Spurrier on Saban

His thoughts on Nick Saban and what he’s done at Alabama. "He’s got a nice little gig going, a little bit like (John) Calipari. He tells guys, ‘Hey, three years from now, you’re going to be a first-round pick and go.’ If he wants to be the greatest coach or one of the greatest coaches in college football, to me, he has to go somewhere besides Alabama and win, because they’ve always won there at Alabama." His thoughts on who’s the best coach in the SEC. "I think it’s Saban. He’s considered the best. Les Miles is considered one of the best, when you look at number of wins. I believe you’re as good as your record. You are whatever your record is. Don’t give me any excuses or that you can’t win at this place."

Bets on whether he'll sit the group (or anyone) for the Oregon opener?

Mark May is an idiot


And other equally shocking news of the day: the sky is blue and the Earth is round. Somewhat seriously though, how do you commentate on college football for a living and not know how to spell Saban's name?

Cody Struggles on Senior Bowl Day 3?


Mind you, this is apparently Todd McShay's, Steve Muench's, and Kevin Weidl's take on Cody's performance, as reported by Low (i.e., not Low's assessment). "Cody hasn't been a factor rushing the passer and has had trouble splitting double teams. Because of his consistent lack of effort and his weight, the Scouts Inc. crew says teams might be hesitant to use even a second-round pick on him."
