SI invoking the name of Saban in the Pruitt Scandal

quote:

Is this the kind of thing Texas A&M coach and former Saban assistant Jimbo Fisher had in mind when he challenged reporters in May to “dig into how God did his deal”?

“God” was Saban, of course. Fisher was going back at his former boss—hard—in response to Saban saying that A&M “bought every player on their team” via recruiting inducements disguised as name, image and likeness deals.

“We build him up to be the czar of football,” Fisher ranted. "Go dig into his past or anybody who’s ever coached with him. You can find out anything you want to find out … what he does and how he does it.”

Fisher raised the questions and then shrank from offering specifics, as he and Saban and SEC commissioner Greg Sankey worked strenuously to make the shocking crossfire disappear. Two months later, we get the details on how a former Saban assistant and his staff allegedly broke NCAA rules with impunity.

Maybe he learned it in Tuscaloosa. Or maybe he’s just a unique simpleton hired by a flagrantly unqualified athletic director, the result of a truly absurd moment in Tennessee football history. Either way, losses plus probation give Jeremy Pruitt his one claim to fame: He’s the worst SEC hire of the 21st century.

That sounds pretty damn close to being libel.

Especially since the mastermind behind it was most likely Fulmer.

This isn’t an article about Chad Morris. Writer lost all credibility with a statement that asinine.

I disagree. Chad Morris only lost. Pruitt lost with more talent and left the school with 18 Level I sanctions.

What a silly post.

Is there anyone with an IQ over 80 that thinks Nick Saban would ever get close enough to any scheme that he or Miss Terry would directly give money to recruits or players?

The writer is Pat Forde, who never had credibility to begin with.

None of them have directly been connected to him as of yet. He’s still got that lawsuit out for wrongful termination I believe.

Ed Orgeron went 0-8 in the SEC with two first rounders, two first team all-Americans, and a dozen players that got significant playing time in the NFL
