Jon and Kevin both work for The Birmingham News and both have recently written some very good articles on the topic of oversigning (and yes, the al.com site search for the word "oversigning" nets 18,000+ links on the al.com website -- wow). Scarbinsky, more so than Solomon, has incurred the wrath of Alabama fans for his comments regarding Nick Saban, so much so that subscribers have threatened to boycott The Birmingham News. We personally commend both Jon Solomon and Kevin Scarbinsky for covering oversigning they way they have, which has been both thorough and professional. And kudos to the Birmingham News for standing behind them.
The writing is on the wall. The abuse of this loophole has been uncovered for all to see and the only people defending its practice are the coaches that are exploiting it and the fans of those coaches. Most objective, rational-minded folks see this for what it is and are against it.
Kevin and Jon touch on all of the aspects of oversigning in this podcast. Jump to the 10:15 minute mark to hear the beginning of their comments on oversigning.
