Saban got Tua's parents jobs how come he's not under a clould?
Mark Dantonio gets hit with a lawsuit alleging that he got a booster to get a job for a player's parents.

Now we are to believe that Saban had nothing to do with Tua's parents affording to move so far and get a pretty good job in Alabama.

selling a house in Hawaii and moving to Alabama. There are some pretty elementary economics at play here.

You know what they do for work? The Alabama obsession is amazing

His family could sell a hut in Hawaii and buy a 3000sqft home in Alabaster.


I know the economy sucks in Lousiana, but its pretty easy to get a job almost every where else in the country.

the cost of living in Hawaii is far greater than that of Alabama

they almost assuredly saved money by moving

I hear they were both working at his Mercedes dealership in Birmingham.

You might be onto something.

You think LSU isn’t doing the same thing?

Is there credible proof of this that you could share?

If they did move and found any job in Alabama I would guess most of the people doing the hiring would be Bama grads.
No way you can prove anything if that person is actually qualified for the job they have.

Now if it's a sham job, where they don't actually have to go to work then you might be on to something.

Most families don't uproot their life and follow their kid to whatever college they attend. With a ton of family still in Hawaii and with two kids at same school it probably makes sense for them to come to Alabama and they can return to Hawaii at anytime to see family. Now it won't matter with Tua getting the first round contract.

I remember it being stated as facts that Les got Patrick Peterson and Jarvis Landry's moms jobs.

Not really. Alabama cheats on an unprecedented level. it’s horse shite that they get away with it & it makes things an uneven playing field in terms of getting players. So frick off

i never get why fans get so defensive of people saying they cheat.
Yea we cheat, and we don't get caught because we own the NCAA.

That's pretty fricking badass IMO

More like it's an open secret that every program cheats. The one's that get popped with a violation are the one's that piss off the NCAA, or are small time to the point that the cheating doesn't justify the revenue.

Ralph is a legit communist. Economics is not exactly his strong suit.

I mean if someone came at me “the gamecocks are big cheaters”
“Yea so?”

It doesn’t get me mad at all. If anything I wish we did more of it to help us win
I’d gladly take a title followed by many seasons of shite (like we are now so no difference)

Jonah Williams' Dad paid for the move, not Saban or UA.
