I think Saban just called it as it is. He basically said A&M bought their players with NIL deals, but that it’s legal right now and things have to change for the long term good of college football. Then Jimbo made a big show, attacking Saban’s character and trying to make a bleeding heart appeal for everyone to remember the innocent 17 year olds. Jimbo knows deep down that he’s playing with a stacked deck. He’s not fooling anyone other than his base.
No way he pulls out an emergency press conference the morning after like Jimbo did today to go on an uncontrollable bridge burning rant like that.
SCar folks have been throwing out crap like that about Newspring and Dabo well before this NIL stuff and you've never heard a peep from the man. When the screaming and hollering starts, like Jimbo let loose with today, it's hit too close to home.
Jimbo stood up for himself, and used 17 year olds and their families as human shields in the process. Saban said the way NIL is being implemented is not how it was intended when conceived. He used Texas A&M as an example. Jimbo’s reaction was his way of justifying what he did, which is odd, since he did nothing wrong. Sounds like he’s taking a lot of heat, and maybe has mixed feelings himself, and it came to a head in that over the top outburst.
and Jimbo today. Nick is telling the truth and wasn’t overly emotional when he said it. More matter of fact. Then you have Jimbo freaking out and ranting today saying the word DESPICABLE multiple times. That clown knows good and well that when Saban said A$M was buying players he likely means NIL. Does anyone really think Jimbo all of a sudden this year got all these fantastic players like never before? Yep that NIL money had nothing to do with the best recruiting class he’s ever had!!! He be a clown ??
schizophrenic chittering squirrel hyped up on meth with Ernest T. Bass syndrome. He fast talks garbage so much that he can barely make coherent sentences...
I've watched both videos of the "tiff" and truthfully Saban nailed NIL and the current state of college football to the wall. For all of Jimbo's pearl clutching self-righteous sanctimony, he never actually refuted the facts that Saban laid out about A&M. Instead Jimbo the chittering squirrel just hid behind personal attacks, innuendo, and his "17 year old kids" to try and obfuscate the fact that he did essentially use the NIL system to buy a top rated recruiting class.
