    How can saban "promote" sarkisian to off coord, if kiffin remains and doesnt join FAU prior to playoff, doesnt that cause them to surpass the limit on number of coaches?

    Contract probably doesn't go into effect until after Kiffen's is terminated.

    But Alabama does have a huge ghost staff.

    I think the NCAA should not allow paid consultants to assist in game prep.

    Just on offense Bama has Mike Locksley, Steve Sarkisian and Erick Kiasu all as consultants. Sark and Locksley were HCs.

    That is why Bama is so hard to beat. When you have a flawless game plan because the actual coaches coach and consultants do everything else.

    It's a huge competitive advantage.

    Agree, they already attempt to limit number of coaches. Rule says ten, but every p5 seems to have way more than ten, not counting consultants and strength/conditioning

    Also helps to have the most talented team in the country year in, year out.

    Not the point of the conversation, but coukd be chicken and egg, do illegal things then you are best or are you best then do illegal things to maintain. After all they were on probation year before saban took over, pretty quick recovery u must say, but i digress.
    Are the consultants interacting with the players and/ or a factor in recruiting? Thats the bigger question

    Several teams have comparable talent. Just not comparable coaches or ghost staffs

    The Tide makes so much money for the NCAA that they can pretty much do what they want as long as they don't embarrass them.

    A few teams have comparable talent but not close to the depth that bama has. I'm sure Cajun T would agree that Bama brings in higher number of elite athletes, i.e. Future top round draft picks than any other team. I also agree that they are extremely well coached, but it all begins with bringing in the big dogs.

    And, according to an Alabama alum I used to work with, opening the checkbook when necessary. The NCAA has a conflict of interest between enforcement and knowing who their cash cows are.

    What Alabama is doing is not illegal. It should be, as it frees up their coaches to coach more and recruit more effectively, but until the NCAA starts counting ghost staff as coaches, anyone with enough money can do what they do.

    But if they are talking to players and recruits then it does become illegal, how do we know they arent?
