It Just Means More When Jimbo & Nick Get Pissy In Press Conferences

We’re playing the feud!

In the new age of NIL, it’s the wild west when it comes to NCAA “recruiting.” Money’s out in the open, and college prospects are finally getting what they deserve for the services rendered to their chosen university.

In the ultimate pot calling the kettle black move, two of the college football’s richest coaches from two of the richest universities are now pissing into the wind about it.

On Monday, Nick Saban launched a verbal grenade on the current state of recruiting, singling out ‘ol Jimbo and the boys down at Texas A&M:


Nicky…sweet sweet Nicky. It’s incredible that you can look yourself in the mirror after spewing that garbage. It’s all in the open now baby, just let it fly. We all know everyone’s been dropping bags on recruits for years, now it’s just legal. It’s not the fact that you did it, as everyone else does, it’s the “holier than thou” smear campaign that you never took part in it. Maybe not you directly but, you know what’s going on. We all do.

Jimbo put his big boy britches on in response to Saban; some of the highlights below:

Sheeeeeeeeeesh.

Both of these guys are acting like clowns, including Texas A&M saying Saban “violated SEC Sportsmanship Rules,” and guess what? It’s working. Football is king and the second NBA & NHL Playoffs pick up, baseball gets into the chunk of their season, and the PGA Championship is on, guess what we’re reading about? SEC drama baby.

Alabama and Texas A&M meet up on October 8th this year when the Aggies head down to Tuscaloosa. Probably have to tune in to that one.

I’m in a Glass Case of Emotion

College football fans, we all knew this was coming. The Big 10 and Pac 12 have officially cancelled their football seasons for this fall. At the time of this blog, leagues still moving forward are the ACC, AAC, Big 12, Conference USA, SEC, and Sun Belt.

Mixed emotions here. I love college football as much as anyone, and was really hoping there would be some way to make it work. But, at some point it seemed like a logistical nightmare to try and get a season in with the pandemic. The #WeWantToPlay movement on Twitter has been received loud and clear, but I also understand the university president’s and conference commissioner’s hesitancy to try and make this work.

I think this timely, very recent GIF should sum up how I feel.

RIP to the 2020 college football season.
