Saban, not paper, at fault

A few days ago a caller wanted to know why there weren’t any Alabama articles about spring practice. If you didn’t know by now that Nick Saban runs a tight — if not the tightest — ship in regards to information about his players, I want to know what desert island you’ve been stuck on. The reason you don’t see much about Alabama is because Saban won’t let anyone talk to his players or watch his practices. In fact, you should consider yourself lucky you got stats from last week’s scrimmage. It’s unbelievable that someone would complain about this and think it’s the fault of the newspaper and not the coach.
