Show me the money!!!!!

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

I'm probably in the minority, but I like Saban for some of his ideas only. I like his idea of "the process", and the statement about mediocre people and high achievers. Now, if only there was an explanation to the allegations of payments, T-Town Men's Wear, cars and God only know what else is surrounding the Alabama Football program, I could actually respect the man for his success.

It's all corporate buzzwords and bullshit from leadership books.  It's all about having amazing facilities and five star recruits.  Do you think Urban's "process" is any different?  The guy understands defense, similar to the way Urban is with offenses.

I agree with you, the idea's (likely) are not unique to Saban. I definitely believe Urban is on Saban's level and they both have a high attention to detail, both are high-intensity guys from what I have seen.
Like I said, I like his ideas, and there is no denying he has had success. He is in my top 2 for current college coaches, but I won't believe that he has attained the level of success he has had without a bit of help until the accusations/evidence are addressed and investigated.

To a degree, I agree with you, but you still need someone like Saban or Meyer there expecting excellence and driving people (players and staff) to get better.

Keep paying those players, Nick. The NCAA certainly doesn't seem to care.

NICK SABAN IS, WAS, AND ALWAYS will be a hillbilly redneck thief, who loves stealing from the people who love college football, and it will come out sooner or later that he thrived due to the payouts his players received, but to the NCAA he will be a hero, and they don't punish hero's theft or no theft............. I will dance on his grave...........

Upon this Rock, I build my house....and Let no man put asunder

In my mind the guy deserves respect.  4 titles is ridonculous, cheating or not.  If it comes out he was cheating then fine everything will have an * next to it in my mind.  Right now though the guy is a winner and is relentless.  You have to admire that.

"Say my name."

Does anyone else find it a little suspicious that this glowing piece on Saban was done on CBS (the 2nd home of the SEC besides espn)?  And that nothing of their recent off the field issues were brought to light during 60Minutes rare exclusive behind the scenes access to the Alabama program.
