I joked about Tim James the other day and suggested a tongue-in-cheek strategy to extricate his foot from his mouth.
Reality isn’t that far removed.
… James was asked about the Tide tempest during a news conference in Mobile.
“I have one thing to say about that,” James said in response to my question. He reached beneath the podium and pulled out a red-and-white “Saban Rules” cap, donning it with a flourish.
“Let the record show that I believe Nick Saban is one of the greatest — if not the greatest — coaches in America,” James said. “I support him 100 percent.”
I wasn’t kidding when I posted this header.
