For he’s a jolly good fellow.

Demetrius Goode is a running back who’s transferred from Alabama, where he’s been enrolled since 2007, to North Alabama.  His new coach has done a thorough background check of Goode.

“We’re excited that Demetrius has chosen to finish his college football career here at UNA,” Bowden said. “He comes with the highest recommendations from every coach I had the opportunity to talk to at Alabama in regards to his character, football playing ability and work ethic.”

Um… wouldn’t the highest recommendation be playing time with the Tide?

    Must have been a debilitating injury that ended his Tide career. No? Must have been academics? No? Legal issues? Maybe the coach did not even know that he was on scholarship?

    It’s Saban’s way of giving back to the community.
