    At this point, any reporter who thinks Saban likes playing these teams which Bama totally outclasses is either willfully ignorant or outright stupid. Either way, I don't feel bad that he got blasted for the ridiculous question.
    its not a question of feeling bad ... when i listened on radio it seemed innocent question.
    But more than that he was just itching to blow up is how I felt

    Also it was not simple math on Oline. I was under impression they are trying dickerson at center not that they were forced to.

    Re: Did not like CNS antics in pressconf after game

    Something I have learned in life. Let me preface this comment with the statement that I attend church every time the doors are opened and hold Christian values. However: I do not want a Sunday School teacher for a Lawyer, elected official, policeman, coach or any other thing which I am dependent on them for protection and or/service. I want the lawyer, official, policeman, coach & etc. to fight down and dirty for me. Now if the other side is using Sunday School teachers then, fine, I will too. So while I don't always like the words I see and hear coming from the GOAT I don't complain cause he ain't my SS teacher.
    I do not believe in atheists, therefore they do not exist.

I follow pretty closely and I didnt know Chris Owens was injured. Also it was valid question since they were shuffling on Oline due to Duke ineptitude.

    MAybe he was angry with how the game went or something
    Here's what people don't understand. Having to answer questions almost immediately after a game and doing it without given a chance to decompress is not the best of ideas if you're looking for professional and cordial responses. It's the nature of the beast. It's why even on the very amateur, waaaaaaay down the competitive list of sports, that is youth baseball. We have a team rule that no parent is to approach any coach after a game to discuss an issue. Wait until the next day when the coach has a chance to decompress and both can be in a position to respond when emotions aren't running full throttle.

    Actually he disapproved of my work, so much so that he disciplined me. My punishment, 20 minutes on the treadmill.. So I gotta go...🤪

    You would think they could come up with better questions. How many times do they ask any coach, "What can you learn from a game like this?" If you can't come up with better questions or continue to ask rhetorical questions don't ask any at all.

    You could see it coming from the start of the press conference. He is always more on edge in games like these.

    FIFY.

    Then they ask about the students leaving early....................on a day people are passing out in the stands. Sorry, the whole thing was bush league. They just wanted some negative headlines to run with.
    As I say, we tried to remove the tusks. But they were embedded so firmly we couldn't budge them. Of course, in Alabama the Tuscaloosa, but that is entirely ir-elephant to what I was talking about.

    It would be funny if Saban answered "I learned that you will ask me the same question over and over"

    The "what can you learn" question was perfectly innocuous - not a stupid question.

    When you ask "What CAN you learn from a game like this?" you are insinuating, "Why did you play this extremely weak team and what was the point? ". If you ask "What DID you learn today from this game?", you are asking a more direct question about the team and their performance in that game. You get a response like you did from the "Scheduling" question with the former question.

    The Nick Saban Presser is a phenomenon. I love them can't really imagine any Tide fan not loving every minute of them.
