    Coach Saban goes off on programs buying players (A&M, Jackson State, and Miami mentioned)

    I confess that I have not been following the legal aspects of NIL, just the associated fallout in recruiting. I am not a lawyer, but I know a couple of them. 😁 Would it not be possible for the NCAA to say that in order to participate in our sanctioned sports activities, you have to be an...

    JessN: Saban unloaded on Texas A&M because no one was listening

    NCAA Portal Talk

    Sooo, no additional Alabama players enter the portal? Wasn’t there speculation of between 2-5 were going into the portal in order to make the roster numbers work out?
