We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Is this not weak sauce? Coach looks like he's doing something. Once all the publicity dies down, players are re-instated and never miss a game. Not sure why media lets coaches off the hook for this crap
What are you talking about?
I'll bite. As a general rule I would agree with you. However, no one that Saban has ever "indefinitely suspended" has ever contributed again.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Whenever I hear the term, I always think of Michael Floyd's suspension in March that was lifted just before fall practice. What a joke.
Not just Bama, it's been used a dozen times. I can think of multiple examples where a dude was "indefinitely suspended" and then never misses a snap.
Every player indefinitely suspended by saban has been kicked out. So, calm down
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
Bet you can't name one at Bama. Indefinite suspension is code word for avoiding legal action. They'll kick them off once facts are gathered.
Well yall need to shed some bodies to get that new recruiting class in lol...
Correct. Plenty of coaches have reinstated, but I've never known Saban to while at Alabama.

Unlike Urban Meyer and Storm Klein, for example.
I don't have a problem with the Indefinite Suspension by any coach. Time should be given to allow for facts to be gathered and the legal process to work before any final decision is made. This should be afforded to all people and football players are no different.
LOL, indefinite suspension is pretty much par for the course. Once a kid gets in trouble, you suspend pending outcome of case. Innocent until proven guilty. Spurrier does the same thing exactly. It has no bearing on whether the kid gets kicked off or not, it just means you are immeadiatly addressing the situation.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Coach Saban is out of town for his one vacation he takes every year. Knowing the type of coach he is he will want to sit these guys down in his office and give them a stern talk before kicking them off the team. Its not like he will let them off the hook. They are gone.
If one troll doesn't work, just flow right into another one.
I applaud your trollitude sir.
There's a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.
This is actually true. We were going to have some attrition but this makes things a little easier to manage. I know you were trying to troll but I actualyl agree that we needed some room to be made.
I was serious too...makes things easier, just thought it was funny
iirc he was booted from team, then re-instated when charges dropped. Dont recall an indefinite suspension, he was booted.
Yeah, Storm was guilty until proven innocent. Once Urbs caught wind of it he was kicked out and missed the first few weeks of fall practice. Later it was discovered it was his childs mother lying/exaggerating so she could get custody. Once the investigation was over, and the coaches reviewed it and met with him, he was allowed back on the team
Like Saint Joe having his thugs clean the stadium as punishment and miss Zero practice....
35 criminal arrests in 3 years - zero missed time
It is too easy
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- A former Penn State official charged with enforcing discipline at the school said Tuesday that Joe Paternos standards and conduct officer in 2007, confirmed that she sent a 2005 email to then-president Graham Spanier and others in which she expressed her concerns about how Penn State handled discipline cases involving football players.
Saban looks horrible for this decision at the moment... Dismiss them... if it pans out they are innocent... then re-instate them.... smh
Yes, you can turn anything a PSU poster says into a PSU joke. It's not that hard for any person over 6 years old with a brain. Most people don't need to do it though for some self-validation.
Honestly, when I hear the term I think of Michael Floyd. Nothing against ND, it's just the example that comes to my head. Nobody cares about you ruining every thread by turning them into anti-PSU threads.

It's funny because all four of them are more talented than anyone on ND's roster.
Also, what are you talking about with 0 time missed? Most of the crimes were first time offenses for underages or public intoxication.
As for the more serious crimes, NaVorro Bowman was suspended for the final regular season game of the 07 season, then the bowl game, then spring practice in 08 for his assault charge, the most highly publicized of those events.
Dan Connor (and other players) was suspended indefinitely (which ended up being three games) for making prank phone calls.
Two of the best PSU players were suspended for the crap they did. Stop spewing lies.
Saban is a Snake flat out.
If you are an elite coach, you are elite from the start. Like Meyer. who had excellent seasons at BG, Utah, and Fla.
Saban at MSU had multiple seasons barely over .500. He went 9-3 one year and got a call from Bama. Goes there then all of a sudden becomes elite.
Not so fast..............
