Next up in the NCAA violation train: Alabama, other SEC schools
Former Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker is at the center of the investigation, which allegedly involves money being passed from boosters to agents to Luther Davis to the players.
Davis is a former Alabama defensive end.
Fluker was the 11th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and now plays for the San Diego Chargers. If he is ruled to have been ineligible, it could theoretically wipe out dozens of Alabama wins and potentially multiple National Championships.
At this point, I'm honestly sick of hearing about stories like this. I don't see it as a scandal, I don't even see it as a problem at all. I don't mind if these guys can somehow gain a few bucks for their (extremely marketable) skills, and I really just want to see quality football played. On the field.
No matter what happens here, we will all know that Alabama has been one of the best college football teams of all time over the past few years, and their roster is chock full of future NFL stalwarts.
Nothing can change that, and nothing can change the fact that we all saw them wipe the floor with an obviously inferior Notre Dame team in last year's BCS championship game.
Let these kids play football, stop getting caught up in things that don't matter, and let's work on enjoying the game for what it is.
