great article from the Advertiser about Saban and oversigning.
Auburn did not win re cruiting on Wednesday.
He sure does, great article. especially from someone within the state of Alabama.
Good article Bama will surely send they number one pet (Finescum) after Josh Moon.
Excellent commentary. I only wish more people would understand what a jackwagon $aban is. He truly has EARNED the nickname "satan".

Excellent article. I did not realize Auburn was offering the 4 year scholarships. It is nice to see Auburn taking the lead on something that is just "the right thing".
I love Chiz's approach. The first three words that popped into my head were Commitment, Loyalty and Integrity. I speak for myself but you show and give me those three high road character traits I will give them back with every ability and capability I have. I truly believe these are strong traits which grow good men and women. To believe in me that much and give me a 4 year scholarship says volumes about my University. I'm "ALL IN" for Chiz....

Malzahn approves of NOW Boot Camp! Well...not really...but he would if he knew about it :) www.nowbootcamp.com
Great article, and maybe someone can help me with this:
How hard would it be for the NCAA to pass a rule that, at no point can you have over 85 football scholarship players? Maybe fudge factor of 1-2. Could the SEC do this?
Because at this point people can praise Saban all they want but what he's doing is ridiculous. Like he's always done, he goes right to the edge of the rules and peeks over. People used to condemn him for it. Now they praise him for it. Makes no sense at all.
That he doesn't even publicly reveal how many players he has on scholarship should initiate an inquiry.
They worked so quickly to close any Cam Newton loophole but this gaping wide open loophole that allows Alabama to reload so quickly they are doing nothing about. Must be nice to be a good ol boy team.
You grad, bro?

I applaud Mr. Moon for taking a stand and writing a truthful article. He will no doubt be drug over the coals by the Bammer loyalists that will try to defend Satan. I hope other sports writers have the guts to follow up this story and really expose this for what it is winning at all costs. I like to win as much as anyone but I am glad that our coaching staff and CGC have enough class and dignity to care about the athlete and his family first. After all these decisions will have an affect on the kids and the family for the entire lives. WDE

I hope someone will send to all the national media, si,,espn, cbs sporting news. I am not very computer savy or I would do it
Lil Nick doesn't just peek over, he blows through the rules that were made for the rest of us. He distances himself from those who are the actual rule-breakers, and then works the system as business that includes actual breaking of the integrity of the rules on multiple levels. What happened yesterday with Philon is certainly breaking the integrity of the NCAA rules.
Loved this part of the article: He's skirted recruiting rules, danced around scholarship limitations and been surrounded by more career ending injuries to third-string players than any coach in the history of organized athletics.
However, if those like Herbie at BSPN want to ride a high horse about the circus of SD, then they should look at themselves first, and how they promote these types of coaches as "great coaches" all the time when--even when it's clear they don't care about the kids, the people they work with or even the game itself. They are partly responsible for these unfortunate scenarios as much as the tyrant.
the Big Ten already does this, so it is easily doable.
This should have been screamed from the rooftops as a clear difference between Auburn and the rest of the football factories. Missed opportunity this year, I hope we can publicize this for the next recruiting cycle.
The Scots agree with the Irish. Well Done CGC and JJ.
Scot by blood, Southerner by Birth, Auburn Tiger by choice - War Eagle!
Dyin' ain't much of a living, boy - you know who
Then I'm forced to believe this loophole is left wide open for Alabama to exploit.
This is for the Auburn Family and everyone who played here before we did. I love ya'll, War Eagle!' Nosa Equae 10/19/13 Kyle Field Texas A&M
Hope Mr. Moon doesn't have any stairs to "fall up" at his residence. Good read wish more media outlets would get this message out vs. the evil sec forced saban to do it.
It does seem as if the tide is slowly beginning to turn against lil' nick (no pun intended). More and more outlets are beginning to push stories on his "win at any and all costs" strategy regardless of the damage it does to these young men that buy into his crap. If this is what it takes to win, then I want no part of it. Many thanks to Coach Chiz and crew for doing things the right way, the Auburn way.

Your outside source.
A video of that kids ceremony should be shown to every 2013 Crimson Teabag commitment.
Newton's Law: A Newton in motion will remain in motion, unless acted upon by an endzone.
This will pay off in a big way in years to come. Thanks to our coaches for taking the high road.
It's Great to be an Auburn Tiger!!!
