    So Saban was mad he said one thing and did another? I can see how that wouldn't be ironic at all.

    Saban went to the Dolphins had a meeting with the owner Huzienga and told him he wanted to go back but he'd stay if he needed him which Huzienga said he told him to go to Alabama and both of them remained friends and would meet up every year. Players like Jason Taylor said Saban was calling him asking about it too. So yeah it's not at all the same as sneaking out of an athletic department in the pitch black dark and not telling a single soul that he was leaving

    The meme of "where the fuck is Dan" comes from Saban walking into the coaches meeting room the next day and legitimately asking that, not knowing he left in the middle of the night. The fucked thing about it is he already did offensive staff interviews with him and had to redo a few with Sark afterwards. It also misled some other coaches who more or less had the nod (Lance Taylor, now ND's RB coach for one) and then it was changed up when Sark's input got brought to the table.

    well, Brock Hoffman got officially fucked today by the NCAA. I guess because he's not some crybaby QB like Tate or Fields who couldn't hack it at at their first school it's not really important that he moves to be closer with his mom who's recovering from brain cancer.

    I'm not surprised, and he absolutely helped fuck us on Tyree who is one of my favorite players in the class. It's not just Alabama alums at UGA/CU giving us a hard time on the trail.

    His father and my grandfather used to be close, and he still keeps in touch with my grandfather. He opened his first "bank account" when he was a kid at his store and they've been close since. Good coach, great recruiter, and an even better guy. I'm still upset we took Holmon Wiggins when Sark joined.

    There are over 20,000 Division I college football players. As a whole, they have crime rates that are much lower than the general population. However, when they do get in trouble (as 69 did this offseason), they get a lot of attention. For that reason we have The Fulmer Cup™.

    The Fulmer Cup is a parody award that tracks the criminal achievements of various college football programs during the offseason and declares a "winner". It is open to all Division I football programs (FBS & FCS), and points are awarded based on the level of crime (more details below). The Fulmer Cup season started the minute the FBS national title game ended on January 7 and ended the minute of the first game of Week 0 began, in this case the Colgate–Villanova game on August 24.

    Without further ado, here are your 2019 winners:

    The 14th Annual Fulmer Cup Rankings (FINAL)
    NOTE: Team rankings require a minimum of 2 player/coaches; if a team only has one their score is marked as “NR” for Not Ranked. However if anyone else on the team gets cited for so much as jaywalking, they'll qualify for the team competition and be ranked.

    Rank Program Pts Conf
    1
    Bryant 28 Northeast
    2 Georgia Southern 27 Sun Belt
    3 Nebraska 22 Big Ten
    4 New Hampshire 20 CAA
    5 Georgia 12 SEC
    6 UTEP 11 Conference USA
    7 Mississippi State 10 SEC
    8T Nicholls 7 Southland
    8T ULM 7 Sun Belt
    8T Washington State 7 Pac-12
    In Brief
    This offseason has continued last year's trend of being quieter. The total number of players receiving charges we've seen in each of the five years we've administered the Fulmer Cup are:

    Year Players Charged
    2014 111
    2015 123
    2016 116
    2017 136
    2018 67
    2018 69
    In particular, Bryant's winning score of 28 is quite low compared to past years. It's hopeful and possible that players are behaving better or that teams have better strategies around preventing these events from happening. Maybe the increased visibility of The Fulmer Cup has contributed in some small way to this.

    A few major storylines to follow this year.
    Bryant Bryant won this year's Fulmer Cup on a single event involving 4 Football players that accrued 28 points. The players were involved in an altercation that started with breaking and entering and resulted in assault, and required the university to announce a review as to whether racial bias was involved (which was not found conclusively). WR Shelton McNeal, LB Jack McNeil, and DB Zahir Williams were all charged with breaking and entering, simple assault, disorderly conduct, and conspiracy. DB Jarrett Martin was additionally charged with breaking and entering and disorderly conduct, but missed the assault and conspiracy charges. The charges together with the teamwork bonus combined for 28 points, considerably lower than the total typically required to win, but enough to take the crown for Bryant this year.

    Georgia Southern In 2nd place was Georgia Southern, just 1 point behind Bryant at 27. QB Ivan Corbin Jr., RB J.D. King, and RB Logan Wright were all booked on charges of disorderly conduct in February). Ellis T. Jones III Award winner (see below) DB Quan Griffin received the highest overall point total for a domestic altercation when home with family that resulted in 4 felony charges and 4 misdemeanors. Two of his relatives were also arrested, and his charges included battery, damage to property/criminal mischief, burglary, and residential robbery (felonies), as well as aggravated battery, a weapon offense, larceny, and obstructing justice (misdemeanors). He's still in jail after not paying a $345K bail, and pled not guilty on Saturday.

    An added twist for Georgia Southern was that on the same day Griffin was arrested, starting QB Shai Werts was also arrested. He was pulled over for speeding and failure to stop. The incident report at the time charged him with speeding as well as cocaine possession from a white residue on the hood of his car. All charges (including the speeding charge) were dropped when it turned out, as Werts had told officers, that the residue was bird poop. With no charges, he earns no Fulmer Cup points, and so Georgia Southern stays in 2nd. It's thought-provoking that something as innocuous as bird poop ended up playing a role in this year's Fulmer Cup.

    Nebraska Nebraska came in 3rd at 22 points, but earns special mention for having by far the most teammates get recognition. With 11 eligible players, Nebraska's Fulmer cup offenders could actually fill out a team. DB Antonio Butler, OL Matthew Farniok, TE Jack Stoll, and OL Boe Wilson all were cited at what sounds like a really fun party. WR Chad Alioth and LB Caleb Tannor both tried to order pizza with a stolen credit card. RB Maurice Washington, WR Wan'Dale Robinson, and DB Jeramiah Stovall were all cited for marijuana related reasons. DB Marquel Dismuke was driving with a suspended license. None of these are particularly heinous, but the continued commitment to small infractions over time is impressive.

    In typical college student fashion, two athletes tried to hand their work in late. They receive no points, but earn a special mention here. Tennessee DB Bryce Thompson was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault at 8 PM ET, just hours after the Villanova @ Colgate kickoff. Georgia DL Bill Norton racked up 3 charges for a DUI, failure to maintain lane, and MIP, at 4 AM Sunday morning, still under 24 hours after the deadline closed. These two offenses wouldn't have changed the overall winner, but would have given Tennessee their 2nd qualifying offense and moved them into 6th place, as well as moved the SEC into first place above the Sun Belt in the conference competition.

    Notable, but did not qualify for team category (only one player arrested):

    • Tennessee: 10 points

    • LSU: 8 points

    • New Mexico State: 7 points

    • Notre Dame: 7 points

    • Utah State: 7 points
    A total of 13 teams qualified for the cup with multiple players, and a total of 36 teams had at least one player receiving points.

    Sorry about Moses, Bama people. Hate that for the kid. Clemson just went through something similar when we lost our backup RB to a fate most would consider worse than death.
