Interesting info from Jimbo the other day.  Only 1 of their 10 early enrollees had a NIL deal.  He didn’t say anything about the incoming class as a whole, but the 10 that came early, only 1…

Does anybody really trust Jimbo though? Isn’t sliced bread a much more credible source for this sort of information? 
 

On a serious note this is a big statement from Jimbo because it at some point could be verified. He put a very specific statement out there that could one day make him a liar. It wasn’t a vague statement he could hide behind later. Short of hooking these kids and Jimbo up to polygraphs I’m not sure what more he could do. At some point those making the accusations are eventually going to have to come up with something other than “hOw eLSE wOuLd a 8-4 TEaM tHaTs neVer WoN anYTHing rECruit tHiS GoOd? derp derp derp?”

Evan Stewart.

Stewart is likely to make money with or without football in his life. The guy is a character and has the type of strong social media presence that gets you paid even as a normal person. I think he will blow many people out of the water with NIL deals because of that not because of anything he does on the field.

About what is expected. Saban can say whatever he wants with impunity, Jimbo is the devil for firing back. Both crossed the line no doubt but had it been Jimbo making his statements first and then Saban responding with his comments I do not believe it would be viewed the same. 
 

I actually like Saban and respect him as the absolute GOAT, but his statements coming first seemingly unprovoked are seriously tarnishing a lot of image right now. That’s why I think he’s on the way out after this year. Likely going to have a dominant team, win his title and then leave saying he doesn’t want to play the NIL game anymore.

Funny you say that....

I just do not see how you could widen the gap if you’re Bama. When it comes to alumni reach, Bama is not the top dog. They are actually probably not even top 5in terms of ability to “pay” players if NIL is done by alumni and not the school. NIL will not widen the gap for them IMO. If they could truly compete with NIL, you would not have seen Saban take the stance he did. He would have been boasting about all their deals as he did when Bryce Young got his before he started. 
 

Basically Saban is condemning what A&M and Fisher allegedly did but if he could do the same why condemn it? All it does is open up the same remarks towards him if he “buys” a class next year…. No imo this is Saban getting frustrated not Saban preparing to catch another gear.

If most kids don’t care about NIL and go to the schools because of winning, tradition, culture, making it to the NFL, etc., then Saban should not have anything to worry about.

I didn’t say he would be left behind. He will always recruit well. What I said is he will not WIDEN his gap.
