Title Win

The same Sports Illustrated story that alleged Lewis obtained a banned deer-antler spray also contained a report that several Alabama football players received S.W.A.T.S. products prior to the Crimson Tide's January 2012 win over LSU in the BCS national title game.

S.W.A.T.S. representative Christopher Key showed Sports Illustrated video of him passing out "chips" to Alabama players two days before the BCS game. The "chips" are stickers that athletes place on their wrists and heart for an alleged energy boost. Crimson Tide linebacker Alex Watkins later confirmed the effectiveness of the company's chips, "negatively charged" water and deer-antler pills in a YouTube video, SI reported.

The players were given the products for free, though Key told them he'd claim they purchased the goods from him, according to the report.

LSU players used S.W.A.T.S. products prior to beating Alabama in November 2011, according to SI.

The S.W.A.T.S. products reportedly contain IGF-1, a natural, anabolic hormone that stimulates muscle growth. IGF-1 is banned by the NCAA, the NFL and other major pro sports leagues.

The SI report also stated that NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman, baseball player Johnny Damon and golfer Vijay Singh obtained products from S.W.A.T.S.

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.

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

If you are a Alabama booster you better not talk ..or ELSE!!!

2006

ESPN is reporting that “A man found dead Tuesday in a Memphis home is believed to be Logan Young, an Alabama booster convicted of bribing a high school football coach to get a top recruit for the Crimson Tide.”

Police are investigating the case as a homicide

How to cheat pee test (i hear)

1) use someone elses pee ...either freeze it and microwave it, and smuggle it in

2) take a pill, or a drink

3) most of the substances are out of the system within 14 days or less!

also sold its goods to members of the 2012 national championship Alabama football team, according to a co-owner of the company.

And Christopher Key, the SWATS co-owner, told ESPN's Joe Schad on Wednesday he personally witnessed about five Alabama players spray what he sold them into their mouths.

"I showed them how to use it," Key said.

Key said about 20 players purchased the spray at a hotel room in New Orleans leading into the BCS national championship game against LSU. And he said he sold about 20 more bottles to players at the apartment of an Alabama player 10 days before the game.

Sports Illustrated first reported the connection between SWATS, an Alabama-based company, and several SEC programs.

The Sports Illustrated story reported that Key filmed a sales pitch to a number of Alabama players two days before the 2012 title game in New Orleans. The article mentioned former Crimson Tide defensive lineman Quinton Dial and current players Adrian Hubbard and Alex Watkins as being part of the sales pitch.

Watkins made a YouTube testimonial for SWATS, and Hubbard was filmed in the hotel room saying he had the deer-antler spray, SI reported. Deer-antler spray contains a substance, IGF-1, which is on the NFL's banned list.

"Nothing we offer them will make them fail a drug test," Key said, when asked about the substance being banned by the NCAA. "This will make you heal faster. This will give you nutrients. There have been many clinical studies."

NCAA not as poor as they would have you think!!!

But an examination of the NCAA's 2010-11 operating budget suggests it at least has very deep pockets.

According to an NCAA budget released Feb. 15, the Indianapolis-based group expected to rake in $757 million through TV and marketing rights fees, championship revenue and other services.

This is who we have running NCAA?????

Let me get this straight. The NCAA broke the rules while investigating whether Miami broke the rules.

The NCAA looks guilty of unethical conduct, a failure to monitor and a lack of institutional control.

There's only one penalty that fits those crimes, especially since the NCAA would have to be considered a repeat offender.

The death penalty.

There's never been a better time - or more good reasons - to blow the whole system up and start over.

Eleven years ago next Friday, NCAA Infractions Committee chairman Thomas Yeager explained the major sanctions he and his colleagues had just dropped on Alabama football this way: "They were absolutely staring down the barrel of a gun."

Where are Yeager and his weapon when you really need them?

The irony in the latest example of NCAA misconduct and malfeasance is wicked and delicious. In its zeal to bring Miami football and basketball to justice - a probe launched on the word of former Hurricanes booster and convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro - the association's enforcement staff did something that would get a coach fired, a booster disassociated and a program banned from the postseason.

At least.

The NCAA admitted Wednesday that it had used Shapiro's own lawyer on a contract basis to obtain information to make its case against Miami during depositions in a totally unrelated bankruptcy proceeding against Shapiro.

During a teleconference, NCAA President Mark Emmert called the actions of the enforcement staff "a very severe issue of improper conduct."

He didn't add "unethical," but he could have.

Emmert described a situation that would seem to be a textbook case of a failure to monitor and a lack of institutional control, perhaps the two most serious charges in the NCAA manual.

"How in the world can you get this far without it being recognized that this was an inappropriate way to proceed?" he asked.

Good question. Here's another: Who's watching the watchers, policing the police?

To get to the bottom of all this, the NCAA has hired an outside firm to figure out who knew what and when did they know it. In the expeditious spirit of Notre Dame's independent two-day investigation into the Manti Te'o fake girlfriend experience, Emmert said he expects this probe to take two weeks.

Yeah. That'll be thorough. Contrast that with the year and a half the NCAA has spent strip-searching Miami.

The good news for the Hurricanes is that this little bombshell will force a rewrite of the Notice of Allegations the school reportedly was about to receive. Some of those allegations, if they were based on the ill-gotten info, may have to be scrapped.

"We cannot have the NCAA bringing forward an allegation that's predicated on information that was collected by processes none of us could stand for," Emmert said. "We're going to move it as fast as possible, but we have to get this right."

So why stop here? Why limit the probe to the alleged "improper conduct" of the enforcement staff? The Miami case isn't the first time the NCAA has used questionable if not unethical methods to dig up dirt against one of its schools.

See the secret witnesses in the Alabama football infractions case of Albert Means. See the Los Angeles Superior Court judge saying, in the USC infractions case of Reggie Bush, that the NCAA investigator's actions were "over the top." See the NCAA investigator who was fired recently for leaking information about a case against a UCLA basketball player.

It's no wonder the enforcement staff cuts corners. Look at its main mission. It's supposed to serve the interests of coaches and schools getting rich on the backs of student-athletes and protect an outdated and unworkable system of amateurism that's nothing more than a house of cards.

What has Shapiro admitted to in the Miami case? Giving cash and prizes to student-athletes. That's the kind of thing that led the school to self-impose a postseason ban in football the last two years, but how did Miami react when Shapiro was making even larger donations to the athletics department itself?

They honored him on the field at a game. They let him run out of the tunnel with the football team before a game. They named a players' lounge on campus after him.

The bigger the payment in college athletics, as long as it's made to the right people, the lesser the objection.

Last weekend, the NCAA passed a massive reform package of 25 proposals that, among other things, will remove pesky limits on the number of phone calls, texts and private electronic communication between schools and recruits. The rich will get richer in terms of rounding up the best players.

After that move, Emmert himself essentially admitted that the NCAA can't level the playing field between the likes of Alabama and UAB and would stop trying.

"We're not going to overcome those natural competitive advantages people have," Emmert said.

A week later, we see the latest evidence that the NCAA can't police itself, either. So what exactly is the point of Emmert's organization? That's a question worth investigating. It'll probably take more than two weeks to get to the right answer, though.

If Emmert really wants to reform major college athletics, he can start by recognizing his semi-professional athletic enterprise for what it is. He can lead the charge to stop the hypocrisy and start over.

Or he can continue the lie and preside over the death of the NCAA.

The growth hormone associated with velvet deer antler, Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency and all major sports leagues. But the national lab that tests supplements for the MLB and the NFL, NSF International, does not have a test for it.

MOBILE, Alabama -- A Monroe County doctor and a north Alabama man pleaded guilty this morning to participating in a steroids conspiracy. The defendants are Dr. Mark Peter Koch, who has offices in Monroeville and Wilcox County's Camden, Ashley Dewayne Rivers, a satellite technician from the Morgan County town of Lacey’s Spring.

MOBILE, Ala. -- James A. Abernathy was the first of a group of a dozen people indicted here on steroids conspiracy charges to admit his guilt. On Thursday, he became the last to be sentenced.

As president, chief executive officer and principal owner of Applied Pharmacy Services, A. Samuel Kelley reaped the largest share of the millions of dollars that flowed into the Mobile-based compounding pharmacy. That was enough for u.S. District Judge Ginny Granade to sentence him to 10 years in prison — by far, the longest handed down to any of the defendants so far

MOBILE, Ala. -- A federal judge today handed down a four-year prison term to a local pharmacist convicted of participating in a nationwide conspiracy to illegally sell anabolic steroids made in Mobile.
