considered until now. I had always thought that the NCAA had the staffing issue well regulated to make sure the "haves" did not have a monumental advantage over the "have nots".
But like everything else the NCAA controls, they seem to have screwed this up also.
For all of these so called know it alls to basically say that none of this matters is a hoot. It takes one look at Nick Sabans record at MSU and the Dolphins to realize he is not some genius coach who is heads and shoulders above his peers. Nick and the folks at Alabama have pulled out all the stops and use all the tricks to win at all costs. They make and take every advantage and laugh at the gutless NCAA pretend to care about student athletes.
One other guy operates like this but Nick Saban beat his ass so badly he had to fake a medical problem to get the hell out of the SEC. And to the B1G where he could dominate.
We all know who that guy is.
And regarding preparation for bowl games, you might remember Alabama's QB spouting off after the game about the incredible number of hours the Bama coaches spent with the players before the NC game. Funny. I thought the number of hours coaches were allowed to spend with players was limited by rule of the NCAA? Wonder when that investigation will start?
