Saban, SEC TV & more

Saban already planning for LSU road trip
The Commercial Appeal’s Ron Higgins provides an insight into how methodical Nick Saban can be. Saban’s already holding meetings about road trips. I bet the office staff wishes Saban was out evaluating instead of puttering around the office.

Saban was discussing with his coaching staff just the other day about itineraries of the 2008 road trips, which includes former LSU coach Saban’s first trip back to Baton Rouge on Nov. 8.

“We talk about where we’re staying and who’s going to ride on what bus to the games,” Saban said. “Somebody on our staff — I’m not going to tell who — said, ‘I hate to tell you this, but when we play LSU, ain’t none of us riding on your bus.’ ”

Mark Richt is a good guy
Mark Richt is a model for good behavior. He finds time to do mission work, and visit the troops. I doubt you could find a better individual. And if you doubt Richt’s character, John Adams of the Knoxville News Sentinel provides all the proof you’ll ever need.


Not SEC, but interesting
FSU expects a LOI from the NCAA within the next four weeks over academic fraud, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

    Iam not Bobby Lowder.

    Has anyone seen Phil Marshall lately? He hasnt washed and waxed my car (I mean Bobby Lowder’s car) in 2 weeks!

    I always liked Mark Richt until he sanctioned the behavior at last year’s Florida Game. The word on the street was that he had become soft and he started acting like a Bad Ass Thug with his “Men in Black” routine.
    He got his result – at what moral cost ?

    What? I do not understand this idea that it was thug behavior. No one was hurt in the dancing in the end zone. Everyone would have been praising Saban if the same thing happened with Alabama, myself included. He felt like he needed to get his team motivated. Was it poor sportsmanship? Maybe, but like most things that probably depends on who you were rooting for.

    I am not a UGA fan, but I have heard Richt speak a few times and he comes across as a pretty decent guy who seems to care a lot about his players and the people around him.

    Secondly, what moral cost would you be talking about? This was a football game. He was not sanctioning murder or some sort of atrocity. The idea that people would be enraged because a coach sent some 18+ year old kids to dance on a football field, is laughable. I guess I will save my moral outrage for other things. The idea just seems silly to me.

    I thought what Richt did was pretty cool myself, and I hate grandstanding. He broke up a celebration just the week before in Vandy – the ploy against UF had a real purpose, and it worked beautifully.

    LMFAO — please tell me this isn’t from a bammer poster! Bammers speaking of “moral cost” is a lot like Bill Clinton teaching Sunday school.
