No recruiting in the champagne room

I should have gone into coaching



FROM ESPN.COM

Alabama football coach Mike Price spent time with a dancer at a nightclub in Pensacola, Fla., on April 16, The Birmingham News quoted the dancer as saying Wednesday.

The 57-year-old coach, who was hired in December from Washington State, was in the city for a pro-am golf tournament the next day.

Dancer "Destiny'' Stahl told the News in Thursday's editions that Price spent about $200 on her, but nothing happened beyond dancing. In all, Price spent several hundred dollars in cash at the club "buying and tipping all the girls,'' she said.

"There was no sex, no touching, no lap dancing,'' the 36-year-old Stahl said. "He was a gentleman.''

The Mobile Register reported that the next morning, a young woman in a hotel room registered to Price ordered more than $1,000 in food and drinks charged to his bill. Price was playing in the golf tournament at the time.

The Register, quoting four workers at the Crowne Plaza who would not agree to be identified, said the woman wanted the food placed in boxes so she could leave with it. She ordered one of everything on the menu, the paper said.

Concerns about the order prompted the hotel to contact Price, who was listed as being responsible for incidental room charges. The workers said Price returned later in the day and paid the bill after the woman left. She was not allowed to leave with the order.

The university is investigating Price's actions.

Price, who is married, declined comment Wednesday, saying he could not talk about the review until the university released a statement.

ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel has learned that rather than go to a party for pro-am players in the Bruno's Memorial Classic in Birmingham on Tuesday night, Price phoned his assistant coaches, who are on the road recruiting, and apologized for the scandal that has erupted.

Ouch. Didn't cover his tracks very well. Never, never bring 'em home.

That's my question, zf0enix. The story skips from hiring a stripper that night to do a private dance straight to the next morning in the hotel room ordering room service.

There's a lot in between....

Can he effectively recruit now? Can you imagine the types of welcomes he'd get on the road in the SEC from imaginative frat boys?
