Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban has a reputation for oversigning. Does he go too far?
According to the Wall Street Journal: “I’m still kind of bitter,” said former Alabama linebacker Chuck Kirschman, who took a medical scholarship last year. Mr. Kirschman said Mr. Saban encouraged him to accept the scholarship because of a back problem that he believes he could have played through. “It’s a business,” Mr. Kirschman said. “College football is all about politics. And this is a loophole in the system.”
The report provides players who feel they were pushed to take a medical scholarship, and also quotes a player who said he was not pressured.
