Nick Sabanâ€™s March 24 Return to Practice press conference video:
Saban subscribes to a newspaper, and reads it! This shocking revelation came during his Monday press conference.
â€œThey didnâ€™t even deliver me a paper yesterday at my house, so I didnâ€™t even get to read it,â€ Saban said. â€œI had to watch ESPN to find out who won the basketball games on Saturday.â€
Unfortunately, Saban doesnâ€™t read the Internet. I was hoping he read regularly, but that isnâ€™t the case. Alas, Iâ€™m crushed. He is really missing out!
In case you are interested, Saban doesnâ€™t watch Dancing with the Stars.
Saban and the press talked about dancing and one of Sabanâ€™s favorite players Jason Taylor, who is on the show this season. Saban revealed he could dance good enough to get a dateâ€”otherwise, he wouldnâ€™t have ended up married.
â€œWe all grew up dancing. When I grew up if you couldnâ€™t dance, you couldnâ€™t get a date,â€ Saban said.
â€¨Football was also covered at the Monday press conference.
The team had nine days off due to spring break, but Nick Saban was happy with the teamâ€™s retention from the first two days of Spring Practice.
The two biggest elements were the return of Luther Davis and a Zeke Knight update.
Davis returned to practice after dealing with personal issues. â€œHe is day-to-day,â€ Saban said. â€œWe will try to support him and help him academically and athletically, and work through any issues or problems that he is dealing with personally.â€
Knight has not been cleared yet.
â€œHe has not done much of anything,â€ Saban said. â€œFrom a cardiovascular standpoint…he is still very limited.â€
Saban also ran down the rest of the minor injuries. See the video for all the details on who is wearing a black shirt.
Saban was also asked about Les Miles new status as the highest paid coach in the SEC.
â€œI could care less,â€ Saban said. â€œIâ€™m really pleased and happy for any coach that does well in this profession, and Les Miles has done an oustanding job. He won the national championship. He has done a fantastic job with the record he has had since he has been there.â€
