Dangit, my boys lost in week 4 :mad:

Well, the biggest week 5 story so far might be...

http://alabama.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1557109

5:01 p.m. UPDATE: University of Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Corey Harris has been placed on administrative leave for providing impermissible benefits to suspended football safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, TideSports.com has learned.

UA head coach Nick Saban announced Wednesday that Clinton-Dix has been indefinitely suspended for violation of team rules, but he did not specify the nature of the violation.

In looking into the matter, the UA compliance office also discovered that Harris had a connection to a representative of a sports agent. UA's internal investigation has found no indication that Clinton-Dix has had contact with any agent or agent representative. Efforts to reach Harris were unsuccessful.

Harris made a short-term loan to Clinton-Dix in an amount less than $500, after Clinton-Dix's car was broken into on the night of June 25 or the morning of June 26. TideSports.com has obtained the police report filed by Clinton-Dix after the break-in, detailing the theft of money, an iPad, a backpack and sandals - both embroidered with Clinton-Dix's jersey number (No. 6) - stereo speaker sub-woofers, miscellaneous shirts and Nike Air Jordan shoes.

The police report states that Clinton-Dix's black and gray 2012 Dodge Charger was parked at his residence on the 4500 block of East 18th Avenue. Clinton-Dix is not identified by name on the police report due to Tuscaloosa Police Department policy not to list victims of crimes on such reports.

Clinton-Dix has provided bank records to UA athletic compliance department representatives that show a withdrawal in the amount he said he repaid to Harris, TideSports.com has learned.

Harris' annual salary is $43,260.

The situation could be a violation of NCAA Bylaw 16.11.2.2, which states that "an institutional employee or representative of the institution's athletics interests may not provide a student-athlete with extra benefits or services, including, but not limited to ... a loan of money."

I doubt if anything comes of it, but if it does, this would be huge. But, it's really a bad rule. If the kid is hungry, is the coach not supposed to help him eat?? :handicap:

It's definitely a badly written rule.


If this is indeed what happened and he had to miss a game because of it, it's just a shame. My question is though, how did the compliance/ncaa department find out about it???

I never understood how small occurrences like this are found out? It seems to me like if i'm the coach and I saw what happened to Clinton-Dix, i'd try to help him too. The guy was robbed so he helped him out with probably a couple hundred dollars or so. And then add the fact that the coach only makes $43K? Its more of a reason to just look and say "no wrongdoing here, let's keep it moving..."


BUT this is the same NCAA that STILL hasnt rendered a judgement on Miami THREE YEARS after they found compliance inadequacies. :thumbsdown:

Back to football...



Enter Tyler Murphy.


The Gators looked like a team dead in the water when they lost both Jeff Driskel AND DT Dominique Easley. Arguable the two biggest components on the offense and the defense. However, the Gators had a guy sitting over there on the bench who nobody even knew about. Tyler Murphy. I a Gator fan through and through, but one thing I can say is that outside of Chris Leak, you wont see a black QB at UF get any playing time. See Cam Newton and Jecoby Brissett.

They were forced to play Murphy two weeks ago when Driksel went out with a season-ending leg injury. They had no other place to go but to Murphy. Jecoby Brissett was snubbed last year as they chose Driskel to be the QB. He unfortunately transferred to NC State. Enter Tyler Murphy. The kid has single handed SAVED what was otherwise the worst offense in the SEC. Initially I thought Driskel was pretty good and could grow in to the position. He just didnt he regressed, couldnt read defenses, couldnt smell sack coming from a mile away. He was the reason we lost the Miami game. He threw 3 god-awful INT's. Now the verict is still out on Murphy but thing that is already apparent, he's made the offense more fluid. They actually look like a decent offense out there. Last year and up until Driskel got hurt, the offense was inexplicably bad.

I'm happy that Tyler Murphy is now the QB for the gators. He surely makes us a contender for the SEC again. We lost Easley on defense but Florida still has the top ranked defense in the nation. If Tyler Murphy can come in and manage the game the defense is good enough to help us win some games.

I agree, Murphy is 10 times better than Driskel. Muschamp should be fired for not playing him earlier :lol:

Florida has (well they definitely did before Easley got hurt, not sure about now) the best defense in the SEC. If Florida's offense would come anywhere close to matching the defense, they'd run the table.

Well...see ya Saturday in Baton Rouge!! :wave:

Yeah i'm worried about Saturdays game at LSU. The last few times we've been there it got real ugly for us. In 2011, we lost 41-10 when John Brantley got hurt and Driskel and Brissett took turns bending over for Honey Badger and the LSU's defense :lol:..

Of course, LSU's defense isnt as near as good as it was two or even three years ago, but Baton Rouge?...death valley?...lol, pretty much says it all. Murphy hasn't played a snap in front of a crowd like he'll see saturday and probably wont see another like for the rest of the year. One things for certain, we'll know how good UF's offense (read: Tyler Murphy) AND defense is after Saturday. If we can move the ball against LSU while keeping there offense in check we'll be alright. We've got a good shot to win it but it all comes down to Murphy and how well he can continue to play.

That's an understatement!!! We've looked downright pitiful on defense at times. During the Miss. State game, they flashed on the screen all the LSU defensive players in the NFL who would have still had eligibility this year:

Tyrann Mathieu
Eric Reid
Tharold Simon
Kevin Minter
Bennie Logan
Barkevious Mingo
Sam Montgomery
Michael Brockers

THAT defense with THIS offense?? :mad:

:cry:
