    Saban: Texas A&M 'bought every player on team'

    "I mean, we were second in recruiting last year," Saban told the audience. "A&M was first. A&M bought every player on their team -- made a deal for name, image, likeness. We didn't buy one player, all right? But I don't know if we're gonna be able to sustain that in the future because more and more people are doing it. It's tough."​

    It's basically legal now. Why didn't Alabama buy even one player?

    Saban says Alabama bought no players and he's a lying sack of crap. He says A&M bought evey player and it's the gospel truth. I'm.confused.

    Think what you will of Finebaum, but he nailed - There are no NCAA rules so it's open season on cheating.

    Aggy is putting their money to work.

    I swear to God I'm pulling for aggy right now. Then it'll be our turn to buy our way into being one of the premier teams in the SWC, i mean SEC.
    You think 'ol Finebaum would like to see A$M and Texas dominate his precious conference for a while?

    Agroids buying players? Tell me it ain’t so.
    Any idiot with half a brain knows the ags have a century of experience doing that. Bret Kavanaugh and his ilk just opened up a huge can of dirty worms with their foolish ruling last summer.
    Now we have to just play the game and do it in an ethical way somehow.

    They already had their method of getting money to players before NIL and didn't adapt. Those brown bags weren't heavy enough to compete against the aggy NIL machine. We all know that historically aggy will lie, cheat and steal to win one more game a year. Without it they can't compete.

    Bama crying foul is hilarious even if it is with aggy. College football is over. Semi Pro football out of high school is the new way and we are well positioned to do well.

    This is great! I love it!! :popcorn:

    Somebody said it already: Aggy is pissed and will be on a mission this year. I'd hate to be their Mayo Bowl opponent this season.

    aggy will still crap the bed. They have done it for the last 82 years if you give them credit for 1939.

    Would Texas have brought in the top OL recruits in the nation without the NIL package put together for them?

    To be clear Nick did not say aggy cheated.
    I think aggy is all upset because they know they cheat and hate that others know it

    I'm not worried about aTm. They set standards in ineptitude by cheating their *** off and winning nothing. When Jackie came in he first "unionized" the cheating, which helped them greatly improve, but then the guys that bought Jackie turned around and fired him.

    Jimbo cheated his *** off at FSU, won once, but couldn't even control a damn Publix manager. As I said back then, "New manager, take him to the Silver Slipper for dinner, buy him a huge steak and explain the rules of free food for players". Jumbo didn't do that, and saving the $200 on that meal, cost FSU millions. He is in the right place, where they have been novices at cheating for over eight decades, and the trophy room is still empty.

    I guess my point is, if aggy or Texas or anyone else can out-coach or outspend or outsmart Alabama for top quality recruits legally, so be it. I guess I'm sick (and jealous) of 'Bama's success and having to listen to Finebaum drool.

    Poor Baby. I mean, he had only the 2nd ranked class in college football so clearly Aggy cheated him.
    now he’s just another one of the “Have-nots” of college football with his meager 2nd ranked and totally clean recruiting class.

    it makes me want to cry. From laughing so hard.

    i mean everyone in the country already thinks we have all the money, we're arrogant, blah blah blah. So by God, let's do the best we can to make their worst nightmares come true.

    Behind all of this is basically a threat. Bama’s about to start cheating like Amber Heard on mdma and mushrooms.

    Right now It isnt cheating. It is using NIL to the very edge.The NCAA if it can stay relevant needs to get control. Not sure they can or will
    If not College sports has ended.
    Is there anything Saban said anyone disagrees with?

    It's like watching a wrestling match. It's kinda entertaining so you watch it, but you know it's all been scripted...

    It's scripted, right?

    Per sports on San Antonio TV, Satan has been trying to call Jombo all day, but Jumbo is refusing the calls. I wouldn't want to be caught in the middle of this one...pizz balloons launched from Tuscabama igniting a fight for the ages. Overheard from collage stashun, "Break out the balloons, funnels & jizz jars, boys. The fight is ON!"

    Saban is frustrated that Jimbo’s backers have $100 oil going for them and all he has is the possum & sweet tater folks from Sand Mountain all maxxed out.
