Saban has aligned himself DIRECTLY with Dabo on this NIL

issue. Now, we get to see how Pawl Finebomb walks back all the crucifying comments he has made about Dabo over this. Or, probably not. Just like the 2018 Clemson championship beatdown of Bama, it took him and his cronies about three days to come up with an "alternate theory" about why it happened. He will probably do the same here.
If this mess is ever going to get fixed it will take guys with the clout of Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney to get involved and not just in media rants and conference meetings.
I cannot state how much I hate the idea of Federal politicians getting involved in college athletics but at this point I really don't see another alternative. Apparently Nick Saban doesn't see any other alternative as well. I can only imagine how hesitant Saban and Swinney are to getting involved in discussions with politicians about the college sports landscape but I can't think of two better guys to make the case and provide recommended changes. I'd much rather have their input into any future laws than someone of Jimbo Fisher's ilk...
Nick Saban took the stage on Wednesday night in Birmingham to promote the 2022 World Games but ended up sounding off on NIL, while claiming Texas A&M Nick Saban decided to go after a conference foe on Wednesday night, while also bringing up Jackson State and Miami.
