Nick Saban to Alabama

Nick Saban's decision to return to the SEC at Alabama reminded me of a great quote from Michael Lewis' recent book, "The Blind Side."

In comparing Saban to Tennessee Head Coach Phil Fulmer (both of whom are recruiting the main character of Lewis' book), the recruit's adoptive mother says:
'The difference between Phil Fulmer and Nick Saban was the difference between dealing with the town mayor and dealing with the White House.'

Watch out Auburn. (And Tennessee)
