With another SEC Media Days in the books, a rather interesting article surfaces today about how all the coaches did. Interestingly, the thought is that Robbie Caldwell stole the show at his first…and likely his last…SEC Media Days.
Here are some highlights:
3. Nick Saban (Alabama) – Gave the media exactly what it wanted: juice. Anytime the defending national champion coach describes agents as “pimps” the media will react. Saban was a little dry (as always), but the way he blasted agents and downplayed the title talk were rather impressive. The buzz surrounding Saban was also fascinating, as fans flocked to him like he was giving out free money. (He didn’t.)
12. Gene Chizik (Auburn) – You know when they call a coach no-nonsense? That is Chizik, who offered no humor (and no attempts at humor). His lengthy explanation about developing a long-term plan in a short-term league had us yawning. He had the longest opening statement of the week and lost us shortly after “Good morning.”
