Saban's time is coming
Get ready, Alabama boys, Nick Saban is getting ready to crash and burn. Mark Emmert has been protecting him. All these cheating accusations keep popping up. He's been caught cheating again. How much will this cost the University of Alabama? Will they sweep this one under the rug? One day, all the cheating will come out. You can only keep it under the water for so long. One day it will pop to the top and they're going to nail Alabama and Nick Saban.
Emmert was chancellor at LSU for five years, from 1999 to 2004, and was instrumental in hiring a promising-but-not-entirely-proven Nick Saban as football coach from Michigan State and handing him one of the sport's richest contracts. Emmert then spent 6½ years as president at Washington and moved from there to the Indianapolis-based NCAA.
What does the SEC earn??
The 2009 season marks the beginning of a new 15-year, $2.25 billion contract with ESPN, which coincides with a 15-year, $825 million deal with CBS. At the SEC's preseason Media Days in Hoover, Ala., this week, league and ESPN officials unveiled the details of their new arrangement, and this much is clear: Whether you're in Alabama or Arizona, Michigan or Mississippi, you're about experience a deluge of SEC football.
Not Everybody cheats, not everybody has a PREEXISTING 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
