Rich Rodriguez Tells Nick Saban To ‘Cry Me A River…No One Comes To Games To Watch Defensive Coaches’

Nick Saban isn’t a huge fan of fast-paced offenses that never substitute. They take the defensive coaches out of the game, the Alabama coach, known for his defensive prowess, said at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala. last week.  Rich Rodriguez, the Arizona coach known for his spread-it-out, up-tempo offensive style, isn’t a supporter of that statement.  Rich Rod on Saban saying...

Nick Saban says national title expectations 'unrealistic' for first-year Alabama quarterbacks

To some, vanity license plates may seem narcissistic or self-indulgent. There's a message, and a bumper sticker just couldn't get the job done. But sometimes there's a reason to have one.

Nick Saban Said He Had To Convince Team To “Try To Play In A Consolation Game” During Last Year’s Sugar Bowl

Alabama entered last year’s Sugar Bowl as the No. 3 team in America and a 17 point favorite over No. 10 Oklahoma. Of course, the Sooners ended up beating the Crimson Tide, 45-31. It’s weird to see a Nick Saban coached team ever lose by two touchdowns to anyone, so when he was asked about the game today by ESPN, Saban presented this theory: it was really hard to convince his team...
