Hoover, Ala: Count Nick Saban among those who can’t predict the impact of the many recent changes in college athletics, including the ability of players to make money from their brand.
I almost feel that anything I create is wrong, because even though some of the things we create have good prospects, there is no precedent for its consequences, ”the Alabama coach said Wednesday at the Southeastern Conference media days. Whether some of these are good or bad, there is no precedent for the consequences they are going to create. “
Soap figures that he will now better deal with the impact of such changes on college football and players for a year now.
Speaking at a conference of the Texas High School Coaches Association a day earlier, he said the new startup quarterback Price Young is approaching 1 million in name, pictures and similar money.
Fisher VS. Saban
Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher has no regrets about knocking down Alabama while Saban was coach.
Fisher, a former Saban assistant, was asked at the Houston Touchdown Club in May about the key to beating the Crimson waves apart from Saban’s retirement. Fisher’s smile, according to The Houston Chronicle: We’m going to beat his ass even when he’s hesitant there.
What was here, wasn’t it? Is that why everyone is here? Fisher said. “That’s what makes this league this league. That’s what we expect to do at Texas A&M. Having said all that, Nick and I are friends.
We have known each other for a long time. We trained together. If anything makes sense, they are from the same world.
Alabama, the only team to beat Aggies last season, won 52-24 and eventually knocked them out of the playoffs. Saban is 23-0 against the former assistants.
Saban has won six national titles in Alabama and seventh in LSU. Fisher was his offensive coordinator with the Tigers for that 2003 title squad.
I have great respect for what Fisher, who won a national title in the state of Florida in 2013, did and did. Quality and quality is what you have to play with.
Mississippi State Coach Mike Leach supports an extension of the NCAA competition for college football playoffs.
The CFP is considering expanding to four to 12 teams, half of which will come from high-scoring conference champions and the other half from big selections.
I think 12 teams is a big step in the right direction, Leach said. I personally like to look at 64, you can format it very easily, but I think this is a big step right direction, I look forward to it.
Leach deviated from the rules of the media days and avoided the initial statement that most of his colleagues used to discuss their teams. Some practitioners talk for 20 minutes before taking questions.
I’m not a big start report guy, and you’re going to hear what you want to know somehow, so let’s go ahead and start, Leach said. Any questions?
Leach also declined to say whether he was vaccinated against COVID-19.
New Vanderbilt coach Clark Lea brought evidence of his relationship with the university: the helmet from the days he played with Commodore. It was at a table near the stage when he addressed reporters.
ID always dreamed that my football helmet would one day end up in the Hall of Fame, Leah said. Unfortunately, from here on out, I did not achieve that level of performance, but I am glad to have old head gear with me in my first media day experience.
Leah, a former Notre Dame defense coordinator, had a full background for two seasons at Vanderbilt, where she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He keeps the helmet in his office in the cart.
It’s a connection to my time as a student-athlete இரண்டு Two things I celebrated as a student-athlete, but things that came back to change what it means to play football in Vanderbilt, Leah said. Keeping that reminder close is, again, another way to keep my focus on what is most important.
