    Poor Bama never seems to get a break.**

    No sympathy from me given the support and resources our baseball program has had for years and could only give out 11.7 scholarships while Bertman was using Lottery scholarships and Corbin was using Vandy's endowment.

    Saban's hypocrisy is beyond delusional. I'm ready for these teams to start spilling the beans on him. It's about time he starts to get some of his own medicine publicly.

    Saban is obviously lying his dick off here, but this system sucks. Absolutely sucks.

    College leadership need to fix this crap & create a system that pays players & promotes parity

    NFL needs to start a small damn minor league. Let them pay these kids. Let them get drafted out of HS. This shouldn't be a college deal. Of course, millionaire college coaches shouldn't be a damn thing either, but the schools, along with TV greed, created that ridiculous problem

    The fact saban is crying should be good news, right? Other schools are about to get some of the players he has won with for so long.

    The Jahmyr Gibbs unvarnished Twitter account:

    Thank you to my coaches, teammates, family, and especially my parents for all the support over the years.
    I am very excited to announce that I have sold my next two years to the many businesses of Tuscaloosa Alabama. Cannot wait to be there to begin building my generational wealth and returning a significant portion of my income to the Tuscaloosa economy. And on behalf of Coach Saban and myself, many thanks to the Tide Collective for infusing the necessary capital to so many businesses to make these NIL deals possible. And also to the three gentlemen who generously made the Tide Collective come to life. You know who you are. I could not be happier. ROLL TIDE!!

    The glory days of college football are in its past. We just need to accept that and see what it turns into in the coming years. Then, we all have to decide if it's worth it personally to continue watching it. That sucks, but that's probably the long and short of it.

    This is what I've been saying all along. While I don't agree with the way the NIL rules are right now, it does even the playing field out more. Paying players has been around for decades so that part isnt new..now these smaller schools that aren't typical blue bloods can legally pay players or help them get paid, so it even things out a little more now.

    I am not real big on how NIL was rolled out, but I think it?s going to help mid level power 5 teams out more so than hurt. It now allows these schools that couldn?t pay players before to look into getting better recruits to field a team by offering more of an incentive. While schools with more money can offer more, it?s about being able to play the game and adapt. My concern for Miss State is that we are slow to adapt to changes in basically all aspects of our University. My fear is that we dig ourselves too big of a hole that we can?t climb out from once other teams have a good pipeline.

    Just watched Jimbo's press conference. He didn't hold back.

    Saban complaining about parity and advantages that A&M have on the NIL is ridiculous.

    If you guys get a chance, watch First take and Undisputed today (you can YouTube it). Skip and Shannon discuss it and so does Paul Finebaum and J will......gives you a little more insight on this NIL stuff.

    Told to me by someone who knows these things:

    "It's been a struggle for us to raise $3MM whereas Florida is approaching their goal of $20MM"

    Correct. That's the only way forward at this point. Look at the nfl

    Salary Caps musta passed constitutional muster in professional sports because I assume they were initially challenged in court which resulted in a better product due to the parity created. As much as I dislike NIL in its current form, I think fair and common sense NIL Caps could actually level college athletics' playing field quite nicely resulting in a better situation than Pre-NIL. Some Socialism is good for sports IMO.

    Post I made on 4/24...

    IMO it will only get fixed when nontraditional football schools with more money than Bama, etc. start putting together super teams and start taking the blue bloods’ candy so to speak. For example, what if Harvard, Yale, Stanford types decided to organize some of those billionaires and top 25 in football started looking like it did back in the 1920’s? I think there would suddenly be a lot of discussion about doing something.

    FYI Texas A&M and Texas are going to be able to put together the best NIL packages in the SEC .
