  • OT: Alabama's hardline response to the NCAA probe

    It is very interesting that Alabama is taking a hardline view that they didn't commit any NCAA violations and because of that, still picking up top 100 recruits. Part of this is also because the media is taking everything Alabama says at face value as well.

    "The list also includes Alabama, where a review led to the resignation of basketball administrator Kobie Baker but unearthed no NCAA violations, according to school officials."

    "Following yesterday's reports from New York regarding a Federal investigation of intercollegiate athletics, The University of Alabama Department of Athletics immediately initiated an internal review of our men's basketball operations," Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne said in a statement. "As a result, we have accepted the resignation effective today of Kobie Baker, a men's basketball administrator. Our review has not identified any NCAA or SEC rules violations nor the involvement of any other coach or staff member. We have notified both of the governing bodies of the actions we have taken. As always, we will continue to be proactive in our compliance efforts.

    So what is Kobie Baker (Alabama's associate athletic director) accused of doing - basically the exact same thing as Bland, except worse.

    Alabama Staffer is paid 5k directly to steer player. Michels (who is similar to Dawkins in this case) is paid 10k to give to Alabama Staffer.

    Then Alabama Staffer, Michel, CW-1 and Alabama's star basketball recruit's father then all meet at an Atlanta restaurant where $10,000 is potentially given to the staffer to give to the players father. At least in the USC case, Bland isn't present when these these meetings take place.

    The details of the exchange can be found on page 31 - https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr...99001/download.
