REEXISTING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE NCAA PRESIDENT, WITH RICH AND OUT OF CONTROL BOOSTERS, AND A COACH WHO WILL GET RECRUITS JOBS (OR THEIR GIRLFRIEND) NOT TO MENTION SAY AND DO ANYTHING TO GET THEM ELIGIBLE! ESPN HAS 2.25B interest in the SECs success, AND Emmert was put where he is becasue Sabans Success and no way Emmert does anything but protect Saban!!! The government has made it such a pain in the behind for online betting that it is not worth the risk to load up and bet on Bama!!!
As long as EMMERT IS IN CHARGE OF THE NCAA... ALABAMA CAN DO NO WRONG!!!
Feb 2011 Alabama still on probation mind you!!
The NCAA Committee on Infractions released a statement last year calling the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa the following:
A "serial repeat violator," with an "abysmal infractions track record" and an "extensive recent history of infractions cases unmatched by any other member institution in the NCAA.”
There were (allegedly) recruiting violations with current high school junior, Barry Sanders, Jr. He was seen at a recent home basketball game seated with his dad, Barry Sanders Sr. (NFL Hall of Famer) and coach Nick Saban sitting right between them. Sure, it’s conceivable they got their tickets from the same scalper. "Hey, Barry, what’s up!? Great seats, huh? Oh really, your son plays football? How nice."
I probably could have gotten two seats together.

But he also said he would sign a piece of paper to show that they are keeping their word – they are going to sign it and they want me to sign it to make sure I know I still have my scholarship.” [Emphasis added.]
So this kid believes he’s going to get some sort of binding commitment from Alabama for a scholarship in a year’s time. I can’t wait to hear from the NCAA about that. (Not to mention every school in the SEC.)
I said most interesting, because that’s not the only eye-popping comment this kid made. Check this out:
“He said I’m going to stay in Georgia. They are going to find me a job. I’m going to work. I’m going to physical therapy at least seven days per week. I guess I will work, go to physical therapy and get strong … I will come in with the class of 2013. I’ll get there with the early group so I can do winter workouts and spring football.”
Trent Richardson and Booster:
Trent Richardson and Former Alabama Booster Relationship?

Okay, I’ll preface this post by making it clear we have NO OPINION on this matter, but that at the very least its entertaining to dream up these scenarios brought to us courtesy of SportsbyBrooks. Normally we try to stay away from the NCAA rumor mill, but figured this time we’d led you be the judge about what to make about this, if anything.
Brooks has been on Alabama’s tail all summer about possible NCAA violations, most of which were tied to T-Town Menswear owner Tom Albetar,which Alabama disassociated from last year. Whether or not any of it is true remains to be seen because the NCAA has yet to lend a firm hand in that mess.
The latest controversial claims by Brooks is that a disassociated Alabama booster had a relationship with Alabama running back Trent Richardson. Oh Brooks, you really must hate Alabama!
“WHAT THE? Why would disassociated Alabama booster have photo of Trent Richardson birthday cake? Is it unreasonable to think that Richardson may have received a gift or three from that same disassociated booster if he was at a Richardson birthday function? Seriously, am I being unreasonable asking that question?”
