    These are my sentiments exactly.

    While I think it's great for a coach to man up and refuse to kiss any other coach's six o'clock, I would prefer that my coach not stoop to the level of name calling and acting like a 13-year old Bunker poster.

    As a famous and well loved man once said, "Act like you've been there."

    I don't have a problem with him taking a jab. No big deal. My issue is how weak the jab was. Spurrier needs to give him a few lessons.

    He called CNS and apologized. Link

    “Obviously, tremendous respect for Coach Saban,” Franklin said. “I just got off the phone with him. Tremendous respect for them. I’ve got tremendous respect for what they’ve done. Everybody is chasing them. The guy has won three or four national championships.


    “(I was) really talking about the work ethic that he has a reputation for, and that we’re going to outwork them. I made a joke. And in today’s society with all the media and social media and people with tape recorders and things like that, that doesn’t come off that way. I know people have tremendous pride in Alabama, and their fans are fanatical. So I understand. But it was a joke and I didn’t mean to offend anybody.”

    Ditto this. I thought the same thing and you'd think that you could expect a little better from an educated grown man. Very immature, childish statement and name calling. Come on, Tony! You can do better, Err, can you?

    The real joke: 'outwork them'. Outwork CNS? In what universe?

    '3 or 4 NCs'. Study up dude. Everybody knows 'Nicky' has four of them with more on the way.

    Using the word satan is a pretty poor attempt at a joke no matter who the person or how similar the name sounds. An 'F' for disheveling also.

    Immature & silly... the sort of comment that Saban himself will never make.

    Re: Vanderbilt’s James Franklin calls Saban “Nicky Satan”

    We once had a coach who called our main rival as a "Cow College". So I'm not getting too upset about this.

    Re: Vanderbilt’s James Franklin calls Saban “Nicky Satan”

    I think the main issue (with me at least) has nothing to do with it from an Alabama standpoint. But from a Vanderbilt standpoint. This cat needs to realize he's considered a professional. He gets paid like one. The people paying him are professionals as well. He is representing more than just himself or even his football team. He is representing a university. A well respected academic university at that. I don't think they want this type of image being conveyed. There are ways to joke and this wasn't one of the better choices to pick from.

    Crazy a guy who coaches for a school that isn't even in the SEC would even be discussing Alabama and Coach Saban.

    Oh what's that...

    Vanderbilt is in the SEC East???

    You have got to be kiddin' me!!

    When did that happen...
