Saban asks recruiting sites for integrity

    Surely fansite bloggers wouldn't do something like this.

    He's right, of course, but it's still worth a chuckle to hear Little Nicky talk about integrity.

    Just a chuckle?

    I wish I could tell my Saban stories here without outing myself. The guy is a piece of work.
  5. It's hard to feel sorry for Saban -- OK, damn near impossible -- but he's right about the lack of ethics exhibited by some of these fan sites masquerading as journalists. We get tarred with the same brush, because non-blogging fans don't make the distinction between real journalists and these fanboy bloggers.

    Well, if so, that's not the fanbois fault, now is it?

    Saban? Integrity?

    Well I'll be! Someone finally got the two into the same sentence.

    And without the blue font.

    The mean nasty bloggers are telling the recruits lies, just like Saban does when he says "I'll still be coaching here three years from now." *

    (Or three weeks, what's the difference.)

    * Unless my agent Jimmy goes out and scares up an offer for 10 cents more than I'm getting paid now, that is.

    Keep in mind, Satan wants everyone on the same page -- fans, players, coaches, administration, media... this is just an extension
  11. The Rivals guys on my former beat were both exemplary professionals, and they beat our ass on real stories more than once. More than a dozen times probably.

    Saban is just the most visible stereotype of 90 percent of Division IA football coaches-- a bully, an asshole, drenched in paranoia and unreasonable in so many ways.

    To get to the top of their profession, they had to work their ass off and lose every decent personality trait they may have had at some point in their life.
