John at MrSEC You used an NCAA basketball rule (written to keep the AAU riffraff out of the locker room) to try and cast an unfavorable light on the Alabama football program. You got caught. Looks like egg to me.
And I'm actually tucked into my Bama footie pajamas - not tucked behind a fake name. My name is Dawn. Nice to meet you.

Doesn't it get old having egg on your face?
John at MrSEC And GCBF is not anonymous to me. I know him and have great respect for how hard he works to accurately report on everything - not just Alabama's sports programs. @GulfCoastTider

John at MrSEC Mr. Ward is intentionally misleading readers. The following is Justin Taylor's complete answer to the question, "How did Nick Saban explain it to you?"
“Coach Saban said he wished he would’ve been able to tell me this in August instead of now. He said the only reason he can’t sign me is because he can’t sign 26 people. They can only sign 25 people. He said he was going to sign me with the next class. BUT HE ALSO SAID HE WOULD SIGN A PIECE OF PAPER TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE KEEPING THEIR WORD – THEY ARE GOING TO SIGN IT AND THEY WANT ME TO SIGN IT TO MAKE SURE I KNOW I STILL HAVE MY SCHOLARSHIP.” (CAPS are to illustrate Taylor's comments that were left out - not because I am keyboard yelling.)
Now tell me again how Nick Saban is "...no longer willing to honor the scholarship," to Taylor. Saban is willing to honor it, just not with the 2012 class. Perhaps it is you who should pay closer attention to what you read. For me, Mr. Ward's opinion piece did not get any better with the third, fourth or fifth reading.
John at MrSEC I never said anyone hated Alabama. And if Mr. Ward understands the new signing rules well enough to have an informed (that word is very important) opinion, great! But his opinion is not informed. Instead of fabricating stories of my blatant Bama homerism, how about we discuss the new signing rules and how they worked in Taylor's case?
And perhaps I should have used the word foolish instead of fool, yet the fact remains that the new signing rules are not understood by Mr. Ward, as evidenced by this article.
John at MrSEC Then perhaps, Mr. Pennington, you should pass some of your reporting expertise onto Mr. Ward. He clearly does not understand what the new signing rules were designed to accomplish, nor does he seem to understand how they worked in Taylor's case.
As far as Mr. Ward, the earlier statement you made (which I can no longer seem to find), "Josh Ward hosts a daily, three-hour radio show in Knoxville, Tennessee," explains a lot. The fact that I can no longer find that comment explains a lot more.
MiloMoon Exactly! That is what the new signing rules were designed to accomplish. Unfortunately, too few people understand that.
mb6783 I would probably be willing to take you seriously did your post not look like it was written by a kindergartener with no concept of punctuation, spelling and grammar.
Josh WardCrimson__Heart Saying that @GulfCoastTider is not an objective writer regarding signing limits is essentially saying that no fan can be objective regarding their team. I Bleed Crimson Red and its writers have an impeccable record in their reporting accuracy. I don't see this blog or any of its writers being carried by traditional media outlets, which is not the case with the writers at IBCR. They are educated men who are writers for more than a sports blog. It may behoove you to take a lesson from them.
By the way, of what SEC school are you a fan?
You're a fool, Josh Ward. And you are a completely devoid of critical thinking skills. Try reading this article from someone who is actually able to research and write an objective article that contains the truth - not a half-assed article that reads like it was thrown together in fifteen minutes. http://www.ibleedcrimsonred.com/2012/01/justin-taylor-situation-shows.html gulfcoasttider
