Perhaps, but that was also before Eddie Williams' future was in jeopardy.
Now, it looks like we'll have just one scholarship safety in the freshman/sophomore classes (Landon Collins) and one walk-on (Jai Miller) who is pretty much a wild card.
There may be some on the team who’s parents had paid the “Pac Money.” (I think that is the name) The money you can pay as a parent when your child is born, so that college is paid for as long as as the child attends a state school. You pay every month for a certain number of years.
This could be the situation for some. Why not use this if you have paid for it?
Also, U of A if not that expensive. There are probably huge Bama fans who are parents of players, who seriously would pay their child’s way, so that the team can give a scholarship to someone who truly needs it.
It is nice to give up something that helps someone else. There are people in this world who truly believe this, and live it.

As Mr. Freud might speculate...maybe these guys wanted to be "kicked-off" the team rather than just leave and be called "quitters"...dumb way to go but just maybe...they were tired of playing ball...probably a ridiculous hypothesis but the mind works in strange and mysterious ways sometimes. There really is no rational explanation for this (maybe drugged/boozed out is another answer). How in the world could they ever do this and not think they would get caught and booted from the team. Too bad, what a tragic waste of 4 men's lives.

Yeah, I'm gonna go with "ridiculous hypothesis" on that one.
