Imagine that you have broken a major team rule/policy and your name and photo are plastered all over the papers. You're now sitting in CNS's office waiting for him to arrive for a little "discussion". What would you do/say?
Personally, I think there would be a little puddle underneath my chair.
Take it over a felony and jail time
the reality is these guys have much bigger worries that CNS.
I honestly wouldn't be suprised if a couple of them don't take that meeting. I mean its not in their legal interest to discuss what happened...
If you've got the stones to rob and beat fellow students to a pulp, I doubt you have the common sense to be afraid of an intimidating football coach like CNS. Bad apples like these guys don't fear discussions from football coaches.
What chair??? This is a knees only meeting.
I would simply get in my car and drive home! No need for discussion, "time to piss on the fire and call in th dogs!"
Couldn't agree more. Those of us who try to fathom in our heads what we would be doing or thinking at a moment like that are not in line with the mindset it takes for one to actually commit a crime like this.
For the average Joe, like me. I think it'd be like facing your Dad, someone you love and respect and in turn he loves and respects you. Honestly, I think Saban would be pretty calm. The disappointment would be obvious and the quieter he is, the more it would hurt.
Back to the main point though.... these guys obviously have no respect for Saban, their teammates, their fellow students, families or themselves to commit an act like this. So, not sure that they even care. This isn't just an honest mistake that you can say I'm sorry and move on.
I realize we all make mistakes and yes these guys should be forgiven. But they will be punished and it's just unfortunate that they have pissed away an opportunity that millions would do almost anything for. Not to mention some great God-given athletic talent that will likely be wasted.
I just hope these guys get their head on straight and can enroll at a D2 school and get their education and never look back. Too many wasted lives in this world today.
Three of these guys need to worry about a lot more what the prosecutor is going to say because if he/she goes after a conviction they're all looking at jail time.

If I was saban I wouldn't say a damn thing to them other than you are off the team have a nice life.
Posted this in another thread, which has devolved into name calling. Given the crimes committed, the evidence of it, and the apparent admission, the prosecutor may readily charge them for a Class B felony.
Via 13A-5-6 of the Code of Alabama, mandatory punishment is:
"(2) For a Class B felony, not more than 20 years or less than 2 years."
If convicted of a Class B felony (Assault 1, Theft 1, Robbery all apply here), they face mandatory jail time under Alabama law. There is indeed some confusion on if a gun was present, which would significantly up the sentence, again mandated under law. CNS is the least of their worries right now.
I LOOK BETTER IN CRIMSON!
Whatever he said for me to do/say.
