I have a buddy that coaches at a small college in Alabama that has some knowledge regarding recruiting. What he has told me is that every school skirts the rules *gasp*. He has also mentioned to me that Gus likes to think that we don't and tries to stay out of it as much as possible, that Saban know everything that goes on but keeps his hands clean, and that Freeze was the dirtiest coach of them all. Said that he actively participates in everything. Also told me a story of one of the guys that went that played for him got a brand new car the day his brother signed with Tennessee. Said that one of the ways schools get to kids is by giving their family free stuff instead of the actual player as that will put pressure on the recruit to sign with their school.
