Tuscaloosa Mens Where?

This is either a developing story or just another Wartigesman's wet dream: T-Town mens store at the center of signed jersey controversy.
After reported on the odd relationship between T-Town Menswear and Alabama football, the university provided word to OKTC and ESPN that it had sent a cease and desist letter to the store in December of 2010 and found nothing improper in the relationship between the store and its players. But as further investigation ensues the connections between the program, the store, and the store's owner, Tom Albetar, are becoming deeper and more troubling. In fact, OKTC has discovered that Albetar was well known enough to Alabama officials to receive sideline passes to Alabama games in both 2009 and 2010.
The only thing that's safe to say at this point is that Tom Albetar won't be on the sideline for the Bama-Arkansas game in a couple months. Where the story goes from there...who knows.
