Nick Saban Addresses Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones Punishment [VIDEO]
One of the biggest questions coming into SEC Media Days 2016 was whether Alabama head coach Nick Saban would address the status of offensive lineman Cam Robinson and defensive back Hootie Jones following their arrest in May.
The question didn't come up during Saban's time in the main room, but his visit to the internet/radio room led to this answer on the two players' status with the Crimson Tide.
"Both players have done a significant amount of things to change their behavior internally," Saban said. "Whether it was a police ride-around, whether it was community service or juvenile groups that need positive role models and influence to make better choices and decisions.
"So we have viewed this as if these guys do these things to change their behavior and help other people, and that is ongoing, if they continue to do that, that will be how this matter is handled."
Saban would elaborate a bit more on the decision during an appearance on the SEC Network a short time later.
As Aaron Suttles said today on The Suttles Approach, barring any surprises between now and the start of the football season, expect both players to be available for the opener against USC.
