that uat has an open scholly for tomlinson...
"The belief was that Dalvin Tomlinson (Henry County/McDonough, Ga.) would stay in-state. The tide may be turning in favor of Alabama.
"There's also a popular conspiracy theory that that's why Tomlinson finally was smiling last week -- that he got the green light that a scholarship spot had opened up for him (at Alabama)," Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Consistution worte. "Who knows? I do know I talked to a few Alabama commits about Tomlinson and they said 'definitely Alabama' for whatever that is worth."
The more popular theory less than a day before Tomlison signs his letter of intent is that Georgia Tech remains the frontrunner. "
It's true. Turns out there is a loop hole that allows them to exceed the signing limits.
The loop hole reads...
"If a team is able to win two national championships in a three year period while on probation, said team may recoup scholarships previously lost due to the sanctions levied in probation hearings".
No one ever thought a team on probation could win two titles, so people don't realize this rule exists. Ironically it was Bear Bryant that pulled some strings in the 70's to get that one on the books.
Now Saban benefits by being able to sign as many as 70 players in the next two years.
Wonder how Justin Taylor feels about that open scholarship.....
