    In today's sophisticated financialized world, creative leasing puts nearly ANY car within reach!

    Careful...

    I may or may not have gone to a party in my day and a bunch of football players may or may not have showed up. They also may or may not have had a nice ride, gold chains, and a fat stack of $100 dollar bills...

    Very few of those cars are considered "expensive". Alot of those cars you can buy used and afford pretty easily. Or lease for pretty cheap. Used Camaros, mustangs, and chargers aren't really expensive unless they are a special edition. And I doubt every one of those is "their" car.

    Who cares. Give a couple of regular students cars too and you're all good to go.

    I remember a certain basketball player of ours driving around a brand new Escalade after he scored 54 points.

    After what UNC did and got away with, there is no such thing as cheating. I hope they are giving them weekly checks.

    They should be able to get loans available to the general public against future earnings potential, I don't care what the rule is. As long as the University or boosters aren't involved it shouldn't matter.

    I never understood the Bama love. UK B.B. fans that slurp on Bama football are scum. Absolutely bottom feeding scum

    There were two BMW in those pictures....even used and leased...those aren't cheap by any means.

    After the UNC garbage I really don't give a hoot about who's doing what anymore but let's not argue somebody is doing this for these guys. Any of my kids would to be able to pay for these cars on their own in college...we'd for sure have to help them out (or somebody else)

    Under current rules if they qualify they can receive spell Grants of $5500 ( may be higher now) and student loans of up to $20K per year. Add in the Cost of Attendance money and a college athlete can have about $30K/yr of tax free income.

    Can’t think of his name, but I 100% saw that lineman from Lafayette at Kroger not too long ago in a brand new Escalade (I believe, that or another luxury suv) with what had to be 24 or 26 inch wheels and a shiny Alabama license plate on the front. Definitely made me wonder

    First of all, I don't see any titles that provide proof that any of those vehicles actually belong to those players. Second, $30K/yr of tax free income with zero expenses for room and board is $2500/mo to essentially blow. You can lease a brand new BMW i8 for $1500/mo. Third, here in Nashville there are places like Music City Dream Cars that you can essentially time-share the exotic of your choice. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, etc. You pay an initiation fee and then a quarterly payment in exchange for a prescribed number of miles you want to drive any car in their fleet. For a $2500 initiation and $375/quarter you get 500 miles/year. Drive any car at any time until you reach your mileage quota. Or, you can just rent them for the day. In other words, if you just want to be seen driving in an expensive car there are affordable ways to do so.

    An ironic post, given the latest news. Perhaps the answer is/was, indeed, "not enough!"

    Funny. And our Aussie punter?

    And of course it does not hurt that the finance guy at one of Saban's dealerships...Crown Infiniti & Mercedes in Hoover has a picture of Saban in his office.

    I asked him if I could have one of the special "ZERO percent Tuscaloosa rates" a couple of years ago when we were buying someone out of their used lot...he laughed...laughed HARD...

    Colleges have doing this for years. I pulled up beside D Ramsey in the seventies and he was driving a new Sports car. Could have been a BMW not sure.

    Stipend money, Pell Grant's, room and board money, working camps, there are lots of ways for these "exploited" athletes to get money legally.

    1) I'm sure their players get slot of perks they shouldn't

    2) this pics really prove nothing. Many athletes (and others for that matter) take pics next to expensive cars. Also I'm sure given the situation, many of them are friends with former players who are now millionaires who may be the actual owners of said cars.

    Also the hundred dollar bills are almost surely the financial aid money referenced above. Hell even everyday students live it up when the financial aid checks hit. And that's without all the additional legitimate help the athletes get

    Tldr - I'm sure they're dirty but this isn't proof
