I disagree, as an Alabama fan I cheer for other SEC schools when they play non-conf games, just like ill be cheering for UGA when they take on OK State, or LSU vs UW. Its called conference pride.

NCAA says Julio Jones and Mark Ingram can play as long as they pay
Posted by Don Kausler Jr. -- The Birmingham News September 02, 2009 7:00 PM

TUSCALOOSA - As long as Julio Jones and Mark Ingram pay, they can play.
That was the ruling that the NCAA announced Wednesday evening. The organization said the sophomore starters on Alabama's football team will remain eligible on the condition of repayment for "impermissible benefits" they received.

The NCAA is requiring Jones and Ingram to repay the value of the benefits to charity.

Jones, a star wide receiver, and Ingram, the starting running back, took a fishing trip in the spring that was paid for by an Athens businessman.

Alabama investigated the case and concluded that the businessman, 56-year-old Curtis Anderson, is not an Alabama booster. The university self-reported the violation to the Southeastern Conference.

The NCAA announced its decision in a four-paragraph statement early Wednesday evening:

The NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff has reinstated the eligibility of University of Alabama football student-athletes Julio Jones and Mark Ingram based on a condition of repayment.

"According to the facts of the case submitted by Alabama, the student-athletes received impermissible food, lodging, transportation and entertainment from an individual with whom one of the student-athletes had become acquainted prior to enrolling in college.

"Consistent with NCAA membership requirements, the institution reported the violation and declared the student-athletes ineligible. As part of the reinstatement request, the institution required the student-athletes to make repayment of the value of the impermissible benefits to charity.

"During the reinstatement process, the NCAA staff considers a number of factors including guidelines established by the NCAA Division I Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement, relevant case precedent, the student-athlete's responsibility for the violation, as well as any mitigating factors presented by the institution."

Alabama athletic director Mal Moore said Alabama officials "are gratified that this matter has been resolved."

"Our compliance department, the SEC and the NCAA worked closely throughout this process," Moore said in a written statement issued by the media relations staff, "and we appreciate the professional manner in which it was handled."

Anxiety about the eligibility of Jones and Ingram was beginning to rise with each day as Saturday's season opener against seventh-ranked Virginia Tech drew closer.

Alabama coach Nick Saban spoke twice about the case Wednesday, but both times were before the NCAA announced its ruling.

Saban was asked Wednesday morning if Alabama did not get a ruling from the NCAA by Saturday, did he plan to sit the two starters out of the 7 p.m. game in Atlanta?

"I think that is up to the NCAA," Saban said on the first of what will be a weekly Southeastern Conference teleconference with reporters. "It's not my decision to do anything.

"We're hoping for a response," Saban said. "We want to do what we need to do to do things the right way from a program standpoint and for the players' best interests. The institution has handled the situation with tremendous integrity. We're hopeful that we will have some sort of resolution in the short term."

Saban did not want to discuss what sitting Jones and Ingram down would mean to the Alabama offense.

"I'm not really into speculating on what might be," Saban said. "I've got enough problems with what is. So let's just focus on what is right now."

Saban repeated many of these comments during his opening statement to the news media following Wednesday's practice.

The National Championship game has been around since 1998: Since then the SEC has dominated.

SEC= 5-0
Big 12= 2-4
ACC= 1-2
Big East= 1-2
Big Ten= 1-2
Pac 10= 1-1

The SEC has the best fans and most electric stadiums in the entire country. The SEC has led the nation in attendance for 25 straight years!!!!

After this year it will be 26.

SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC!

Well, your local talk show hosts are idiots (and apparently haters).

Every year news columnists from other parts of the country write columns (have already read one from Big 12 and ACC country this year) trying to compare themselves to the SEC in football. Much like they thought last year the Big 12 thinks they are actually going to be better this year .

The SEC-SEC-SEC chant is just the fans and the players (LSU players did it on ESPN after winning the title a couple years ago) way of telling the rest of the country to kiss our ass.

We hate each other when we are playing each other, but nobody else in the country can mess with us.

At least you're not one of those OU fans that like to throw 1970 in our face (even though that does indeed count lol). Hope to get that number to 5 this season. I thought USC and Alabama only have 6.

I guess. But as a Texas fan. May I say, to hell with OU, Tech, A&M, OSU, Colorado, ISU, Kansas, Missouri, KSU, and Baylor. I tend to root for Nebraska football sometimes. Love their fans. But I cheer for Texas to succeed, not the big 12 to succeed. I could care less if the other teams go winless. They have no bearing on what Texas accomplishes. That's like me as a Cowboy fan rooting for the Redskins, Giants, and Eagles because the NFC East historically has been the best division in the super bowl era. You won't see me going around saying NFC East, NFC East, NFC East. And yes, people have compared themselves to the NFC East and we still don't give a shit about them or each other.

I just found it hilarious that when Florida won the national championship, you had Ole Miss and Auburn fans acting like they won the championship with them and talking shit to OU fans like they have accomplished the same thing. If OU won, you wouldn't see Texas or Tech or OSU fans talking shit to Florida like that. That's just me or should I say, the rest of the country ,though. BTW, I do acknowledge that the SEC is the best conference year in and year out.

Comparing college conferences to NFL divisons is pretty dumb.The NFL has a playoff so divison strength doesn't mean much. College conference strength is very important b/c it is a beauty pagent. See Utah from last year. If Utah had played in the SEC, Pac 10, or Big 12 they would have been in the national championship game. Or USC from last year who had the same record as Florida. The Pac 10 had a down year last year so UF got the nod. over USC.

As long as strength of schedule is important in college football then conference play is very important. Comparing it to the NFL is very stupid.

SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC! SEC!
