Julio Jones's roomate at bama
Yesterday a buddy of mine, who is very close to college football (not gonna say how or who he is just out of respect to him), started explainging to me about how Alabama legally pays their players. According to him, when Julio arrived in t town he was roomed up with a with a walk on from Birmingham. But get this, the "walk on" didn't even start for his high school and his dad just so happened to be a bammer booster. So now when ever Julio needed money his roomate would just go to the ATM and pull out any amount he wanted. If Julio needed a new shirt he would just use his roomates credit card. If Julio needed to go somewhere he could just drive one of his roomates cars. And so on. Even if the NCAA knew about this nothing would happen cause , even giving him money, it's a teamate helping out another teamate. Bama has perfected cheating. Bear Bryant was probably one of the biggest cheaters of all time. Its no coincidence that 7 out of 8 of Bear Bryant's assistant coaches who became head coaches wound up leading their respective schools to probation for paying players.
The kid was Alex Baker from Spain park and he did live with julio his freshman year until saban forced him to quit because he couldn't stay out of the training room.
Cash on the dresser is the way it was explained on here several years ago. Also, he was known to drive someone's SUV down at the beach (Dolphin Island iirc). He always paid cash for everything back then. Once the word got out on the message boards, they changed things up and started funneling money through his grandmother for larger purchases.
my understanding is the roommates dad is connected to the orangebeach fishing trip and the guys made regular visits to the orange beach condoDefinitely lived with Alex Baker. Dated a girl that hung out with him all the time and Julio was never far away from him. If I remember right, Baker's dad had some type of ownership in The Wharf down in Orange Beach. Guess it was 2 years ago, but Baker took Julio, Star Jackson, and Robert Lester down to OB for Spring Break, and they stayed at a condo at the Wharf, got free booze, and of course anything they wanted was already paid for. Afterwards, the girl posted pics from the trip on facebook, and within 24 hours, she got an e-mail from the compliance department at bama telling her to remove the pictures.
Baker lost prob 1 billion on the Wharf! I know a little about what you are speaking of, and I don't thunk it's very far off base! Make no Mistake, Turds are very skilled at what they do, the depths at which they will toil go much, much deeper than this! They are truly pioneers in the art of cheating in Football, and yes, they learned from the Master himself! The reason they are so pissed about our Natty is, How in the world did we Con the Con?
I don't know about the validity of this, but I do know that the NCAA wouldhave a problem with it. Several years back the NCAA made a guy move out of Matt Leinarts apartment because he wasn't paying half the rent. The apartment was about 1700 a month, but Leinarts dad has money and was paying for the majority of rent. The NCAA said that the teammate needed to pay half or move out. If he was getting a "deal", it was extra benefits, even if from a teammate.
Newsflash: Bama cheats.

Strive for perfection in everything we do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, create it.
