Suspended ‘Bama lineman reportedly looking to transfer

brandon moore

An indefinite suspension during spring practice for violating unspecified team rules landed Alabama defensive lineman Brandon Moore in Nick Saban’s doghouse — the length of which, obviously, was unspecified.

However, there are some new rumors floating around that suggest perhaps Moore has played his final snaps in a Crimson uniform, as is reporting that Moore is considering transferring from Tuscaloosa and is primarily considering taking the JUCO route at East Mississippi Community College.

As of now, though, Moore has been unavailable for comment and EMCC coach Buddy Stephens has refused to confirm the speculation. In fact, the only person seemingly willing to provide any insight on the situation is Saban.

“We had plans to talk to all these guys when school was out. The fact that school got cancelled has made it a little more difficult,” Saban said of his suspended player. “So the plan now is to wait until grades come in to further assess the situation. But he’s suspended indefinitely.”

Believe it or not, that statement would actually be considered more insightful than Saban’s original thought on Moore’s suspension:

We don’t know what’s happening there.”

Moore played in four games last season for the Tide, and heading into the spring, was expected to battle for more serious playing time.

    Sounds like a grade issue. If that’s the case, JUCO may help him get it together.

    Actually Deb, it was a not going to class and skipping the 4th quarter program kind of thing. Moore has talent, but he does not have the discipline.

    @Deb, I really hate how you post on everything, no insight and just overall annoying!!!!!

    @jtsel81 …

    Yeah, my comment here was a throwaway post. But most of my comments are both knowledgeable and insightful … as you and your little pissant friends well know. Your problem is that you can’t handle seeing posts from a who knows the game that you can’t bully. Too bad. I’ve been a regular on CFT and PFT for a couple of years and get as more positive feedback than negative. And baby, I’m not going anywhere. What I find amusing is that you’re too stupid to a) realize that, and b) skip my posts if you don’t like them.

    You’re also pretty whiny for a guy.

    @bigdinla …

    Thank you. It’s easy to slam players for that, but being self-employed, lack of discipline is sometimes my an issue for me, too. You can have all the talent in the world, but drive and focus will take you further.

    Did that spanking hurt as much as it reads like?

    You should be ashamed making these big, tough crap-talking sports hounds look like fools in your wake! (/sarcasm off)

    Why are you not coaching, Deb?

    I fear the fragile male egos couldn’t take your directness! Stay on ’em!

    I think Deb went easy on you. You should thank her.

    Could you possibly elaborate a little as to why you feel she makes annoying and non-insightful posts? I’m dieing to hear it :)

    JTsel must have caught you on a bad day. I’m disappointed in your gentle response to Mr. Whiny, lol
