Sorry, but that article was complete garbage and reeks of lazy journalism. All it does is quote DeMarcus Walker's twitter account and then asks a bunch of open-ended questions. I'm sorry, but any high schooler writing a blog in his mom's basement could accomplish that.
The article never makes any mention of even trying to contact DeMarcus Walker for further confirmation or explanation. Nor do they try to contact the NCAA Clearinghouse, representatives from FSU, Walker's high school coach or an administrative assistant from his high school (one whom would be involved with his transcripts). Not even Walker's parents or other relatives/ friends were contacted. Basically anyone who could/would be able to shed light on the situation, the writer of this article didn't feel the need to contact them in order to write this "story". Investigative journalism 101 fail.
Very auburnesque. FSU seems a little jealous of us.
It's really simple. Did he or didn't he? If we turned him in so be it. I'm glad we play like men. There was a time when we would curl up and take it. Not now. This is why they hate us.
It's not pure rumor that Alabama turned it in. Didn't Walker tweet those words? Was his tweet a rumor?
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
It's not clear whether Walker knows for a fact that Alabama turned him in, or he's just assuming they did, or someone else told him they did? That could all be cleared up by actually interviewing Walker himself, instead of just stirring the pot for attention like that article did.
Every time Im in Tuscaloosa, Im reminded of what a gorgeous campus Alabama has. It truly looks like a postcard Chris Low
I live in Tallahassee and the sense I get from the majority of the serious FSU fans nowadays is that they dislike us and it seems to be based more on jealousy than anything else. They also come across a little arrogant and entitled (based on success their program had now several years ago I guess). Thinking they are back to a top 5 program and failing like they have in an easy conference the past couple of years probably doesn't help their self esteem either.
It's changed over the past couple of seasons as most FSU fans until then seemed to be decently cool and even complementary towards the Bama program.
I live in NW Florida with a lot of FSU fans. They are still trying to live in the "glory days" and yes you are correct, they absolutely feel entitled. What I hear now is Jimbo (because he has worked for Saban) is the next Saban.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
I don't see a problem here. We play by the rules and if others don't they will suffer. Pretty simple.
My daughter took an on line class in high school her junior or senior year. Before she took it I got a letter in the mail that said if she was going to college to play NCAA sports that the class would or could cause problems with the clearing house. I would have to think this applies to several on-line classes in high school as they can be nothing more than clicking through the tabs and taking easy examinations after the sections/chapters.
