    This is the same sort of ambush reporting that affected the Patriots at the end of the 2007 season. This report comes out just three days before Alabama plays Texas A&M at College Station. It's designed to try and undermine Alabama's morale and to try and put an "*" beside their two consecutive national titles.

    As far as I'm concerned, Coach Saban did exactly the right thing. That presser was not the time or venue to discuss these BS allegations, but the mediots down there are no different than the mediots up here. They muckle onto anything they think can hurt someone, can get them face time or another byline, no matter whether they destroy lives, reputations or football teams.

    Patriots fans ought to be upset at this, as we've lived through this same sort of crapweasely crapweasel crap before.

    GO BAMA!

    ROLL TIDE!

    So you believe reporters should be accommodating and wait for Saban to "grant permission" to discuss unfavorable stories. Too funny. Accommodating reporters ignored a decade's worth of violations at Oklahoma State. Accommodating administrators ignored a decade's worth of pedophilia at Penn St. Accommodating coaches ignored criminal behavior at Florida and Ohio St..............and you think it's wrong in this day and age for reporters to ask serious questions of head coaches that rule like sovereigns?

    Just because our favorite coach violated some (admittedly bs) rules doesn't mean we have to defend every coach under fire for something similar.

    It seems you can't have excellent consecutive recruiting classes anymore without reports coming out later on that the college in question gave the players illegal benefits. It's a shame and a real black eye for the NCAA and college football as a whole.

    That's been going on from day one, way back to the early days of college football. They just chose to expose it now.

    :confused:

    This is about agents at the end of a college career not the colleges at the start.

    I understand that was the case in this story. My comment was a generalization in some of the scandals that have rocked college football recently as well.

    Sorry but it was a bad generalization. There's been plenty of schools in the last ten years with consistent top ten classes in which the school has never been accused or suspected in any way of giving anying illegal to the players.

    Saban has actually been out in front of this agent problem (generally not Fluker specifically) since long before this came out yesterday.
