Details begin to emerge; relief around Tuscaloosa

Tuscaloosa News indicates no football scholarship losses

Rivals.com Alabama site Bama Online reports the University of Alabama Crimson Tide will be forced to vacate forfeit wins.

The report cites an anonymous source, and says the Tide’s record for the 2007 season will stand at 1-12. Which raises a question, why would the Tennessee win be vacated because the five players were suspended for that game? The link to the BamaOnline report requires a subscription.

The Tuscaloosa News reports, “at least 10 football wins from the 2006 and ’07 seasons” will be vacated. Of more interest is this sentence: “The sources did not indicate that Alabama will lose any football scholarships.”
