Bama Responds To Kentucky Call-Out On Vacated Wins

When the NCAA decided to tsk-tsk Kentucky regarding the “500th victory” celebration it held for John Calipari, it was opening Pandora’s Box.  By making sure one school wasn’t ignoring its past rulings on vacated wins, the NCAA put itself in a position where it had to be up to date with every other school’s media guides and websites.

John Clay of The Lexington Herald-Leader pointed out last week that Nick Saban was still being credited on Alabama’s website for five wins that were vacated from the 2007 season.

A UA spokesman, however, told Cecil Hurt of TideSports.com that while the website is wrong, the school’s media guide is A-OK:


“All of our printed material is correct.  We have consulted with the NCAA prior to any publication of our media guides and have been completely compliant.  In the wake of the situation at Kentucky, we have become aware of a technical issue with our on-line site, and we will correct that discrepancy.”


If Clay is suggesting that the NCAA is inconsistent and — as is often the case — is not completely aware of what every school is doing, we feel he’s correct.

But if Clay — or any UK fans reading Clay’s work — is suggesting that the NCAA is playing favorites, we think they might want to check Alabama’s track record with the NCAA.  For that matter, they should pick up a phone and call any Tide fan in the country.  ‘Cause if there’s any group that feels more picked on than Kentucky fans, it’s Bama fans.

Yeah, that's why NASA and the US military base so many rocket scientists there.

They may not know how to count or do simple math in Alabama just yet.
