Scarbinsky: Alabama violations involve over 200 student athletes

(emphasis mine)

It's been 15 weeks since Alabama snuck off to appear before the committee, but don't read anything into the wait. A quick decision doesn't necessarily mean a slap on the wrist any more than a drawn-out verdict guarantees a public flogging.

Perhaps it's taken so long because this case, from the start, has been a bit more complex than Alabama wanted us or allowed us to understand.

The school's response to the NCAA's Notice of Allegations, when it was released to the public, blacked out the names of any student-athletes allegedly involved in the textbook shenanigans.

Fair enough, but in a move that had nothing to do with individual student privacy, the school also blacked out the number of student-athletes and sports involved, as well as the total value of the impermissible textbooks and supplies.

Would it surprise you if I told you that about 200 student-athletes were involved in the four years the textbook case covers? That's my understanding.

And of all the sports involved, football had the fewest players involved.


Interesting read.  Scarbinsky has been butt hurt since Alabama didn't make all the records public for the media.  The Barner comments at the bottom are pretty funny too.
