Saban Denies Interest in Texas, Again

"I don't know where y'all get these reports. I don't know where y'all get your information, but I've already commented on all of this stuff," Saban said at his Wednesday press conference. "There's nothing new or different that's ever happened. I'm very committed to the University of Alabama. Love being here. Talk about it before, don't need to talk about it again."

Nick Saban has to deny interest in Texas again I know fans of a lot of programs get anxious when there's talk of their coach possibly leaving. Well, all of this business with Saban is proof that nearly every good coach is not immune to talk of a jump elsewhere. If no one has an eye on your head man, that's when it's time to worry. As for Saban, I don't think he's going anywhere. I do, however, get a kick out of him getting angrier and angrier with each time he's forced to issue a denial of something. Hopefully the potential stability of a new AD being named at Texas won't end all of the rumormongering.

Saban said during the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, "LSU wasn't winning when I went there. Michigan State wasn't winning when I went there. Toledo wasn't winning when I went there. And Alabama really wasn't winning when I came here. I guess I gotta go someplace else. I don't know." He added, "I think it's great, I love Steve. I'm always anxious to hear what he has to say - it's always funny."

Saban responds to Spurrier Not a bad comeback to Spurrier's line about him from April, all things considered, but he completely missed (or avoided) Spurrier's actual point. Hit the link if you're lost on the exchange.

This week's top-10 list topic: the best villains in college football... I'm listing the brash, stir-the-pot characters: 1. Alabama coach Nick Saban: ...In our recent ESPN The Magazine survey of college players, Saban was the runaway top answer to the question, "Who is the last coach you'd want to play for based on what you know?" In fact, Saban was named almost twice as often as any other coach. Apparently, word from some Tide players has circulated. "Guys never have anything good to say about him," one SEC player said. (emphasis mine)

Bruce Feldman's Villains of College Football ESPN's big thing right now is asking who the biggest villains in college football. Normally I just skip these sorts of exercises, but Feldman isn't a rabble rouser and I haven't heard anything like this before. What about y'all? Anyone else heard of any dissent within the Tide ranks? For what it's worth, he has Lane Kiffin at No. 2 and Bobby Petrino at No. 4 before the ESPN Insider cutoff hits.

"Nu’Keese was here on campus (on his recruiting visit) and his phone kept ringing. "One of our coaches said, ‘Nu’Keese, who’s that?’ He said, ‘Urban Meyer.’ "Just so you know, when a recruit is on another campus, you can’t call him. I love the fact that Urban had to cheat and still didn’t get him. ... "Nick Saban (Alabama’s coach) should have started his press conference (Wednesday) by saying, ‘Our great class that we signed ... I’d really like to thank Lance (Thompson) because Lance signed eight of those guys.’ "

Lane Kiffin, defiantly showing his belief that accomplishment need not be a prerequisite for talking smack Move over, Les Miles. You've got competition.

I asked six high school coaches from the state of Louisiana this question. ... My first question: Better coach, Miles or Saban? The responses: "Saban." "Saban, no question." "Saban." "Saban, without a doubt." "Saban, easily." One coach begged off, saying that he didn’t watch a lot of college football due to concentrating on his own team.

Miles vs. Saban: Bringing the gavel down (It's not all that bad for the Mad Hatter)
