Nick Saban, as you might imagine (not that it takes much imagination), isn’t too fond of the new transfer rules.
“It’s a pretty slippery slope, not just for seniors but for all players on a team,” Saban said on Wednesday’s SEC conference call. “We have a responsibility and an obligation as coaches that have programs that we support the players and help them be successful, personally, athletically and academically.
“And then they have an obligation on their side of it to play.”
You left out “for me”, Nick.
This isn’t indentured servitude. If you want your kids to stick around, you’d best come up with some means of making them want to stick around. Otherwise, they’ll pursue that obligation to play somewhere else.
