    My brother-in-law is older than Saban and not really someone who has been in training or athletics (he does sail). He left the hospital the next morning and went to work that day.

    Obviously there are limits to 2nd chances but I totally agree with him.

    Whether I agree or disagree with Saban is based on the nature of the "mistake" and overall existing track record of the "mistake" maker.

    "When it comes to punishment and 2nd chances, we take a close look at each situation and evaluate them on a case-by-case basis. We take a lot of factors into consideration when deciding if a young man deserves a 2nd chance or not. Some of these factors include height, weight, 40m time, projected spot on the depth chart and star rating, among others."

    Note - Not saying Saban specifically is guilty of this (he likely is) but there are a lot of other coaches who are as well.

    Was watching some old Woody clips and came across this. Saban talking about Coach Hayes getting the team fired up to play TTUN in 1981.

    You can hate Saban all you want, but listen to the guy and it's no surprise why he's had the success he has. Bama is lucky beyond belief that he's their coach, and they'll miss him like hell when he retires.

    "Aflac wanted to find and partner with the best recruiter of all time. And it naturally led us to Saban. When we think about Coach Saban and his role in this campaign, he is really along the journey with the Aflac duck by his side to recruit five-star recruits,” Shannon Watkins, vice president of brand and creative services at Aflac, told Yahoo Fin

    "We know that Saban is an Alabama football coach — but that is not the role that Aflac sees him playing for us … We have him out there as the best recruiter of all time."

    Nick Saban says he suspended unnamed Alabama player for Miss. St. game for not going to class


    Let the sleuthing and/or Internet message-board speculating commence in earnest.

    Thursday night on his weekly radio show, Nick Saban revealed that he had suspended one of his Alabama football players for this Saturday’s game against Mississippi State in Starkville. The head coach even gave a specific reason for the suspension — the player didn’t go to class.

    What Saban didn’t do? Divulge the name of the player who has been suspended.

    Entire article:

    Re: He didn't say which one.

    Want to bet it wasn't Tua?

    Whoever it was, probably so low on the depth chart he forgot the guy's name 2 years ago.

    Good one I just heard today -

    With their loss to LSU, Saban is now 0-2 lifetime vs Ohio State 3rd string quarterbacks.

    Heard that one a while back. And it was hilarious. And then someone here fact checked it and noted Bama beat LSU last year, making it a 1-2 mark.
