Staff Report
(July 18, 2014)

HOOVER – Alabama head coach Nick Saban sat down in front of the reporters in the Internet/Radio room at SEC Media Days on Thursday and was promptly asked for his “vision” of the future of college football.

In the past, the game’s most recently successful coach would have reeled off several ideas about what he wants to see changed, which he eventually did.

First, he opened with a greeting and hopes for those in the room.

Relaxed Nick Saban seems to have a lesser edge, at least in July. Maybe becoming a new grandfather has something to do with it.
