    This report is completely unfounded and bogus. The University needs to take the NCAA to court over this if they don't drop the probation immediately. This is the easiest slam dunk for a defense attorney in the history of law... there ARE NO textbooks in the state of Alabama. :tiphat:

    So the athletes were using their scholarship to get textbooks for other students? OK, first of all, textbooks are a scam anyway. They cost way too damn much and they reissue new versions every other freakin' semester, when nothing's changed. Second, we all know that the athletes aren't using them anyway, so at least someone's getting some use!

    I keep asking the same question. Why? Why do they continue to get off?
