    I bet Coach Saban laughed when he heard it. To be the best, you have to beat the best. When Coach Franklin beats Coach Saban, he'll be worth a listen. Otherwise just see it for what it is, one coach making a lighthearted joke about another coach. Spurrier has made millions doing the same thing.
    The best thing to ever come out of Tennessee...I-65 heading south.

    Coaches, even the CEO types, are still coaches and their "off-the-record" humor is still pretty close to playground/locker-room because it's all they've ever known. Musicians, racers, and school teachers also fall into this '"Juvenal-outlook-forever" because something inside never quite grows all the way up.
    Ya got to add Policemen and Lawyers to the guys with 'Droll Humor'.
    Sometimes if it wasn't for 'Gallows Humor', we'd have no humor at all.

    (May be because we share the same clientele.)

    Sorry Earl and any other 'Legal Beagle' I just offended.
    It's sometimes too easy to offend now days.

    I am weary of reading on this board, which I do daily, the use of class, classy, classless or a relative facsimile thereof, on the Bama board.

    Please find another word to describe folks on this board or from other boards.

    I prefer cretins and thugs.

    Saban was probably more irritated by having to stop what he was doing to take time to accept a silly apology than he was by being referred to by a silly name. His time is valuable, and Franklin's reference (will work as hard as...) just shows that Saban is the standard by which the rest measure themselves.
