    OT wonder what was going on at Alabama?

    UTSA: The school says it remains committed to new defensive line coach Bo Davis after the NCAA penalized him with a show-cause penalty for an issue at Alabama

    Davis resigned from the staff at Alabama in April 2016 after an investigation into his recruiting practices. The fact that he lied about the situation did not help his cause. The matter was resolved upon his resignation.

    Nothing to see here, please keep moving...........

    Alabama had been doing some fishy stuff in recruiting? I'm SHOCKED, shocked!! I'm even considering writing a strongly worded letter to Saban about this!

    The old coffee cup trick. Wonder where he learned that one?

    In this case, the cover-up was worse than the crime. He could have just been hit with a one-game suspension for in-person contact outside the permitted period, but, because he lied about something that wasn't really horrible, he is now driving a truck.

    Probably too young to remember Watergate...

    They don't need to cheat. Heck, they get grayshirts that could sign with any other school in the conference.

    What they do have is an enormous staff and a huge budget dedicated to recruiting. It is true that others are jealous of their success but it really is just a matter of creating an organization and funding it appropriately....

    Oh, I don't need to go back as far as Watergate to find instances where the cover up is worse than the underlying crime.

    Teams stop cheating because they are winning? Did Wooden's teams stop paying players after they won a few championships?

    Teams stop cheating because of changes in program administration. For example, after Mike White was fired by Cal, the Bears stopped cheating.

    I certainly don't believe that Saban is a cheat like some of his predecessors were. As noted, he has built an empire without the need to resort to questionable tactics.

    Oh, they cheat alright. They've just gotten better at covering it up.
