“Hi, Nick Saban here for Roll Tide Motors in Tuscaloosa where we’re celebrating 10 years of championship pricing and an elite, unmatched automotive selection. No haggle, no hassle. Drive away for zero dollars down with your Alabama commitment today. But don’t take my word for it, listen to our long list of satisfied customers.”
I touched on this during our sports podcast Back Door Cover earlier today. Alabama has such blatant disregard for violations that you can’t help but respect it. They’re hiding right in plain sight, screaming “suck it” to the rest of the country, and daring the NCAA to do something about it.

There’s zero chance the books for that place are on the up and up. Cars go in and out of that lot like an inner city chop shop. But hey, that’s just the modern day recruiting game. Bama figured out how to work the system and you can’t do anything but tip your cap to little Nicky and company..
