That sounds not safe for work, for home, or for wife.


(Edit: I thank the OP for at least leaving it in the body of the post after changing the subject line, so this still makes a little sense).

I've discovered there is a spell checker, but you have to switch to plain text editor to get in, in which case there is so much gobbled-y-gook html text, that sometimes it is hard to see what you were writing. Upon further investigation, while Satan is a suggested correction for Saban, it is forth on the list after Saba, Sabin and Saran, and does not auto correct to Satan.

Can Alabama do this?  Maybe we need to go improve some of our pipeline schools as well.  If we don't get HaHa, I hope he goes to Florida, can't stand Saban.

Excellent.  That means all of OUR recruits will have nicer facilities to work out in and will be in better shape when they enroll at Michigan.

Thanks Tide.  See ya in 2012 - don't forget to say TTFN to Mr. Hart.  You'll be seeing a LOT him that year coming out of our backfield - not yours.

In a hypothetical (HYPOTHETICAL PEOPLE, DONT FREAK OUT) world where Dee switches his committment to Bama, would this be considered a recruiting violation?


December 21st, 2010 at 6:19 PM ^

Something tells me no since the improvements benefits all of Dr. Phillips High School. Doesn't make it any more ethical. I doubt Saban has Dr. Phillips' future as his sincere intention or even knows the name of their punter.

I think Saban's face should be a recruiting violation.

Saban is making it hard for me to root for them in the Citrus Bowl. I might just wish the same thing when osu and PSU play each other. The stadium collapses.

Oh, but he did get the money ...


Allegedly from a $200-250K anonymous donation from Auburn boosters; though that part may be a bit hard to prove, since they neglected to write "War Eagle!" on the side of the paper bag with the cash.

Your hypothetical world sucks.

In my hypothetical world the female to make ratio is 25-1 and all of them have been genetically engineered for maximum sexuality.  Manogamy is a quant notion observed in the past somewhere and beer is free.  All Michigan sports teams go undefeated but need miracle comebacks to win AT Michigan State each year thereby ensuring much gnashing of teeth and yelling by said State fans.  All cars made look like 1969 GTO Judge convertables with Ram Air IV engines and get 75 miles per gallon running on water.  They turn the quarter mile in 10 seconds flat by the way.

I know you're suppose to wish for world peace, end of Cancer, end of war, blah blah blah but you've got your hypothetical world and i've got mine.

I'm sorry, but if you ask me that is a violaton.  So if it's free it's okay.  Honestly, there must be something wrong with that.  If that is the case, I think Michigan should rotate practices at every major HS with a pipeline to Michigan during their offseason workouts. 

Who in the world would call that fair and/or who from the NCAA authorized that.  In my opinion, they should be practicing at a near-by small college or university.  I call BS!



December 21st, 2010 at 6:19 PM ^

I heard about this a few days back and got immensely pissed off that the NCAA would allow such a thing.  Now I'm pissed again.  Thanks.

This is so transparently dirty, even for Saban and the SEC. I mean, they're not even in the same state! I could see if they were across the street like Ann Arbor Pioneer, but come on.


December 21st, 2010 at 9:59 PM ^

thanks for pointing that out, I wasn't aware. And here I thought the practice field of Pioneer was where great Michigan teams were forged and men were made Michigan Men. I don't think they're practicing there with pure intentions either, in case you're saying that makes it okay. Scratching a check is just an obvious way to cover their asses while they stay as close as possible to those precious recruits.

Wow. I can't believe how much people are bitching about kids getting upgraded football facilities. I'm pretty certain no one here would be crying foul if michigan improved cass techs facilities. Its a net good thing for the community -- and sorry if it makes you neurotic about our recruits. There are much much worse things recruiters can do.

BTW, not sure why this would affect recruiting and all - it has nothing to do with anything related to a kid's college football career.
