This is a pretty controversial topic that, when looking at it on it's face, is kinda not fair. But, in defense of Saban and all little people in head coaching, the axe has to fall somewhere. I really wish we had the same problem, as the secondary wouldn't be almost bereft of ANY cornerbacks. You don't see Bama's best WR thinking of playing defense part time because he pretty much HAS to.
And yes, I do realize that Malcolm has the POTENTIAL to be a great CB, but he's never played a down at that position in his college career, so do we really know? Please don't give me the, "He's Making A Lot of Future Money for Himself" argument. There's really no difference in the wage scale between corners and WR in relation to where you're picked, so that's a stupid argument.
Anyway, back to the real meat of the story. Former 5 * OL Tyler Love, 4 * WR Michael Bowman, and 3 * WR Ronald Carswell were given walking papers by Nick yesterday. The writing was kinda on the wall for Bowman and Carswell, as they hadn't seen the field much and were suspended for the NC game for undisclosed reasons.
As far as Love goes, just check his hair and imagine the fratness within. Apparently he liked funneling more than blocking.
Yeah, Saban gets hammered for this in public, but you really have to ask yourself, "What else would you do if you were at Bama and it was your job to win titles?"
