For years all these major programs pay for players under the table.
This has been going on for decades, but now that it is legal these white coaches are losing their minds because they no longer have control over the players. Let’s be honest if you want to win a national championship you probably want to go to Alabama, but if your mom and your sister need help today and Texas A&M gets you a NIL deal worth $500k, winning that ring is not as important.
You can make it to the NFL regardless of where you play if you are good enough. Jimbo Fisher was not pleased with Nick Saban saying that A&M had to pay all his recruits to get them to come to the school.
Jimbo Fisher delivered a fiery rebuttal to Alabama coach Nick Saban’s comments from Wednesday night that Texas A&M “bought every player” in its vaunted 2022 recruiting class, calling Saban’s comments “despicable” numerous times in a quickly assembled 9½-minute news conference.
Fisher, who was visibly angry, said there was no truth to Saban’s accusations.
“We never bought anybody,” the Texas A&M coach said. “No rules are broken. Nothing was done wrong. It’s a shame that you’ve got to sit here and defend 17-year-old kids and families and Texas A&M. Because we do things right. We’re always going to do things right. We’re always going to be here. We’re doing a heck of a job.”
Fisher seethed, obviously taking Saban’s comments personally. And while he didn’t name Saban, Fisher’s response was similarly personal.
“It’s despicable that a reputable head coach can come out and say this when he doesn’t get his way,” Fisher said. “The narcissist in him doesn’t allow those things to happen. It’s ridiculous when he’s not on top.”
“Some people think they’re God,” Fisher said. “Go dig into how God did his deal. You may find out … a lot of things you don’t want to know. We build him up to be the czar of football. Go dig into his past, or anybody’s that’s ever coached with him. You can find out anything you want to find out, what he does and how he does it. It’s despicable.”
He said Saban had called him, but he hasn’t answered.
“Not going to. We’re done,”
“You can call me anything you want to call me. You can’t call me a cheat. I don’t cheat and I don’t lie. I learned that when I was a kid. If you did, your old man slapped you upside the head. Maybe somebody should have slapped him.”
Fisher went on to say that people need to really look into Saban’s past and they will find a lot of things he has tried to keep hiding.
