The NCAA hits former Alabama defensive line coach Bo Davis with a two-year show cause order for this:
According to the NCAA, Davis knowingly committed a recruiting violation when he took part in an impermissible meeting with four prospective recruits that was pre-arranged by a booster.
Davis then provided false or misleading information about the meeting and the booster’s involvement when questioned by Alabama and the NCAA, according to the NCAA.
His former employer? Well, there’s a slight inconvenience, self-imposed.
Alabama had already self-imposed three penalties, a $5,000 fine, disassociation from the booster and restricting Davis and his replacement, Karl Dunbar, from off-campus recruiting or telephone contact with recruits from April 22, 2016 through May 31, 2016.
Oof. That’s rough. For the booster, I mean.
Alabama commit explains Alabama commitment.
“Alabama is very straight with you,” Davis said. “It’s straight football. I mean, I don’t want to go nowhere else where the basketball team is good, too. I want to go somewhere where it’s straight football, strictly football. And when you get down there, it’s straight business. Even the fans, you go to the restroom and the fans are talking about how the football team is. I really like the business part of it.”
See? There’s your problem in a nutshell, Dawg fans. ‘Bama folks talk about the football team in the bathroom. We’re too wrapped up in the crappy state of our crappers to focus on the football team when we hit the head. Selfish bastids…
I love the way the court system keeps pretending Harvey Updyke gives a shit about repaying his almost $800,000 in restitution fees. It’s so cute!
According to Dennis Dodd, Tommy Tuberville is thinking about running for governor of Alabama.
Maybe he could urge passage of a law requiring the state to recognize Auburn’s 2004 national championship.
If you were serious about that, random Alabama legislator, you’d be aiming your bill at state universities, too. Those markets ain’t gonna un-free themselves, you know.
