All sorts of cool Saban stuff...
Coach Saban is, of course, in no hurry to finish putting together his coaching staff, he said Wednesday. A couple of possibilities for offensive coordinator could possibly be looking at other jobs: Jason Garrett is a candidate at LSU (the Dolphins denied the Browns' request to talk to him), and Major Applewhite is also a candidate at LSU for OC, and also a candidate to replace Todd Graham as head coach if he were to leave to coach Tulsa.

Saban also talked about Joe Kines a little bit yesterday in the Huntsville Times. He said he has a lot of respect for Joe and would like for him to remain here at the University, but it has to be something that works for Joe. Coach Kines is going to be around a while, I would imagine.

Cecil Hurt wrote a great article today in the Tuscaloosa News talking about Coach Saban's use of time, etc etc. He really liked how he handled the press conference yesterday. He also discussed all of the recruiting talk that was done and how Coach Saban is handling previous commitments to the school. touches on the new Vegas mentality of the team - What happens in the locker room, stays in the locker room. Good article about how much things are changing in Tuscaloosa already. It's only been one week and Coach Saban has completely changed EVERYTHING about the football program - from how press conferences are handled, to how information gets out, to what happens in the locker room.

Kevin Scarbinsky wrote a telling article in the Birmingham News regarding how basketball has, once again, taken a backseat to football. But Gottfried, of course, can handle it. Good interview quotes. has a good article about how coaching means everything in college football nowadays. More justification for Saban's hiring.

Andy Newberry at the Decatur Daily proves to be a jackass.

Nick Saban will be on for ESPN's The Interview on Sunday night Sportscenter for the next two weeks. Some excerpts from the interview with Chris Mortensen can be found here.

I'll have more throughout the day.
