    And the Doctor shouldve slapped Fisher's mom several times for giving birth to a true POS. He's a perfect fit for the corruption the NCAA endorses. Fisher claims he doesn't cheat, or lie.. What about the rapist QB you lied about, covered up, and helped to keep playing at fsu?? Would you have covered that up, if it was your daughter (if you had one)? Yeah, you dont lie or cheat jimbo, karma will get you for that comment. And I'll applaud when that happens..

    The lady doth protest too much, methinks. Shakespeare still rings true.

    Jimbo has left taint everywhere he lands. Saban is right: this is boosters buying recruits, pure and simple. And, as long as there was no coordination between them and the school there was no violation.

    Saban just said what everybody knows. It's not a secret and it's no longer illegal. He was trying to impress on the business people at the meeting, that he would be needing more money and support from them. Nothing wrong with that. And, nothing wrong with what A&M did.

    Saban never said Jimbo was cheating...but, if Jimbo expects us to believe he put that Recruiting Class together, without Booster Money and support and NIL Collective dollars...Well sir, he is a Goddamn LIAR. I already knew that, though. He just confirmed it. LOL

    I don't think Jimmy likes people throwing shade on his coaching prowess. Not that he has any. LOL

    He knows, from here on out, if he wins a Championship in the next few years, people are going to say "he bought it"...not "he's a great coach". The boosters are going to get all the credit...not the players or the coaches. Dance with the Devil and it comes with a price. Sounds like he doesn't want to have to pay the band. LOL

    Oh yeah...one more thing. Saban is working on his reasons for pending underperformance in 2022. They don't have the team everybody thinks they have. Other than QB, The offense is going to be atrocious unless they fix that offensive line and find a couple of receivers with Williams and Metchie's abilities. Right now, they just don't have that or the depth they've enjoyed for so many years.

    My take on this: Did Jimbo buy his class using NIL? Absolutely! Did Jimbo break any rules? No.

    Would A&M have been able to sign the No.1 class without NIL? No way.

    Saban is just mad because Jimbo used NIL faster or better or both. Saban is doing the exact same thing.

    Saban is coming out of this looking worse than Jimbo.

    I watched it. Saban isn't mad. He just wants BAMA boosters and businesses to get more involved and up their NIL game. He's competing in the off-the-field, offseason game of recruiting. Smart had better be doing the same thing or Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Arkansas are going to swoop in with their oil money and buy their programs to the top. It's inevitable, IMO.

    You can't blame em...it's allowed. That's all Saban was trying to get across. Like Jimbo, he can't actively get involved with the NIL bidding wars. If they want to maintain dominance, they can't do it the old fashioned way. Old fashioned, being 2020 and prior. LOL

    When Saban, Jimbo and Kirby point their sights on a desired recruit, it's up to the Collective, Boosters and Businesses to step in and make the offer. That's the reality of it. If a coach, assistant, or School representative, gets directly involved...that's a problem.

    The real issue for all BCS schools is that NIL is now being used to buy what is supposed to be an amateur enterprise. I concede it is not any longer and perhaps never was.. To provide balanced access from all involved in the BCS, these collectives should be clearly identified as an official arm of the school program they represent. A ceiling amount should then apply to all of these collectives and decisions should be made between the collective and the football program. The pot available should be reviewed carefully by an independent agency to insure excess has not occurred. NIL for "amateur" sport should be incorporated under the collective and distributed from the annual budget. This would provide equal competitive compensation somewhat akin to what professional teams provide with their agreed upon maximum payment for each team.

    The problem with all that, is two-fold.

    First...players only compete at the College level for 3-4 yrs, so, creating a Player's Union to represent players interests in collective bargaining is not practical. That means every issue will go to court for enforcement and could be tied up for years in litigation. By then, the student-athlete has graduated and moved on.

    Second...the NCAA does not have the authority to enforce anything. If they try to do anything, it will be challenged in court under anti-trust laws.

    That's why the NCAA bent over on the transfer portal. Prior to current transfer rules, if a player transferred, he had to petition the NCAA for waiver. If the waiver was denied, it was challenged in court. So, the NCAA finally just threw their hands up (figuratively) and said, okay everybody gets 1 free transfer without applying for waiver.

    It's going to require Federal Law to give the NCAA an antitrust exemption, otherwise...what you see is what you get. If you want things to change, petition your State Congressional and Senate Representatives. The NCAA can't help you.
