    I predict this will be one of the most clicked-on threads. There will be many who will click on it ready to blast you. I know I was.

    i guess it shows how secondary sports can play in the game of life.
    I have a little tradition that humbles me as a man, that lets me know that Im a part of the field, a part of the game and its the very bottom as well as the very top and it could be all over the Internet, but, you know what? You should have seen some games before this. I tell you one thing. The grass at Tiger Stadium tastes best.

    explain this: You applaud Saban for being totally focused on the FB team no PR or anything remotely friendly just win & you like him

    yet you praise Richt and Fulmer for doing work which has nothing to with winning FB games except show them in a positive light which could help them in the PR area. I know these two are 100% sincere in their good work, though

    So would you prefer Saban have a human side like those two or keep tuning everything out & just do what he was hired to do.

    Do you think a major college football coach has some responsiblities that go deeper than winning games

    Wouldn't you be proud to have a coach that does these sort of things..?

    Not intended as a Saban dig, I am only asking if winning is all that really matters

    BTW: If Saban did something like that the media would probably twist it and wind up trashing him for it or something

    I think we don't know Saban well enough to judge him. He came out quickly during the Enterprise tornados, as I'm sure he has done in other crisis situations; and I have a feeling that he doesn't treat worthy causes like he does the media. Just because the media calls him heartless doesn't make it so.

    Nick and Terry have already started a scholarship fund at Alabama, that's just one of the first things that came to my mind I'm sure there are others given time to think about it.

    As for Fullmer, I don't care if he saved 100 puppies from drowning until he does something for Alabama or admits he did wrong I hope he rots in hell.

    Re: UT's Fulmer not all bad....

    I agree was only asking if we would prefer a coach that does those kind of things.

    I am 100% ceritian Saban would do the same as Fulmer has done - not so sure he would do the same as Mark R but I think that Saban would step up if called on in that situation.

    I am naive and think that most 'prominent' people will help in those situations.

    just really messsin with the folks that say the only thing that matters to them is Saban winning games. Saban is not the devil that he has be portrayed as being.

    Nope I applaud Fulmer for his efforts to help but hope he loses every single game.

    A lot of this Saban is evil and never does anything for anyone but himself mumbo jumbo is really blown out of proportion. So he doesn't like to spend his free weekends speaking to the red elephants club and he doesn't provide and endless supply of assistant coaches and players for media outlets to misquote. Does that really make him such a bad person?

    Re: UT's Fulmer not all bad....

    Most of the complaints I've seen about coach Saban aren't that he's some evil person but rather that 1. He lied to the media about his future with the dolphins, and 2. He doesn't provide much access to his program because he thinks it's important for everyone to stay on message. So, he's a bit of a control freak and he didn't want to spend entire press conferences at Miami addressing rumors and this makes him an evil person? It's almost as if the media has conned everyone into thinking that coach Saban is some horrible self-centered megalomaniac that only thinks of himself and would never stoop to helping others. I've never seen any evidence to suggest anything of the sort. Honestly, I'm not sure where everyone is getting that.

    I did not and will not read the link about Fulmer and I agree 100% with bayoutider.
