Im with you but I was explicitly talking about Boz and his "Tua told the coaches" stuff. Even if he had someone close to the program (I dont believe he does) and they told him that, if he had half a working braincell he would have worded things the same way you did. I never once saw you lay a claim as a definitive fact - even when I attempted to pull it out of you lol - like he does with everything.
As far as the top pick stuff goes... Saban has said as much as Tua was projected as a Top 15 pick but Im wondering how much of a chance is there that you get situations like this where certain people in the league put things out there to the players saying "YOU'D BE A TOP PICK FIVE PICK 100%" especially in this situation knowing there was a high likelihood by the time the draft rolls around he could drop way down the board simply because of the medical stuff and then you have a teams on the back end of the first round getting excited about possibly getting a Top 5 pick at 22-26 range. I know thats super conspiratorial but I've been thinking about that scenario and who - outside of Saban - would be in his orbit to try and protect him from that sort of thing.
