It's not like they had a lot of big wins to vacate

The Alabama Crimson Tide are going to be forced to vacate wins for its football program from 2005-2007. This includes the first season under current head coach Nick Saban. The allegations include football players getting free text books for other students. Included in the list of players were former Alabama stars Antoine Cladwell and Glen Coffee. While being forced to vacate victories from the Mike Shula era is no big deal, I'm sure Saban is furious about losing victories from the 2007 season.

Saban's first squad dropped their final 4 games of the regular season before winning their bowl game to finish with a record of 7-6. That included an embarrassing loss to Louisiana-Monroe.

As Bubba says, this picture never gets old.

With the forfeits, Saban will now have a losing record during his first season at Alabama. As if they did not already want to remove the ULM from their records, now they will want to remove the entire season.

Oh yeah, there is one other game from that 2007 that the outcome will not be changed:

Round the bowl and down the hole, Roll Tide Roll!

Round the bowl and down the hole, roll Tide, roll...I can't read enough about probation for Bama. It just has such a nice ring to it.
