Charles Jefferson…just the type of student Nick Saban High will be looking for
The naming of a new high school seems like it would be a relatively mundane and somewhat regimented task. You’d usually name the school after the town, or the area, or a dead president, or a dead astronaut, or any assortment of dead local school administrators, and that’d be the long and short of it.
Montgomery, Alabama chose not to follow that tried and true school naming formulae. Instead they decided to open up the discussion to the unwashed Finebaum-listening masses and put the thing to a popular vote…or at least put the decision up to public suggestion. When they did this…of course they got multiple suggestions to name the new center for the advancement of young mind “Nick Saban High”.
Nick Saban High School, anyone?
Yes, of the approximately 60 suggestions received from the public, Nick Saban High is on the list. It was among the many intriguing and thought-provoking ideas submitted, but ultimat...

Alabama coach Nick Saban has parlayed the Crimson Tide's second national championship in three years into a raise and contract extension.
The university's board of trustees approved a two-year extension for Saban on Monday that will run through Jan. 31, 2020. He'll receive $5.32 million in 2012 with a $50,000 raise next year and $100,000 annually after that.
SCHOOL OF THOUGHT
There are fewer people in Alabama more revered than Nick Saban, and recently, the Tide's coach almost had a high school in the state named in his honor.
We all know in Alabama, football is right up there with your religion and your children. Some would say that either Auburn or Alabama football is their religion. And the players for each school? They’re like children. So in other words, it’s pretty important in the eyes of the citizen of Alabama.So it makes perfect sense that when a committee was tasked with naming a new high...
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama coach Nick Saban said he received overtures for other jobs after claiming the second national title in three years. Instead of bolting, he has received a raise and contract extension worth 5.62 million a year that he said represents his intention to finish his career in Tuscaloosa.
From my standpoint, the acceptance of this extension represents our...

One can guess that there wasn’t a lot of discussion when The University of Alabama Board of Trustees Compensation Committee met Monday to discuss the contracts of Crimson Tide Football Coach Nick Saban and his staff. Someone may have said, “Pass me the rubber stamp, please.” And who could blame them for rushing to get Saban signed up for a couple more years?
Alabama Coach Nick Saban said the new contract provided him and most members of his coaching staff means that he will finish his coaching career with the Crimson Tide and that Bama will remain competitive.
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban may have gotten a lot of honors in the Yellowhammer state since he began leading the Crimson Tide to two BCS titles and a return to national relevance. That includes his own statue on the University of Alabama campus, of course. However, that's apparently not enough for the Montgomery Public School board, which turned down an opportunity...

In honor of the return of Mad Men, tonight on AMC, I asked Twitter for their suggestions of college football’s Mad Men. The Photoshop above was what resulted.

I know I’ve been gone a while, and for that I do sincerely apologize. Between basketball and searching for employment? I kind of took a couple of weeks off in March. But I’m back, as good as ever, and I’ll start with news briefs as to where the SEC 14 stand at right now.
