Kristen Saban (Nick Saban’s daughter) had a College GameDay sign about her flashed on TV

  Welp. It looks like some personal lines have been crossed on College GameDay today. I don’t think Alabama Crimson Tide fans (especially Nick Saban) will like this sign about Kristen Saban. Never want to see a picture of your daughter (who is quite easy on the eyes BTW) with an innuendo under it. I’m surprised this sign wasn’t confiscated at the entrance to GameDay. Now this...

Was Kristen Saban (Nick Saban daughter) Gameday sign over the line?

Kristen Saban, daughter of Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban, and arch-nemesis of Phi Mu sorority sister Sarah Grimes, was the subject of a very controversial sign on ESPN College Gameday this morning. How did this one get past the ESPN Gameday Sign police? Is it over the line? Well you heard about the lawsuit against Kristen Saban, how she allegedly beat her sorority sis Grimes. I don’t...

Saban walks out after probe questions

On Wednesday, Yahoo Sports published a story alleging that former Alabama offensive lineman DJ Fluker, along with four other former and current SEC players, received impermissible benefits prior to completing their college careers. That's important because it could call into question Alabama's 2011 and 2012 national titles, of which Fluker was a part. The story also happened...

Grow up, Nick ... lose the snarl

Nick Saban's face turned red. His voice grew loud, into a bullying yell: "I made a statement,'' he said. "DON'T ASK ME ABOUT THAT AGAIN.'' Saban took a non-story that nobody on earth was ever going to care about, especially during Texas A&M week -- something about a Yahoo! Sports report on a former player getting impermissible benefits and...

Nick Saban storms out of press conference on Wednesday

Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban stormed out of his press conference on Wednesday when he fielded three questions in a row about the story/allegations against DJ Fluker and four other SEC players.  The story says that the five players received improper benefits and Saban figured that he wouldn’t have to answer any questions about it after he gave a blanket statement...

Nike Recalls Coaches Polos to Add Swooshes

Check out that picture of Nick Saban and a half dozen coaches and assistants on the Alabama sideline. I can only see two non-obscured people, I can't see any shoes or cleats, and I still counted 14 swooshes. That's still not enough for Nike. The retail giant that built the entire Oregon football program and rebranded half of the country this offseason wasn't satisfied...

Saban, Sumlin Talk About Game

The next time a coach accuses the media of hype, consider this sentence from Alabama Coach Nick Saban during Wednesday’s Southeastern Conference teleconference: “Texas A&M has an outstanding team, one of the best offensive teams probably in college football, maybe in the history of college football in term’s of their quarterback’s ability to make plays and the great job...

Nick Saban Walks Out

Nick Saban gives the cold shoulder to the press after they focused on grilling him about Yahoo’s allegations that former offensive linemen stud DJ Fluker was funneling cash into the Alabama program.  Sure Nick Saban is one smug bastard, but these idiots couldn’t ask one question about the biggest game of the season thus far.  We are just days away from a Johnny Football v Crimson...

Saban doesn't want DBs eyeballing Johnny Manziel

All eyes might be on Johnny Manziel in Saturday's Alabama-Texas A&M game - except for the Crimson Tide's defensive backs. Top-ranked Alabama coach Nick Saban doesn't want his DBs turning back to check out No. 6 Texas A&M's electric quarterback when he's moving around in the backfield. Too many things can happen, and most of them bad. ''I told...

Tide look for revenge against Aggies

The most anticipated game of the early season takes place Saturday when No. 1 Alabama travels to play No. 6 Texas A&M in a matchup of two SEC powers, and a pair of teams that are expected to challenge for the national championship.
