One Would Think The Wheels of Justice Would Finally Turn Again but…

Al Betar, the disassociated booster, is at it again.

This is such a clear major violation coming before the closing of bama’s latest 5 year window. His activities go back at least 7 years and if NCAA rule 12.5.2.1 was enforced, it could cause the vacating of over 70 wins, 3 crystal footballs, and bama’s only Heisman trophy. Two current players and many former players have promoted this private business which would cause immediate ineligibility and it goes back at least to Mark Ingram and encompasses current players T.J. Yeldon and Amari Cooper.

It’s as if Saban doesn’t realize his shields ( Mark Emmert and Derrick Crawford ) are down. Betar, though disassociated, can be seen rubbing elbows on the sidelines and posing with prominent reps of the program.

Oh well. All “good” things come to an end eventually. We just need a level field.

    Don’t hold your breath.

    …..I don’t think the NCAA will touch it. Somebody’s gotta say, “hey, I was paid, and I told Saban about it.” Or someone has to produce some canceled checks or something concrete. Otherwise, the NCAA’s going to pass, I’d think.

    …..And I ran across this CBS piece this morning after posting. Doesn’t look like the vendor is going to spill any beans.

      I saw the same piece. Unless Yahoo Sports is on the trail of something concrete, it’s just a bunch of smoke coming off of some dry ice (you know, smoke without a fire……)

      “They don’t belong to no football players,…” Quite a telling double negative.

      I bet this guy can’t even lie straight in bed. Not that it will amount to anything, as others have said. They’d have to knock over a bank or something, and even then I think it would be called ‘an alternative withdrawal method’ by the Updykes and defended to the grave.

    I’m a black helicopter kinda gal but I have just about given up……how many times can this be served up on a platter. It went national last time but even those guys gave up. Maybe this time they won’t be so scared of the little man as the chink in the armor has started showing up. Charles Robinson better be quick about it if he’s going to get them in the violation window……

    It’s really unbelieveable to me that OSU, USCw and Penn State are not the force behind an investigation. They have a lot to prove. It can’t be just Auburn whineing as we are their rival.

    What’s going to happen after this convention is that they are going to try to get the rules changed before someone figures out what’s going on.

      My kind of gal. I have worn out several tin foil hats but this time I truly believe the mountain of hard evidence is too big to ignore. Saban’s shields, Emmert and Crawford, are in hot water themselves and there are those who are pushing for a level playing field. A credible source says the wheels of justice were slowed by the NCAA’s debacles over Miami and Penn State but they are slowly rolling toward T-Town. My animus comes from what we endured and survived and the dark side’s label of cheater aimed at Auburn while they have thumbed noses at the NCAA feeling protected by “friends of the program”. I just want fairness. We play by the rules and so should they.

    It would be nice to see Alabama held to the same NCAA standards that Auburn has been so stringently held to for as long as I can remember but I don’t see it happening. No media outlet in the state of Alabama is going to press the issue. ESPN has been presented multiple opportunities to roast the Updykes but has never really followed through.
