The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
"... until a permanent policy is created."
Something needs to be done, imo. They limited all the ways you can oversign to replenish a class, then added additional means of attrition. I think this is a good thing.
You know damn if our roles were reversed you'd have gotten a good laugh at that as well.
@shane, like Brian, you don't know anything about the way roster management is handled at Alabama other than it's better than LSU.
Curious, can you tell me how many times LSU has used the greenshirt option?
This is actually evening the playing field. Nick was doing this for years before it potentially became legal.
I assume Saban does it legally because otherwise that would be the largest failure of the NCAA. But I don’t understand how he convinces players and he is literally the only one doing it. Not even Kirby, who is spending more money than Jordan Belfort on recruiting, is able to convince players to sit out a year to play for him.
I know the comments are just fandom. Name another program that's had as much attention placed up it over the last decade plus.
I can only assume it's pointing to the examples before their arrival. It sure doesn't hurt seeing so many kids decide to leave early and end up as UDFA. To me, it seems like an easy pro v con decision.
Somehow yall missed this gem:
Mac Jones played back up a year and started after Tua got crippled up. Some people can’t wait and end up leaving of their own accord because the competition for snaps doesn’t fit with their mindset.
I know recruiting analysts and experts that cover the Tide have for a couple years now publicly given to trying to understand how Saban and Bama have been able to oversign. There are theories out there that involve medical retirement and different shirts etc, but everyone else's compliance departments that have looked at that have all chosen not to do it because it's too risky.
Saban won't be punished at this point so he can honestly do what he wants. I would be saying the same thing if he was still here and doing it. It is what it is.
