Buy Alabamian.

Nick Saban is now dispensing economic wisdom.

University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban will appear in a new Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama commercial that begins airing this week.

In the 30-second spot that will air on TV via WVUA, Charter and Comcast cable and on local radio stations, Saban says that the quickest way to rebuild a local economy enduring an economic recession and a devastating natural disaster is to shop locally.

Too bad he doesn’t follow his own advice when it comes to recruiting.

“We want to help him become a head coach. That’s our job.”

Todd Grantham has dreams, man.

“First of all, I like the job I have; I enjoy being the defensive coordinator at Georgia,” Grantham told me in an interview earlier this week. “I enjoy coordinating and I enjoy football in general. But I think any time you’re in a profession, you’re always looking to take on the next challenge. What’s the next challenge? Being a head coach is obviously a challenge. It’s something I would like to do in time. But I’m not looking to do it right now. Those things kind of come. I think it’s important you do a good job with the job that you have and, if you do that, that creates opportunities.”

If he gets his shot, I hope he’s better at it than VanGorder was.

I don’t want to live in a world where Zooker wasn’t Croom’d.

The next time someone points to this blog as proof that I have too much time on my hands, I’m showing him this.
