Alabama is using Former Student-Athletes and Former NFL Players on their Scout Team

“This is the wild, wild West at its best. There have been no specific guidelines relative to how we’re managing control of this stuff.”

How does Nick Saban talk himself out of this one? For someone who has been so vocal on the reasons that satellite camps are bad for college football, also saying ” There needs to be somebody who looks out for what’s best for the game, not the SEC or the Big Ten or Jim Harbaugh. But what’s best for the game of college football. The integrity of the game.”

So bringing back former NFL players, Blake Sims and Trent Richardson, to go against 18, 19, or 20 year olds is good for college football and the integrity of the game? I do not see how this is good for college football or for the kids.

I cannot believe that the NCAA, who micromanages everything, allows this to happen.  Especially since the NCAA denied Marcus Lattimore from being hired as an advisor on Will Muschamp’s staff, saying “The NCAA has stated that Lattimore cannot join Will Muschamp’s staff at USC due to Lattimore’s status as a former player and his presence through football camps and foundation. The NCAA considers it an unfair recruiting advantage.”

Excuse me but I am failing to see the difference here. I have an open mind and I want to know, what do you think?  Vote below and see if you can change my mind!
