→ Pat Forde on Nick Saban’s response to the recent Allegations against Bama

Pat Forde , writing at Yahoo:

He took three questions, each of them about the Yahoo Sports reports that star offensive tackle D.J. Fluker allegedly accepted thousands of dollars during his Alabama career from a runner and former Crimson Tide player Luther Davis. Each answer became edgier and angrier, until the game's foremost control freak sensed he couldn't control this media interlude and stormed off five minutes into his post-practice press conference.

The fallout could be this, if the NCAA can find merit to the allegations: vacating of the 2012 national championship. And if potential problems arise from a second Yahoo Sports story indicating agent/runner interactions with safety Mark Barron during the 2011 season, it's conceivable that back-to-back could be gone-to-gone.

I am definitely not a fan of Saban, but I want someone to beat him. I do not want his downfall to be some lame NCAA scandal.
