was the total NIL money paid to Alabama players. That was so calculated to come out with that number imo. He knows Texas A&M paid much more. I wish at Jimbo’s press conference a journalist could’ve been brave enough to ask how much Texas A&M paid out to their last recruiting class in NIL money. Since Saban had an exact figure for his class, it would’ve been a fair question. I suspect Saban was hoping a journalist would bark up that tree. But none of them were brave or smart enough to ask that question
A&M paid $0, the same as every other school. Since NIL is between a sponsor/employer and an athlete, how a coach knows what a player makes is beyond me. Let's say I owned a business and there was a young man or woman in my church or neighborhood and I wanted the athlete to represent my business, do you think I would tell anyone the details? That would be a big fat no.
In the first part of an exclusive interview, Texas A&M head football coach Jimbo Fisher sits down with KSAT 12's Greg Simmons during a visit to San Antonio and addresses the ongoing drama regarding accusations that the Aggies football program was taking advantage of the new NIL rules to recruit players.
I know for an absolute fact that a current Alabama RB gave college coaches the dollar amount that it would take for him to sign. By and by he winds up at Alabama along with so many others and that was before NIL. Saban needs to shut the heck up. Jimbo is a turd, but Saban has been cheating since Michigan State days and before
I think that the NCAA should require all student athletes to submit a copy of last year's tax return. It would list from whom the athletes were receiving the money. If anything did not seem correct, turn them over to the IRS. That would tighten up everyone.
