UA Officials Investigate Fishing Trip

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama has asked an Athens man to stay
away from two Crimson Tide football players he took on a Gulf Coast
fishing trip.

The university investigated the trip that Curtis Anderson took this past spring with star receiver Julio Jones and running back Mark Ingram.

Officials didn't report any NCAA violations or impose any
penalties on the football program. But Anderson has been asked to
end his relationship with the players, and Jones and Ingram were
told not to contact him.

The 56-year-old Anderson said he is friends with the players and doesn't care about football. He is disabled and said the two players helped him into the boat.

Alabama spokeswoman Deborah Lane said Anderson isn't an Alabama
booster or fan.
