    If I were a betting man I would bet they are never punished for anything!

    It doesn't mean they'll be kept. They're just being kept around to try to hold recruits. Remember Carl what's his name, the DC, did it when Fran left (he also lobbied for the HC job). Who did it for Shula? Kines? Didn't Lance do it when Kiffie left UT? Interesting though about troopa and loopa and the NZAA. Boogs probably feel they have no other choice to try to hold onto recruits and have to risk it. I hope it comes back to bite them in the butt big time. A great catch 22 - try to hold a recruit but hopefully get nailed worse by NCAA. Couldn't happen to a more sleazy bunch.

    The way it looks to me, theyve punished themselves far beyond anything the NCAA could do to them.

    Yea he did fairly well here and seemed really heartbroken when he had to leave. He has posted a few good defenses in his day, but when they were bad, they were BAD!

    I think he only made it 2 or 3 years at aTm if that long.

    Torbush's defenses here were pretty strong, I liked him. But man, did he ever get torched @ ATM. Just wow.

    Meh...I'd quibble a bit. His 2002 unit was pretty stout, but the 2001 squad was the most porous pass defense I've ever seen fielded at Alabama.

    Really, looking at Torbush's career the 2002 season at Alabama was an anomaly. That unit had pretty good talent and leadership. His defenses were routinely crushed at North Carolina, Texas A&M and later Kansas under Turner Gill.

    Well that's it the door just opened for API to hire Gruden. We know they can handle the players salary cap.
