The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
I've come to the conclusion that half the people here think a grayshirt means no scholarship and that Saban did totally out of nowhere. It's not like he sustained a serious injury that would have prevented him from playing or anything.
It's hilarious how people compare it to things like starting a job and being told to wait. I'm sure if you were physically unable to perform your new job your employer would gladly pay you for several months of leave first. Give me a break.
Where was the outrage when Saban reportedly turned players away because we had no room? We had made a scholarship offer to them and reneged. But asking the kid to wait a few months when he wouldn't have played anyway? Unacceptable!
What a joke. The circumstances changed, the offer changed. That's how the world works. We didn't let him practice all summer and then tell him to wait like Miles. We didn't even wait until after he signed. After he got injured, the staff offered him a grayshirt. They could have just dropped him. He was given a chance to explore alternative offers, including Auburn, his original commitment. He eventually chose Arkansas.
How many high school athletes would kill just to WALK ON at Alabama? This guy was offered a scholarship. All he had to do was let his injury heal. Instead, he's going to redshirt at Arkansas. That was the decision he made. The kid needs to grow up and so do a lot of posters here. When circumstances change, offers change. It's not like we signed him and kicked him to the curb.
