What’s that you say? Nick Saban lying? Nick Saban cheating? Nooo! Say no more. I can assure you that Coach Saban is an upstanding gentleman. He’s direct, honest and willing to fess up when wrong. What’s that about recruiting violations?
Alabama football players are the only ones getting summer workouts in before the beginning of the college football season. Head coach Nick Saban has decided to lead by example and work on his lying and cheating before the fall. Now that’s leadership! Alabama has “self-reported three secondary NCAA violations in football since Oct. 16, 2006, and is preparing a report on coach Nick Saban’s recent contact with recruits that might have broken the rules”.
Nice to see that he didn’t waste any time getting down to business and restoring pride and integrity back to Alabama football…
“Secondary violations occur in all sports,” said Chris King, associate athletic director for compliance. “The NCAA manual is so thick, they’re going to happen. These violations were all isolated and inadvertent. It shows that our compliance system is working.”
Teach those kids to take responsibility for their actions, Bama. Saban and the Tide will be a great fit. It looks like they finally have all the pieces to make a death penalty run. It hurts to come so close without getting it. Ask Kevin Dyson. That elephant’s trunk should be a mile long by the end of the season.
