Wrong link. It takes you to a week old story about LSU and UT, not a link to Saban's press conference.

You have to give Saban credit, he sure knows how to handle the media.

Just goes to show you, the etymology of s**t is not French. Saban does know football though.

It's amazing how these sports writers, who have "college educations" can't think of decent questions to ask while attending a press conference.

Note his last comment "This is a big game for me". Saban not dismissing the Vols, nor should the Vol faithful. Go Vols!

He's definitely not a traditionalist. He probably would prefer playing Missouri to us, anyway. Go Vols! Beat Bama! SAVol

As much as I dislike saban, I can't blame him for cussing. They were asking him some stupid questions.
I'll file this one under "BFD".
