Alabama Football's Jimmy Johns: So THIS Is Why Nick Saban Oversigned...

It's all starting to make sense now.

Nick Saban was asked a lot of questions when he oversigned for the upcoming 2008 football season, but quite obviously he knew he'd have some open roster spots.

This morning, LB Jimmy Johns was booted off the team after being arrested and charged with with five felony counts of distributing cocaine.  A sixth charge of possession was also tacked on after police officers searched his off-campus residence and found cocaine and Ecstasy pills.

Johns, who had been a RB previously, apparently misunderstood the "line" part of "linebacker" and assumed that cocaine distribution was part of his new role.

No word on whether this will affect sales at Jimmy Johns delis across the country.
