    The worst part - you know that GA was violating the no contact rule while it was playing out. The only reason that Smith wanted to go to GA was because he was guaranteed a starting position in their secondary. He had one year to play and was going to be a role player for Alabama. Can't prove it, but you know that it was happening.

    I wouldn't doubt there was tampering going on.............and UGA should have had their toes stomped for it............I know quite a few UGA guys who were shocked he was allowed to come to UGA.............The SEC should have forced Kirby to allow those players to go to Miami

    I think this is exactly right. Coach Saban will follow conference rules and let Sankey override him. He'll be asked about it and coach will say he followed conference rules. If Sankey doesn't want this rule enforced, then at least have the stones to overturn it!

    The SEC allows him to suit up for each of our SEC opponents the week we play them.
    A broader educational experience that way.

    ^^^^ This. Saban's in a no-win spot. Make Sankey take the heat. If he wants to allow free agency, well, if we ever, say, need to poach a starting QB from an opponent who could be the difference between their team making a bowl game or us winning the Natty, well, y'all made your bed.

    Not really - Saban could just choose to approve the transfer. He did not have to deny the appeal. Other conferences have the same rule but teams often allow the transfers when it is clearly in the player's best interests.

    But very little is ever said when programs block players from going to future opponents. From a distance, there are plenty of good options for BK without having to go to a future opponent. There are even other SEC programs such as So Car, UGA, UF, Vandy or UK. Previously, Bama has been the only school to catch any heat. Sankey's involvement with Smith was indecisive and tepid as usual. Bama hasn't caught the heat this time, at least not yet. I hope CNS holds the line and Sankey shows a little courage.

    I believe you could clarify your statement. My understanding is: Saban COULD break the rule and allow the transfer. I don't believe he can unilaterally deny an appeal. The appeal is to Sankey. This is all nice and sweet when you're picking on the embarassment of riches that is Alabama. What about when we need Vandy's best player? or Kentucky's? Or a Georgia back-up QB?

    He can let the SEC know that he is okay with the transfer and put it completely on them to decide. Note - I am not saying that he should, only that he could.

    I'm still trying to figure out why Auburn could be in his best interest. I keep hearing how that offenses like the one Gus runs is bad for NFL development, now all the sudden that's the place to go to get ready for the NFL?
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.
