According to On3 Sports, Nick Saban flew in baseball legend Pete Rose via a private jet to speak to his Alabama players about the impact of gambling...
quote:

“Well, we try to get the best speakers that we possibly can that address issues that we’re facing in college football,” Saban said. “As well as people who can help create a mindset that’s going to help you be more consistent, so that you can get the results that you want, relative to the commitments that you make. I think we have a really good blend of all those types of people. Obviously, you guys know what the issues are. And you know, if you look at players that are suspended for whether it’s gambling, drugs, and alcohol, whatever, so those are all things that we’re trying to educate players on, relative to consequences of good and bad behavior cause and effect.”

“Because we don’t want anybody to suffer negative consequences that might have an impact and affect their brand and that all goes to the choices and decisions that they make,” Saban said. “And if we can impact those through education with good speakers, that’s the goal of what we try to do throughout the year. But it’s the same thing, it’s more condensed in fall camp.”

Pete "Charlie Hustle" Rose was one of the great ones. His style of play is sorely missed today. He made watching the game very enjoyable.

If Alabama players play as hard as Charlie Hustle did no one will beat them. He was all out all the time.

They had an incident with murder so they bring in Ray Lewis to speak with team. Another sport had a gambling thing going and now they bring in Pete Rose.
