Default Spurrier's latest victim: Nick Saban....

Widely reported in the secondary media. Welcome to the off season...

ZING!!!!

Quote:
“How many SECs has (Saban) won there in eight years? He’s won two. He’s won three nationals, but he’s only won two SECs in eight years. Now, if you had the No. 1 recruiting class every year and so forth, I don’t know if he has maxed out potentially as well as he could.”
Quote:
“I told Nick Saban one time, I said, ‘Nick, you don’t have to stay there until midnight and your teams would be just as good and win just as many,’ ” Spurrier said. “He said, ‘If I could do it the way you do it, I would, but I don’t feel comfortable unless I try to cover every base, every angle, be totally prepared.’ I said, ‘Well, that’s probably why you do it.’ When I come out there, I feel comfortable we are ready to play. We have our game plan in, going to call this, call that and so forth. Everybody is different as far as when they feel they are totally prepared.”

Those 3 National Championships probably take most of the sting out of the zing. Saban's the best coach in the country, the total package, the numbers don't lie.

Let's hope so, but I think Lame Kiffin might be there as a fall guy.

Any half decent coach can win at Alabama. Spurrier is the greatest of all time. Look at what he has done with zero history. He could have won at Alabama just like Saban. I've admired HBC every since he was at Duke. He doesn't get the credit he deserves & I hope he wins us an SEC and national title before he leaves. He could've done that already at Alabama himself but he chooses to challenge himself. Saban takes the easy way out. LSU and Alabama? If you can't win at those two places with all their resources then you suck as a coach.

Bama is top 5 in recruiting because it is Bama but Saban definitely has it at #1. I'll take Spurrier all day on game day with the same talent. The numbers? The numbers at Bama are great but his previous are....eh... MSU was mediocre, LSU was good but not the best they've ever had (and it's LSU), and Bama is Bama. Dude is doing allot now with allot. He hasn't built anything.

People read way too much into things like this. In no way shape or form was Spurrier trying to disparage Saban

To be honest and fair, I really don't think this is Spurrier zinging Saban as much as it is Spurrier zinging the recruiting process...

Even if he is reaching, this is the off season; therefore, it will be scooped up and ran with. Thanks for posting, Lon!

I'm not allowed to comment?

Maybe it's me but I don't think Saban cares much.
He's too much of a robot and those national title rings are in the way

Few coaches in the history of college football have as many national championships as Saban does. And he's still got a lot of years left. The guy is doing something right.
