They paid the first $1 million dollar player. He is pissed as other schools are catching up and beating him at his own game. You can not defend him in this.I don't think he's better. I just think his views on NIL are spot on. However, he's clearly talking out both sides of his mouth because I'm sure they're paying their players too.
No Saban is just salty it’s opened up across the board now.
Also keep in mind there are a lot of people/season tix holders/boosters who sat on the sidelines for a lot of schools. Now guys are stepping up saying “how can I help?”Exactly.
Nobody can compete with Bama/Saban on the recruiting trail. National Championships, NFL players blah blah blah....
However, money is green all across the country.
NIL is an equalizer because it gives less "prestigious" schools the same exact recruiting opportunity as Bama.
