Dareus reportedly declared ineligible

HOOVER, Ala. -- You want surreal?

As Nick Saban was on the podium here at the SEC media days railing against agents, his star defensive lineman Marcel Dareus was declared ineligble. The Tuscaloosa News reported the news literally while Saban was in the process of calling agents "pimps."

I asked Saban as he came off the podium if the report was true, he got a quizzical look on his face and said, "That's not true." We'll know more as time goes on. The News cited an anonymous source. If Saban didn't know and if the report is true he is going to be a lot madder than he was Wednesday on the podium.

Typically in these cases the player is declared ineligible by the school. The school then works through the NCAA to reinstate him. Don't think that Dareus is necessarily done for the season.

Dareus reportedly declared ineligible

Over a 4 year period, not each year.

Dareus reportedly declared ineligible

I thought there was a scholarship limit in D-1, like 80-85?  If what you say is true, how does he get rid of players to reach the limit?

Hypocrite Saban

Saban is as big of a pimp as these agents. Signing 100+ players over a 4 year period is pimping
