    Probably a fluff piece. They'd no more get access to Bama's football program than they would to the White House if they wanted to do something hard-hitting.

    He better hope there's no 60 Minutes curse. Have they done a fluff piece on a college coach since Charlie Weis?

    They called him Saban, the "PERFECTIONIST."

    That he is and that's why he's the best college football coach in America.

    Wow. Just watched the replay online - what I wouldn't give for that kind of discipline and perfectionism at Florida.

    Yep, that was great. The look on the kids face when he turned around was priceless.


    Like him or not Nick Saban is clearly the gold standard of college football coaches now. His drive and demand for perfection is very impressive. This quote of his is spot on!

    It was a good piece. It will be good to see Nick at Thanksgiving again this year.
