I knew it! Need to investigate the other alabama players who are driving 50k worth Escalades and Chargers (Julio, Dre, Ingram).

Doesn't matter. Who here doesn't think Reggie Bush won a Heisman?

Sorry, but, Alabama will not be forfeiting anything.

Let's be honest, every major college team gives players "incentives" to join their team. They also fix grades and overlook drug tests so their players can play. College is a business and you do whatever it takes to make money.

Not likely to happen unless either of these two things are proven - 1) more players are uncovered as having received improper benefits on the team thus signaling a systemic issue, or 2) the NCAA determines that coaches were involved in facilitating these improper benefits. If neither of those two are an issue, then not much will happen. I can guarantee you Alabama will institute their own corrective actions, per say, and the NCAA wil buy off on them. Nick drives a hard ship and the NCAA knows he doesn't play around and isn't dirty.

Like someone above mentioned, all teams have some of this going on to one extent or the other. The SEC has had a target on its back for years because of the dominance in college football and I don't see that going away anytime soon. I really hate that DJ made this decision that could hurt his alma mater, but at the same time, none of know what these kids deal with. I personally know of DJ's situation growing up and what that young man endured which leads me to believe things hadn't gotten any better (financially) for mom and he did what he thought he needed to do. Not that it's right, because it certainly isn't (it's the rules), but if you are the only viable option to provide for your family, you do what you have to do. You can argue that point until you're blue in the face, but when it's between eating and not eating, you're going to do what you have to do.

Haters are gonna hate, especially because this is currently happening to the most dominate football team in the country and everyone is sick of seeing/hearing about them. But if you are being realistic and ponder the thought detailed above, you know exactly how you would choose. That is unless you are a selfish prick who cares only about yourself.
