I guess unethical may be the incorrect term. Just seems like it needs to be regulated in some fashion to allow for an even recruiting playing field. Seems sketchy, to me, for a coach like Saban, simply because he is blessed to have boosters that are willing to pump his players up with millions of dollars through endorsements, to be able to announce that to a group of coaches who will then funnel their players to UA. How is that different from the crap Adidas pulled with funneling monies to players to sign with agents and schools to play hoops? Saban is basically doing the same thing, send your players to Alabama and I can get them millions. Maybe no unethical given the current rules, but certainly shady in my mind.\ and it continues to make the recruiting landscape uneven. Now we will start losing players because Saban can legally have some booster give them an endorsement deal. This just all reeks like dead fish to me.

When have we ever beat them for a recruit? You’re getting worked up over a recruiting battle we have not ever and will never win as long as Saban is there winning championships.

We wont win that battle, but why make an uneven playing field even more uneven? We already lose on facilities, conference affiliation, and so much more. Why make it worse. At least make it seem like we are eating from the same trough even if we really get sloppy seconds.

I’ve said it before, not much has changed.

Worrying about the optics of ODU being on the same level of Alabama seems like a waste of time, especially when they’re on a different level compared to a lot of their own conference mates (Vandy, SC, Arkansas, Mizzou).
