    And who here is surprised that John Cooper didn't have the foresight to start Austin Moherman in 1998?

    Sorry, 21 years and it's still too soon.

    I hate it when facts get in the way of a good line.

    Way too soon. That loss crushed me for 4 years. I was a broken man until after double overtime in 2002 in the desert.

    I had been broken from the Rose Bowl after the 1975 season, so 2002 was definitely not soon enough.

    1979 and Charles White also hurt pretty badly. But somehow that MSU loss was so hard to take.

    I like Saban more than most here, I felt this was actually a measured and appropriate response.

    Alabama’s use of Apple Watches during coronavirus pandemic under scrutiny


    The NCAA recently made a decision to allow strength and conditioning coaches to distribute workouts to players while they are isolated away from their respective programs. But Alabama’s use of Apple watches to monitor the players is drawing some eyes from around the SEC and beyond with everyone trying to figure out whether or not Alabama is in violation of any NCAA rules.

    According to a report from Mark Schlabach of ESPN, the SEC is in the process of checking in on the use of the smartwatches at Alabama. The Athletic reports Alabama has been in constant communication with the SEC regarding the manner, according to a statement shared by a university spokesperson;

    “The SEC is aware that Alabama provided Apple Watches to some of our student-athletes,” Alabama senior associate AD for compliance Matt Self said in a statement. “We are in constant communication with the SEC discussing the appropriate manner in which to utilize these and any other resources to provide for the health and well-being of our student-athletes during this crisis.”

    Alabama set players up with the smartwatches as part of the program setup by strength and conditioning coaches David Ballou and Matt Rhea. The watches include workouts and apps to help players stay in as best in shape as possible during these unique times in wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The NCAA recently allowed for such workouts to be distributed to players with the stipulation that coaches were not permitted to monitor those workouts. The only member of Alabama’s staff reportedly observing the information from the watches has been Alabama’s director of sports medicine, Jeff Allen.

    So why all the fuss about Alabama’s smartwatches? It seems to be a lack of uniformity in interpreting the NCAA regulations.

    1. This is stupid.
    2. My ass only the Dr is monitoring them.
    3. Dont wonder if its illegal, just implemet it and point out that your competitors were all doing it... no advantage.
    4. Employers have been handing out fitbits for a decade or so now. This is neither cutting edge tech nor controversial... NCAA is just stupid.
