Nick Saban Claims Rival Program "Bought Every Player"

Nick Saban will welcome another strong recruiting class to Tuscaloosa this fall. Per 247Sports, Alabama has this year's second-best incoming freshman class behind Texas A&M.

Speaking at a countdown event for the World Games in Birmingham, per AL.com's Mike Rodak the Crimson Tide head coach says the Aggies achieved that feat because they "bought every player."

On the other hand, Saban claimed Alabama's players made over $3 million in NIL revenue "the right way." Yet he's not sure how much longer he can operate that way under the current system.

"We were second in recruiting last year. A&M was first," Saban said. "A&M bought every player on their team. Made a deal for name, image and likeness. We didn’t buy one player. But I don’t know if we’re going to be able to sustain that in the future because more and more people are doing it."

In February, Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher called rumors of the school using deep-pocketed booster funds "garbage."

"To me it’s insulting to the players that we recruited that that’s why they would come here,” Fisher told reporters, per Ralph D. Russo of the Associated Press. "You ever been to a game here? You ever come to school here and see the education? You ever talk about the 12th Man and the Aggie network when you’re done? There ain’t a better university in this country."

BTW, Nick Saban makes $9.5 million per year.
To coach football.

I googled "biggest companies in Alabama". The top one was Emcompass Health. They employ over 40,000 people. Emcompass Health's CEO is Mark J Tarr. He makes $6.9 million.

Not only could Saban be paying players out of his own pocket. He probably should. He's stealing enough as it is.

is this a cryptic warning from Saban that he can bring out the bag men and go get players the way others doing it

Bama don't have TA&M money breh.

TXAM endowment is 18 billion.
Bama is at 820 million.

That endowment money coming from dudes with oil money. To try and compete with that is a losing battle. Bama boosters gotta get their bread up :yeshrug:
