    No Profanity — How many times do we go over this?

    A grawlix is acceptable still, correct?

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

    Saban didn't say anything that could get him in any real trouble. Sankey may call him and ask him to chill out, but that's it. He may end up apologizing, but then again he may not since the two people he would apologize to have said much, much worse things in response.

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

    I don't think states will be able to lay claim to money earned in NIL deals the way states lay claim to the salaries NFL players make. California gets some money from Aaron Rodgers if the Packers play LA but I don't believe they get any of his endorsement money.

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

    It's already happening. Not billions to one guy of course, but there are guys who are getting 6 figures before ever putting on a jersey for their school. This is well documented.

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

    Well, Miami paid a Kansas State player $800,000 to transfer in. It was paid for by Florida billionaire John H Ruiz. He admitted it. Saban mentioned $400,000 but it was double that. If teams in Florida can harness their alumni and boosters then they have a chance to regain the powerhouse status...

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

    Alabama has no billionaires (neither does MS). Texas has 48. Florida has 44. Alabama has about 95,000 households that can be considered millionaires. Texas has 650,000. Florida has 500,000. If it's a spending race then Alabama is in trouble. A billionaire could spend 1/10th of 1% of a...

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

    The problem is that there's a lot more money in Texas than in Alabama. Alabama is one of the handful of states without a single billionaire. TAMU and Texas have much deeper pockets and can afford to buy players. Alabama can't do it to that extent.

    Jimbo stepped it up a level. He made it personal.

    Once you turn 70 you stop giving a rip about anyone’s opinion.

    Early Vegas Odds

    If you bet $100 on Bama to win the national title every year since Saban came to Bama you'd be be up $2640.

    Early Vegas Odds

    TAMU has the 5th best odds in the country to win the national championship. That's the second best preseason odds they've had in generations.

    Bama vs Utex

    I'm trying to talk my wife into going to Austin for the game. We went to College Station last year and except for one minor issue, it was a perfect experience. I'd love to go back in 2023.

    Reports: Bama/Texas To Be an 11:00AM Kickoff

    There's a chance I'll go to the game, so 11am isn't ideal. My Sister in Law lives in Houston, so we'd probably stay with her and then drive to the game. That's what we did with the playoff game in Dallas 2 years ago and the TAMU game last year. It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive to Austin, so we'd...

    Eli Ricks Arrested-Charge Dismissed by Court

    "Not doing anything wrong" and "not breaking the law" are two different things. It's obviously illegal to go over the speed limit, but in some cases, it's unsafe *not* to speed. No one here thinks that will get them out of a ticket.

    Eli Ricks Arrested-Charge Dismissed by Court

    Everyone who drives 90 knows it's illegal and that they are subject to getting a ticket. No one thinks they can get out of it by talking to a judge.

    Eli Ricks Arrested-Charge Dismissed by Court

    He was pulled over in the afternoon on a 2 lane highway between Tuscaloosa and New Orleans/Baton Rouge. If he was just speeding a little, and that's my guess since they didn't charge him with anything more severe, then I really don't see the big issue. He wasn't going 130 down a city street at...

    Eli Ricks Arrested-Charge Dismissed by Court

    So he was pulled over for speeding and didn't have proof of insurance and had weed in the car. Not a big deal to me. Not a good decision, but how many people have gotten tickets for speeding? No insurance? Weed? I'm not all that worried about that. Better than a DUI.
