Saban vs. Oversigning.com

Nick Saban’s met the challenge of recruiting rules changes before and survived – nay, prospered.  But is he ready to deal with this?

If you have not yet finalized your transfer plans, we would like to strongly recommend to you that you contact Marc Bailey at www.parentsofplayers.com to discuss your rights under by-law 15.3.2.4.  Marc is experienced in negotiating fair treatment for players looking to transfer, being forced to transfer, or just flat not being renewed, and he might be able to negotiate with your coaches to sign a “sit out waiver” so that you can continue to pursue your football and educational interests at the FBS level instead of going to JUCO or FCS.

Please consider talking to Marc, he’s a former player that understands the difficult and life-altering decisions you have to make at this crucial time in your life, and he also knows about all the tricks coaches are going to use on you to encourage you to transfer out of their program so they can get their roster down to 85 players by August.  You have absolutely nothing to lose by spending 10 minutes on the phone with him and he might be able to help you land at another SEC school or another FBS school, especially if you feel as though your transfer was encouraged in any way.   If you don’t feel comfortable in talking to Marc, ask your high school coach to contact him.

I suspect Saban doesn’t have time for this shit, but stay tuned.

  1. The market responds to an opportunity. Now when we will see his commercials on bad cable TV networks?

    Ahh – Who cares about a bunch of castoffs and runoffs !

    There are always consequenses – the only question is ‘when’?

  3. back-to-back advertisments with the TaxMaster!

    I truly wonder just how much of a market there is for this being that the affected demographic (potential consumers) is so small.

    Is oversigning an issue? yes.
    Does it jeopardize student’s roles and create a hyper-competitive environment? Yes.
    Is it a manipulation of the rules and mar the sport? yep.

    That being said, I get a big kick out of oversigning.com’s unending butthurt over SEC schools with the Tressel egg all over his face.

    Brother Bluto, you’re right on target about “Saban doesn’t have time for this shit”. Give the devil his due, this guy is right back at work thinking of ways (and acting) to get an advantage on his competition. I don’t defend or agree with his ethics and of course would never send my kid to ‘bama, but come Saturdays this fall his team will be ready to play. And on signing day he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

    A couple of Billy Bob Bailey’s kin from Fort Deposit are going to visit Marc Bailey, ask politely if he can do them a favor and stop, then inquire about his family. Nick Saban won’t have to lift a finger or even voice a consent.

    Can we just stop mentioning the site and let it die? It served its purpose. He had his 15 minutes, Time to move on.

    “The market responds to an opportunity.” History has proven that to be true.

    “We’re now in the middle of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Do you feel any responsibility for what’s happening?”

    “Hey, markets is markets. Whatever happens in a market is what’s supposed to happen. You’re not supposed to interfere. That’s why they call the market the hidden hand. If I can see your hands, it’s communism.”
