"With Freddie and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio. The ESPN happened Sirius XM Channel 80. So we'll have to ask the question about Nick's saving being the greatest of all time. He's retired that conversation until somebody else comes along, probably 102 100 years, but he's done. That's not not with what's about to happen with name, image and likeness and what's happening with trains. First, you will not be able to do again What next David is doing right now. So yes, so there's this question. How long? How much longer will this go on? Because saving seems to not show any signs at 69 years of age of walking away any time soon. Well, it's interesting because a lot of people will will see next seven last night. He teared up after the game. I thought, you know, Building l produced that game last night for ESPN. There was a montage at the end of the game that I thought perfectly depicted. What Nick Saban was and what Nick Saban is. And you saw Nick statement shed tears after this game last night, but that That national title montage that they showed number one was 2009. If you guys remember that the Rose Bowl Erik Anders and another member of that team doubts Nick Saban with Red Gatorade, and he turned around and gave them a look like If this was an NFL franchise, your ass had been cut right now. How much you make? What position you play harmony snaps. You get what round? You were taken in here to cut him on the spot right there. In there, they would have been gone. That was the look that he gave them. That was what Nick Saban was. Then I think even Nick Saban knows, And I do believe that code was played into this a little bit, but I think he also knows you can't manage a college football team that way right now. I know it's only been maybe 10 years, and it's only been maybe 14 years from when we're actually talking about how he was and how he is, But I think he has the understanding that I can't be the drill sergeant all the time anymore. I can't be the Ruff Ruff tuff Nick Saban all the time anymore because these kids are gonna hit the portal or they're not going to give me the effort that they need to give or they're not gonna go out of their way to protect themselves and wear a mask and socially distance and stay in there. Stay in their apartment to stay away from their families. That's not gonna happen if I treat him that way. I think he has even found that understanding of I have to change a little bit. My personality is gonna have to change them. But some of it might be subconscious. I think that even shows you kind of where we are and just what it means to him and how he has changed. How long can it go on Freddie? I'm not a recruiting exporter recruiting nerve, but the ones that are that I trusted. I talked to will tell you that Alabama just signed what some people believe to be the best recruiting class in history. Not Alabama history. College football history. She's this training slowing down anytime soon, fellas and I've already had people ask me all Georgia. Georgia got J. T. Davis back. George is getting Jordan Davis back in front of Aunt a wife, the best D tackle combination in the country and You got George figures coming back. All these guys are often back in. They want to come back. They could be the other team. I've learned my lesson on that. I don't care how many staff members believe it. I don't care what quarterbacks leaving. Okay, You guys are going to the draft. I don't care. I'm gonna hit the portal. Alabama's the favor in the SEC and one of the favorites for the playoff Then we can start talking about everybody else. Georgia you could be the other one. Alabama is the one heading into 2021. It's that's kid anyway to earthly 2021 look at him. And if there is s O, we got Alabama winning it all right, And then let's get the O best time. Let's go back to dabble, sweetie. About three years ago, right?.

It was actually made the team closer and we became a better team because of some of the disruptions which i was actually surprised to hear but certainly they demonstrate that and the way they compete and play. Adversity can absolutely be a bonding experience. You can see this in boxing latouche championship fighters in a vicious brutal. Fight a grudge match but at the end of the fight they hug it out because you not only go through it against someone you go through with them right and this adversity can do that.

Aaron rodgers the ball and half decade into aaron rodgers career to wait a while it hold that clip for a while. There was no like i wonder. If there's aaron rodgers guys going to pan out no you about rogers. Goth is what he is. He is a solid average. Starting quarterback maybe a tick above average. He has the ability to play very well. Especially if you use play action. He is not a superstar quarterback but who aaron rodgers. Sure is aaron rodgers. You know. I believe mahomes is the best i've ever seen. But he replaced aaron rodgers on my list and i can't really prove it with mahomes in other words anything mahomes can do. Rodgers can do also he can make all the same place all the same throws if i have to choose one. I take mahomes..

Yes. Goes off Morse Code Tornado. Siren. Why not show I do think that like Nick Sabin is definitely like he's worth seven points and yet game. So if they lose by fewer than seven points then I would say this does not count as loss yeah I'd agree. So we have NFL week six, we have no Thursday night football kind of weird I agree with what you said on Wednesday show pf Thi this the way the schedule is working out the surprise football like Monday night, we have another double Monday night. I'm kind of digging that we just have football in random places. It's like looking under the cushions of your couch and finding a football. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Like going into some sweatpants that you haven't worn since last fall thought twelve dollars in sweatpants bills, chiefs exactly. It's Kinda. Cool. I liked the double Monday night games. We do have arch manning playing tonight Oh. Yeah. Archie grandson which further. On. ESPN to walk fuels are take that. Archie. Manning. Is The shadow commissioner canceled Thursday night football. His grandson now gets the spotlight ought to himself and prime time Yup also in Manning News Peyton manning had little picture come out. He's on the beach had six pack. Did you see that no Peyton manning expect? Well, it's funny. You say that because our very own billy football spotted that he's got the cone. Nipples. Means, possible hgh is very own Omaha beach down this week for nipples between Peyton manning and Cardi, B. Yes. Well, NIP are nipples having a moment they are I mean on aggregate they make one perfectly sized nipple. Just. The Nipple Week Way. Let's not shame Cardi B. for Nipples who is when I look at those Nipples I see I saw I didn't look because I'm respectful. I was forced to look somebody showed me screengrabs I look away. I. See Beauty I. See life coming from those nipples. She's got a kid. She breastfeeds Cardi B. by the way. Like we already knew that she was the coolest but the way she handled it being like players fuck up. Like whoops didn't mean that was my fire fest if we can jump to it early I'm just gonNA say Cardi, B. Being back with offset. That's tough for me. Yeah. You need another one. She's got to do I I'm pressed on Carter I need you are you're on Cardi? Bill. Can you give us your update on. peyton manning's nipples billy. Just eating some Swedish fish during the show.

Yeah. He was not looking like a beast that one picture I thought that was a tie well, tiny piece it's. It's also funny that billy assumes that that professional athletes treat like most people treat smoking dope like they get to retire from their jobs now can finally smoke weed and not be drug tested. It's like Peyton manning quits. He's like now I can finally take hgh and reap all the benefits now that I'm no longer. Take. Yes. All right. So what else we got?

"nick saban" Discussed on NewsRadio 1080 KRLD
"We're talking about a virus. We're talking about a pandemic, and if there is no bubble, there are going to be positive tests and there will be cancellations and this is to be expected. Yet for some reason. Nick Saban's positive test is like a surprise. I mean, I guess it shouldn't be. But it is gonna be talking about the most protected human being in the state of Alabama, right? And for him to swab positive right now, just days before facing Georgia. In the biggest game of the year minute. That seems weird to me, even at this time, even with this virus, even during a pandemic, I don't know. It's almost like He like he's Teflon like not saving Nick Saban, get it or anything. But then the fact is, it's not crazy, right? The crazy part was thinking that the SEC was not going to have positive tests that the SEC would not postpone games. There was not going to have coaches missing games because saving is going to miss that game Saturday. When he met with the media via zoom. He said that he had been careful. But last week's road trip in Oxford, Mississippi, might have been where he picked it up. I think assumes you travel, you get exposed to a lot more things and a lot more people. Right? There is something to that. Right? Travel is when you break a routine travel is when you break your personal bubble travel is when you come in contact with much more people. Florida spike in positive tests came for instance, after their trip to Texas A and M But save and also try to make the point. Even though this is coming just days before a massive game against another one of his former assistance, he really has not changed up much at all. I could do absolutely everything here. I'll have the same exact routine and the first thing I'd do on Thursday morning. It's watch the defense records with defense. Then we do two men in two point place. Then I watched what we did against each other with the offense than what's the offensive practice and I watch special teams. And I usually get a little right up for two men to point place for the team. I'll do all those things exactly like I always do it. So I see he's got working. He wants to make sure that nothing changes or as close to nothing is possible. He even went into detail about how he was handling guys who made mistakes in practice, even if he was not physically there. For practice. I wants practice today manager at a phone if I wanted to play repeated, I shouldn't repeat that place on some messed up. So I didn't leave the country earning this right down the street and we have this technology so we were going to do the best we can tow keep everything normal. That's pretty good. I didn't leave the country next saving watching practice. Via video conference and picking up the phone when he's pissed. About a bad rep is a pretty remarkable look. Not quite as insane is, for instance, Hugh Freeze coaching from a hospital bed in a booth in a press box. But this is still pretty good. Like I know everybody is kind of numb to this thing right now, but just go back. 12 months Go back, 12 months go backto last season. What if I told you that Nick Saban would not be on the sideline for the biggest game of the year?.
"nick saban" Discussed on Menace 2 Society Podcast
"So the Tigers are I don't know. In disarray it's major problems in the by you. But the other team is not looking like the usual team that we see is Nick Saban's Alabama. Crimson tide that game. Ole. Miss was. Wow. And I sat there watching I watched the whole thing and then I studied on Sunday what I the whole time I kept saying what conference of my watching Is this the big twelve. One thousand three, hundred, seventy yards of offense. Both teams listeners now both teams had twenty one tackles. There's no wonder why it ended up being sixty three to forty eight. Here's all I do know. Let's I want to talk about what Lane Kiffin did to Alabama. All right the first first to start with the. Pillars on the outside that Alabama has Patrick's retain the second and Joss job were outstanding and they are outstanding. They're two elite corners. Each of them gave up one catch for eleven yards and it was very clear after watching the film lane plan was to ignore the outside receivers don't even try to throw on those corners because he doesn't have the receivers and those kids are phenomenal. So he worked core of Nick Evans defense the middle of the field, the linebackers, the safeties Elijah more and and they're tight end. I talked about Kenny you boa took that job and ran with it. They were eleven for eleven on targets. All of those targets were in the middle of the field for one hundred, forty, three yards for more and seven seven targets for one hundred, eighty, one yards and two touchdowns for your Yobo talked about. Lane Kiffin had a formula. The formula beat Nick Saban and it is no secret. Now it was a secret formula now it's out and about You. GotTa temple the Shit out of them. Make their defense exhausted, run it straight down their throat and what he did for formations he fucked with them up and motioned, and you know he did a great job of having a good plan with formations and motions, but he got him so tired and what happens is you get a team a defense so tired and then you motion a guy traded guy shift a guy who lined up in an unconventional formation they're already exhausted now they have to think about where they line up and what their job is so much going on. And he did it. He just was at their neck and other he did like I said, he kept the ball kept the game in the middle of the field. They're the quarterback Matt Corral attempted three passes outside the Hashes three in the whole game. He was also only blitzed nine times on passing plays. Why did that happen because a temple? They're just trying to get lined up and play defense against that temple. They don't have time to get lined up time up a blitz and change all their roles. That temple is the talent equalizer lane kiffin knew it and he executed it to perfection. Almost they almost one. They had no business being in that Game Matt Carell was five or six thrown against the blitz because it was. So late, it was they they couldn't disguise it temple exposed everything. 'cause tempo offense here's what they do. They create easy throws they minimize blitzes and they equate talent because the defense is gassed and they're all they're worried about getting lined up, just get lined up. So they're not out of position and get creased which that happened to. Ole. Miss ran almost ninety plays. That is not what Nick Sabin wants for his defense I promise you that they only got pressure on Matt Corral three times total.
"nick saban" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Hope you have a good time watching the draft and we appreciate your time as always okay. Dan Thank you take care. That's that's nick. Saban Alabama head coach. Jan just to recap Nick Sabin told us Ten minutes ago he has never sent an email. In this life he has also never sent a text and receives both he just started receiving emails. He's received tax and then he calls the person people are quite bothered by this. Well I like when somebody calls me every time. We'll there times when I don't want to hear from people but it's nice to get a phone call occasionally because my kids once again. I can text them and they'll respond. I call them. They don't answer. This is like saying though you still have dial up or you still flip phone. This is like Angela slip from people are either calling bs or trouble by Nick. Saban saying he does not send anything interesting not know how to respond to it or does he think it's more polite to return the email with phone call. I got the impression he wasn't sure how to actually do the sending of email. I think that that's probably the case I. I don't think he wants to adjust to modern life where you're sending out text all the time and his instagram and his facebook and all of those just. He's what sixty eight years of age? And if he hasn't learned now feel like he unless he's trying to stay in touch with recruits or his players. You know that that's a convenient way of saying. Hey just checking in making sure you're okay because you know I'm I'm the king of very very limited dialogue returning text message. You'll get a thumbs up or the letter. K that is true. Yes yes point but I saw comedian. A few years ago says said that every person eventually gives up on modern technology. They learn nothing else sir. Aj All right. I'm good whatever I've learned so far and beers at Nick Saban. I wonder if he has a person text back for him if he needs to. Not Designated Texter. Yeah like Jerry. Jones has guy does his glasses when he's in the box but that was his son who did his glasses. I think inheritance. Yeah got to do something in that job yes mclovin. It's funny you say like phone calls. Everyone says phone calls are out. People will not talk on the phone. They will only well. I'm talking about my kids. It's nice to get a phone call from my kids. I don't need it that often but like I have one daughter who facetime me all the time and you know. It's great that she does it. It's just you know I. I don't want to be on camera even though it's on just don't want to do it. And then what I do is I put it up to my ear occasionally and I'm on facetime so she'll go dad. I can look in your ear and I'm GonNa go facetime stuff. Yes todd. What about texting from one room to another when you WANNA get up in the middle of something kind of lazy as it gets when you're letting your kid notes dinnertime and they're in? The baseball wasn't but I've done that if they're upstairs and they might not here and then I'll just check so I don't want to walk up the steps but it's not like they're next store like the room twelve feet away. I got to go in there and say Dinner yes I still do. The keep saying their name but just get progressively louder a hundred and fifty times until someone. Here's Karen Karen Karen here. Instead I could just walk into the other room but instead I just yelled name like just go get him. My youngest daughter has the hearing of a dog like unbelievable unbelievable. She can hear all the things that she shouldn't here except for when I call her to do something. And I can't like Molly Amol Moser Molly a molecule and then you realize and then I'd say to my wife. I thought she had great hearing she goes. She's great selective hearing. I could be whispering something about her and then she'll I heard that you can't hear me call her dinner. What'd you say all right? We'll take a break last call phone calls here and what's in store tomorrow? What we learned. I think that's it's enough and by the way. Did you guys see that we have some spaghetti cooking air in the man cave? Did you see the sauce the Sunday gravy? We have a pasta contest that I created yesterday where I said two guys in the bag I brought up a conversation about Sunday gravy and how my mother in Law God rest your soul made absolute delicious under gravy?

"Off your order cow bucker kick ass hats better adventures Jason. We we did talk about an iron bowl that really went to call either iron bowl in game or iron bowl like Mecca Iron Bowl with the iron bowl. The irony bowl the irony bowl we already had suggested a fight twitter for the honky tonk doc over naming this game renaming the twenty nineteen iron bowl that was just the that the highlight of the the many wonderful suggestions that I saw role again via twitter. Bailey thank you. I was Kinda suggest seeing the way it ended with too many bad guys on the field. Nick Sabin Very mad about it we could just call it. Twelve angry men. I like that we had a we had a kick six. We could call this. The the pick twelve kicked pick any any twelve guys and send them all out at once. Twelve man yeah. They're going to sue you. I Call I call. Anchors doesn't call Nick Twelve. I love that Bama which will sorry this. Well I was GONNA say the twelve players of Nixon Dag. Sorry that was everybody saw. That was a city is. I've seen him. It's been awhile since I've seen during that color that makes me fear for a circulatory stereos in the league. I mean I. There is a shade. He turned Oregon sits you freeze in the lead. The last time maybe Chad Kelly made make death Twice everyone saw yeah. I haven't seen Dick. That made no real real time like kind of like a cardiologist. Gets is excited when he sees somebody that color because he's big money right there that's blockage. It's very funny to me that Alabama which is so bad at counting as far you know they have multiple fraudulent went made up fabricated invented. Fictional national title claims that are on the books and here they are missing out on another one because they can't count. It's pretty good. That's pretty good stuff I I. There is a phrase that Nick Saban used in the postseason in the the post game presser. which was that? He felt. The final play was unfair own. The sorry I guess I was. You know we were raised in different areas that I guess that I was just raised to believe the personal responsibility in a statement was not difficult ghouma typical boomer Jay to see it just expected life to be fair. It is typical of his generation to generation that had everything everything handed to them by virtue of large government organizations set up to prop up people just like them that. But that's how that's how you get this kind of entitled adult. I culture expecting things to go your way snowflake behavior seeing a punter wideout not being the process. What was happening? Yeah I do want to point out though that at the end of the game offers wide receiving corps was so banged up going into the game and in even worse shape after after said game that seeing the punter wide receiver. It might have been might have been you know like you might have been part of a plan but it could have been out of sheer necessity like Bam looks over like they got a little white guy number ninety out there. I guess that's next man up. Yeah Gus US meals on Nobel passing probably what they thought. Yeah honesty doesn't I'm sure that they said he's probably transom. High School Bullshit and then they said Oh.

"I just want to run for governor. What happened? Well, I did that for a couple months Paul but mad. The percent chance you go to jail. If you hit that did say that by the way. And other unique to go to jail. You're too honest. Yeah. Yeah. I don't need to do that. Now, my wife a little bad. But how you doing? I n doing great urgent and the other night. I was in Alabama. And it was it was it was talking to a politician who who have had who had had a conversation with you. But I think you're doing better not getting involved in that murky world of politics. Yeah. Man. Man That that is is as as you you think you you think? think? SEC hit coaching. This is politics. And there's a lot of politics in it but land that is I looked at it for about three months after about three months. I said, you know, what if I'm on own get back in the water, and we'll get back into coaching. And so so the name. Do you think you would have been good? Well, you know, I think there needs to be people from other areas not just lawyers politicians that you know to get in it for a living. You know, again, that's reading I looked at it and thought it might be something, you know, I could help with and and at the end of the day when they I was put in. I said, you know, I think she'll do the job. They attacked me to pull on out. Well, let's talk about the college football season. And you certainly have battled Nick Saban on the field and off in. You've also lived in that state and had been able to observe what he's doing right now. Just try to put into context what you've seen through the first nine or ten weeks of this. That's the first ten weeks of this college football season. How good is Alabama? Well, if taken the front outer Paul. Absolutely take. It's it's fun to watch. Because you you, you know, they're going to win. You don't know behind much out. Saturday would be his biggest test simply for the fact that the LSU had some momentum. And you know, that they beat the heck out of out of Georgia and they had with coming to their place. And everybody's saying I'm ahead to played anybody as good as LSU and the one question Mark are had was defense. LSU's not great on offense. You know, they're struggling they don't have the athletes that they'll have an years they continue to earth. But then I was domination. They're front four remind me of our mind thing here's ago when I worked for me, we never had the fluids. We never had the rush with four guys. There's nobody could flocks and mixed. Got it the same way there. Now, they they're just rolling them defense. And you don't have to talk about the offense it they he's changes philosophy with his quarterback. And then. You know, they're going to school in the thirties. At least most of the time. I most anybody they've placed so it's really become unfair and taken all the fun of November in the championship game. And even I just I don't see anybody unless it's gonna be Clinton that might have a chance to play with four weeks ago. And in having answer circle the wagons. But man, they're good. As was seen as they've got running backs. They've got off into blind is getting better and better, and they pretty much stayed healthy. So you know, you know, they uneasily skipping in. You know, I'm I love to watch college football people, and I don't get to how one one team, but this proved now they're they're they're unbelievable. And I mean, this has been going for for some time now and let me try to put you in Nick Sabin shoes for a moment. I I'm running out of words to describe him as you have. But at this point what what else does he have to accomplish coach? I mean, let's say wins another championship here. Do you think? He just keeps keeps racking them up, or or do you think something else interest in whether I mean, they're all kinds of reports out there that that somebody will make another run at him from the NFL by giving him a piece of a franchise. I mean, these are all rumors, and nobody really knows whether he would do that or not you take to leave to behind..

I rolls and the occasional dressing-down of his team to the media and not to mention more than a few national championships. That's the amount of Nick Sabin that most people get to see. But as these fourteen stories will tell you this far more deaths than humanity than meets the eye stick around after the story for my conversation with ESPN senior writer, Kevin van Valkenburgh as we talk about how famously hard coach has been a great person right under our noses. Now we present Nick Sabin is more than a scowl by Kevin van Valkenburgh. Nick Sabin is more than a scowl. The most powerful man in college football raises a skeptical eyebrow when he, here's the question. His glare feels like it could crack one of the crystal trophies in his office. Two seconds of silence passes. It feels like two minutes. What is something Nick? Sabin thinks people get wrong about Nick Saban. Finally, a hint of a smile creeps across his face. He removes his reading glasses and folds his hands in front of his Chan interlocking his fingers. One of the things that bothered me a little through the years is I don't think the perception that people have of me as a coach is really truly who I am as a person Sabin says, I'm always portrayed as the tough grinding working hard guy, and I think those things are true, but there is more than that, and I don't think people realize that after winning two hundred eighteen games and six national championships after spending more than a decade as the men, everyone in the sport is both chasing and trying to emulate. It would be easy to assume Sabin at sixty six years old does not see flaws in his own methods but ask him if there is anything he wishes he could change about himself, animals it for a full beat. I always pray that I won't get angry. He says, because most of the time when I get angry. Or emotional. I don't make good decisions. Sometimes I appear to be angry as a coach, but I'm not really angry people don't remember what you say. They remember how you made them feel. I think I've gotten a little better at that, but there is definitely room for improvement. The more questions you ask the more it's apparent that yes, there are things that people get wrong about Nick Sabin. Yes, there are the requisite tales of Sabin snarling a player for missing a block or at an assistant coach for what he believes was a boneheaded play call. But those might be the least interesting tales. Anyone can tell about Alabama's, mercurial coach, the best Nick Sabin stories like the fourteen that follow do more than eliminate. They offer context complexity and humor to a story of a man. So relentlessly focused on what's next. It's easy to overlook how we got here. It's December in miss Hillman skis, eighth grade music class in Mananga, West Virginia with the semester, winding down all students in the class are required to get up and sing a solo as part of their final project. Sabin age fourteen refuses. I was so shy. I just wouldn't do it. He says, I got a D. And music saban's father big, Nick stern, hot tempered. Disciplinarian who has been working at the family owned gas station every minute that he's not in school or playing sports. Tell Sabin. He is done playing basketball for the season. I still remember my mom folding my uniform up and taking it back to school save says. But the real lesson is still to come Mananga like many tiny towns in West Virginia as a mining community, and every kid who grows up around coal miners sees the toll. The grueling work takes on the people who go down into the mines each day one afternoon shortly after say. Evans grades come in big, Nick arranges for a coal miner to take him and his son into a nearby mine saban's father waits until they reached the bottom to deliver the message. If you don't get good grades, this is where you're going to end up working for the rest of your life. As they begin the slow elevator climbed the surface Sabin has one thought, and it has stayed with him all of his life. I'm never coming back down here again. At some point during savings, tenure as Michigan state's defensive coordinator, a job he holds from nineteen eighty three to eighty seven.

They are so invested in making their points that they don't notice when a man walks into the bar with his shotgun and robs the place they had no idea, never saw him. Never paid attention and never stopped doing what they were doing. Says Kentucky coach, Mark stoops, who relates the story he's heard passed down through the years. A few minutes later.

"Booger we all know what the noise is and everyone other than you seemingly has made a decision that it's not going to be jalen hurts and can nick sabin keep everyone happy though is the question he doesn't have to keep it what happened paul when you want sick nestle championship that's with nick saban does what he wants to do like he could he could okay the gal to street and put him at quarterback as long as he's co saving there it doesn't matter because he is he has earned the right to make any decision he wants to people in alabama around the country to realize that and stop asking all these because he doesn't care what everyone else thing i think he's under right to be able to make those decisions and do whatever he thinks his best football team now they're going to be people like you and i want around the country who thinks that too should be playing because he gives his team the best chance to move the football through the air what about the ability to be physically run the football that's what this conference is about and i understand that i just quarterback competitions a lot closer than everyone else thinking and i think everyone is saying off debt to throw it he's the guy co savings look different and i think that tailing understand that and i think that the comments made by taylor day don't reflect salem they reflect they reflect a parent that wants kids to play and so i think they understand that i think he was blindsided by those comments when it's all set think jalen into battle throughout camp and i think nickel wind up playing both of them but the guy that starts to got it performs best on kim talking too far when booger.
