What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

…And For Your “Pot Calling the Kettle Black” Moment

So, let me be sure I got this straight…Alabama head coach Nick Saban, the same man who has deserted two universities and an NFL team strictly for money is calling anybody a pimp?

HOOVER, Ala. (AP)—Nick Saban didn’t pull punches Wednesday when discussing the improper contact with athletes by unscrupulous agents, comparing their behavior to that of a “pimp.”

The Alabama coach was upset about the rash of recent agent-related incidents that have resulted in NCAA investigations at several Southeastern Conference schools.

“I don’t think it’s anything but greed that’s creating it right now on behalf of the agents,” Saban said in a rant at the SEC media days. “The agents that do this—and I hate to say this, but how are they any better than a pimp?

Let’s break that down, shall we? I can certainly understand Saban being upset, being that his very own Crimson Tide are falling under the microscope because of, amongst other things, the actions of the agents in question. But it is a big day in Hypocrisy City when Saban appoints himself the arbiter of sanctimony.

Apparently, he’s gambling on the fact that nobody remembers 1999, when Saban led the usually mediocre and at-the-time on probation Michigan State Spartans to a 9–2 season that included wins over Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State. Following the final regular-season game, Saban abruptly resigned to accept the head coaching position with LSU. Of course, he collected a big bag of money.

It would also seem he’s rolling the dice that nobody recalls 2004, when Saban ditched LSU, on Christmas Day no less, for another big bag of money from the Miami Dolphins of the NFL.

I’ve been known to gamble a bit in my day, but even I wouldn’t let a bet ride three times, but then again, I’m not Nick Saban. Once again, he’s betting on your faded memory, one that hopefully doesn’t remember his empassioned speech in 2006 telling all of us how he was “not going to be the coach of Alabama” that happened mere hours away from Saban boarding a chartered jet bound for Tuscaloosa with yet another giant bag of greenbacks.

Let’s be even more honest here. I’m certainly not defending agents or their minions. Agents are the only group of people who have found a way to be even larger parasites that lawyers, but Saban is the last guy who should be the spokesman for honor and virtue.
