Default Re: Oliver Purnell to Bama Rumors

Yeah Barb and back in the day Broadway Joe and the other big name college players would not pass up the NFL for a startup league just for money. Neither would Dr J and the BB players. Just like politics, sports are about money. Prestige is nice but at the end of the day you go for the bucks.

But in the end, I CANNOT see a him leaving the ACC for the SEC....maybe the Big East or another ACC school, but not the SEC...IMHO. However, that doesn't mean that TDP can take that for granted. He needs to let OP know how "valued" he is to Tiger Nation...show him the money!!
