Alabama released a list of NCAA violations from the last 12 months, and it included three from football.

The list, which was posted Thursday on the school’s website, withheld the specific names of coaches, administrators and student-athletes in the violations.

The biggest violation was a football player receiving an impermissible benefit from a staff member. According to al.com, the player was former safety HaHa Clinton-Dix, who was suspended for two games last season, and staff member was Corey Harris, who was placed on administrative leave but later resigned.

Another football violation involved an assistant coach calling a prospect more than once per week. The coach was banned from making or receiving calls from prospects for two weeks. Another violation had to do with “Recreational Activities observed by members of the coaching staff” and the staff was education material.

In other Alabama news, redshirt offensive lineman Brandon Hill tweeted that he has been released. According to BamaOnline, Hill finished this past spring as a member of the third-team offense.

2. Georgia finally unveiled its response to the NCAA’s allegations of major violations committed by swimming and diving coach Jack Bauerle. The Bulldogs released their report at 5:11 p.m. last Thursday evening, or the day before the Fourth of July. They actually sent it into the NCAA pn Monday, June 30, according to the date on the cover letter signed by UGA President Jere Morehead.

Too funny carvell...

Hey Birbow, you must really hate yourself. I don' know who you root for, but they must be a really sorry tea! Lighten up dude life is short & so is your temper. Remember there is only ONE GOD & ONE devil. I doubt Coach Saban is the devil.

What the hell would the "Ice Cream" man do if there was no BAMA  news?  At least BAMA reports their violations. GOD forbid St Rich reported any thing!

Released?  What is he a free agent?  You high school players better pay attention.  You go to Bama and everything goes as planned (and that's not as planned for you but for the coaches), your good.  You go to Bama, don't star at your position, or get injured, you're done.  Done.  They don't care.  It's about winning football games.  It's about Ala-Frigin-Bama.  It's about Nick Satan.  But it aint about you.  If you're good with that, then welcome home.  But just remember, you might be the unlucky one to twist that knee, or have that bad spring, or have that once in a lifetime kid come in behind you, and the next thing you know you're playing for UAB and hoping to get a degree.

GRANT is a good coach, just not a Major Conference school. He is a Mid-Major Coach.


He does things the right way, unfortunately guys like Bruce Pearl do it the wrong way and get the glory.

1-ONCE a year the U of A (not Nick Saban) releases the secondary violations for the pas yeat. This has been the case each year. The media DOESN'T have to make a OPEN records request to get this list unlike some schools require.

@-Brandon Hill has been unable to get himself into a position to compete at Bama due to his ongoing battle with his weight. He is leaving Bama BY HIS CHOICE. The article fails to mention that but again that wasn't the purpose of the article. Just another Got U piece but that is the media today. I am hopeful they get paid by the hit for there is no way they get paid by the content.

Wow, such an insightful and enlightening article. NOT.   Where is the report of what happened?  What benefit was given too and received by Hicks?   Who was the recruit that was contacted more than once a week, and just how severe is this violation in comparison to what others are doing?    Just a waste of newspaper space and reported, editor, and publisher should be ashamed and embarrassed that this was all you could come up with.

Blame everything on that liberal media, Wet. Maybe you and others should look a little closer than that.  Bama supplied the information published.  No mention of what you are saying by them, so no idea where you are getting that information, and I doubt the AJC would publish hearsay as fact.   Obviously, no such information supplied from the Bama sports information office.

Drake's car was parked inside a zone where a shooting was being investigated....Drake tried to get to his car and boom he was arrested.

Rule #1....don't try to get inside the yellow tape

@HarveyPooka  The Clinton-ix ting is old news...  it was a loan of a few hundred dollars that I believe was repaid.

Like I said this s old news from many months ago

@HarveyPooka Like with the Alabama newspapers, I posted the information that was released by the University of Alabama. They did not provide any more specifics, or even names.

Some on here don't think highly or your reporting, it seems.  But they sure come on here and read your articles on a daily basis.  Funny thing, isn't it?

Read what Carvel posted about the facts in the article.  He published what Bama gave him, nothing more, nothing less.  But, as usual Wet, thanks for the highly intelligent response, or should I say rant.  Must be tough living with such a high level of frustration and anger at a world you can't dictate strictly on your terms only.

@Grant1296 Life sounds great for you 1296, enjoy those kids because unlike the dogs and cats they will grow up leave and not call very much anymore. It's just what happens, i did it, back in a time when there were no cell phones and you did it also. Understand the words coming out of my mouth, the empty nest sucks! Enjoy your free time, but cherish the seconds, minutes and hours of your children. It goes to $%^&&&^ fast.

Agree with that GT ...

My oldest daughter is a freshman at UGA....

That's why POAD kinda rubs me the wrong way

With that drunk white girls crap....

Middle son will be a H.S senior...

Still have one going in 7th grade...

Your right they grow up damn fast...

@Grant1296 And i totally agree with you about the drunk white girl college non-sense. If you are listening POAD, there are a whole hell of a lot of daughters going to UGA and i would greatly appreciate it if you shut up the drunk white girl crap!! Well we will see how that works out.......later
