Texags.com has taken a page out of former "Wrecking Crew" DC Bob Davie’s playbook and has taken to using academics as the reason they can’t recruit top line players to field a competitive team.

The end result of the NCAA investigation into the Alabama textbook scandal is that Bama will vacate 21 wins that fell between 2005-2007, and serve three years of probation. They will also have to pay a $43,900 fine. Can they just buy a single ticket to a Cal game and call it good? This whole affair is relatively minor in the grand scheme of things and Bama has a good chance of getting those wins back through the appeals process. After all Oklahoma got theirs back through the appeals process after the Big Red Motor Sports scandal that ousted QB Rhett Bomar.
