Classless question, but hey, go Derrick.

I was trying to figure out if the interviewers were joking or being serious because they kept asking the same types of questions. I liked his answers though. I do wish he would have got up and left after they kept on asking the same questions.

Sounds like interviewer needs a doll so they can show us where Nick Saban and Alabama hurt them.
What a moronic, classless question to ask your guest! On top of that, according to the article, the interviewers kept probing by asking multiple times. King Henry should have stiff armed 'em.

Unless something has changed in the offseason, the interviewers are his teammates with the Titans. Lewan went to Michigan and Compton went to Nebraska.

Meh theyre his teammates. I took it as tongue in cheek from his buddies. They played big time CFB they know how it works regarding extra benefits. No program is completely above board. But, great answers from Derrick and great blurbs for a recruiting poster.

Taylor Lewan must still be hurt about getting de-pantsed in the 2012 Alabama-Michigan game.

Lewan was the highly-touted left tackle, and we harrassed and pounded his QB Denard Robinson all night. Threw 3 interceptions, and finally left the game when he'd seen enough of the Jerry Dome's ceiling.

I was wondering who these cats were interviewing him. I was quite ticked with how they kept pushing on him. I'm not familiar w Barstool Alabama or I guess it's just Barstool and was wondering why they pushed on him like that.

the rest of CFB swears Bama has to pay players. But now we have one of our Biggest stars saying He wasn’t paid with nothing to lose by admitting it! Then there is a secretly taped video of Nick giving his recruiting pitch. Neither came close to implicating Alabama for paying players . Let It go already!

It appears the Bama fatigue has become so great that people are desperately trying to get Bama put on probation so other teams have a chance.
Article incoming: “Is Bama Fatigue the reason why Alabama won the title in 2021?”
Article goes on to explain how Alabama’s opponents may have been too fatigued by Alabama’s rousing success to win any games against the Tide in the 2020 football season.

If those guys were his teammates, In Derrick's response of being paid in rings, I wish he would have followed up with his own question, such as, 'What did you guys get paid'?

Roll Tide!
