Nick Saban, not having coached a single game as the Alabama Head Coach is already picking up where his predecessors (not including Mike Shula, who actually was a pretty upstanding citizen) left off by violating NCAA rules.
According to reports, Saban contacted recruits and violated NCAA rules by exceeding “exchange of greetings” with said recruits by apparently talking about more than well, his name and the name of the recruit.
Now, I’m not usually one to stick up for Bama, let alone a Nick-Saban led Bama, but the NCAA is absolutely losing their minds. I mean, I’m all for rules and everything, but it gets to the point where it seems that SOME concessions need to be made. If the NCAA bans something, schools will find ways around it. It’s always been like that, and I imagine it always will.
Restricting how many words a coach can say to a potential recruit is just crazy talk. But, coming from the organization that wouldn’t let people have fundraisers to send underprivileged parents of student-athletes to watch their kids play in bowl games. Oh yeah, and the NCAA rules committee kills kittens too. Why do you hate kittens NCAA rules committee? And why does the word committee have so many unnecessary letters in it? Let’s change that ruling: NCAA Rules Comite. Yeah.
