How will Saban handle the arrests?

WVUA interivewed LSU beat writer Glen Guilbeau about Nick Saban’s discipline while coaching at LSU. According to Guilbeau, Saban established himself as strong disciplinarian in 2002 when he disciplined a starter during the middle of the season. Guilbeau also indicated Saban wasn’t always forthcoming with information about players who got into trouble—imagine that, Saban not voluntering information to the press!

Guilbeau also said Saban used a novel way of teaching players through requiring them to ride along with police during the hours of 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. Saban used a team-led disciplinary advisory board while at LSU.

According to multiple reports, Saban may not even address the situation until after the SEC’s media days next week.

I don’t think Saban will wait that long. I expect some word from Saban to filter out sooner rather than later. Of course, I base that estimate on nothing solid—more opinion than anything else. Wouldn’t that make the most sense to have addressed the topic prior to SEC Media Days? Getting it out of the way before you sit down with the press and are more or less forced into dealing with the discipline question in a less-than-ideal venue?

Michael Vick was indicted Tuesday for his alleged involvement in a dog fighting ring. The indictments came down after months of investigation.

The Atlanta Falcons should terminate its relationship with Vick immediately.
