Why is this still a story? Something that this writer does not say is that both players probably would have been redshirted at Alabama and most likely will have the same situation at Kentucky and Arkansas. So in real time, they could have seen playing time just as quickly if they had waited until January 2013 to sign. The scholarships were not taken away as this writer and other writers seem to want to keep saying. The offers were delayed. Why are we not still seeing the story of the Miller kid who was already in Baton Rouge ready to start school when his offer was pulled and he enrolled at Auburn? Seems like this is more egregious than what happened in Tuscaloosa.I know that the site writers will have the last say and point out that only Alabama fans are making these rationalizations. They are probably right about that but those other fans would also like to have 2 National Championships in the last 3 years too.

I think it should have been noted that Bama continued to honor it's offer to the player after his injury when others who had been recruiting him dropped their offers. That would tell the complete story. Also, Coach Saban did not pull the offer from Taylor. He still has a scholarship offer from Bama, just a little later. It will give his knee time to heal properly and he will be ready to go when the time comes. And why the lead reference to Alabama when much of the article centers on a kid who LSU cut loose after he was already on campus. Isn't that the way the Miller kid wound up at Auburn. I enjoy the work Mr. SEC.com does, but this one I think was designed to make Bama look bad when in reality the coaches were trying to do the right thing and be honest with Taylor.
