Saban and the Alabama medical staff determined that Gulledge had an injury severe enough to end his playing career. I don't see how it's fair to speculate on whether there may have been other motives. Seems comparable to any other decision where the public isn't privy to the full details, you know, kind of like an NCAA ruling. Not sure how one can have it both ways. Either you take these announcements at face value, or you don't.
I suppose one could choose to believe that which supports ideas favorable to their position, and at other times make blind accusations when the position doesn't, but that just doesn't seem very sporting now, does it?
