Nick Saban doesn’t care what Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has to say or tweet.
He made that perfectly clear to ESPN’s Chris Low following Harbaugh’s shot at the Alabama coach on Tuesday.
“I don’t really care what he thinks or tweets. I say what I think is best for college football and the players,” Saban told Low.
Speaking at the SEC spring meetings on Tuesday, Saban discussed satellite camps, comparing them to the “Wild Wild West.”
“I’m not blaming (Michigan coach) Jim Harbaugh,” Saban told reporters. “I’m not saying anything about it. I’m just saying it’s bad for college football. Jim Harbaugh can do anything he wants to do. I’m not saying anything bad about him, if he thinks that’s what’s best. There needs to be somebody who looks out for what’s best for the game, not what’s best for the Big Ten or not what’s best for the SEC or not what’s best for Jim Harbaugh, but what’s best for the game of college football.”
“The integrity of the game. The coaches, the players and the people that play it. That’s bigger than all of this. That’s what somebody should do. Now, who is doing that? I don’t know because right now since we have the Power 5, everybody is politicking for what they want for their conference. That’s why I said there needs to be a college football commissioner.”
Like clockwork, Harbaugh responded with a cryptic tweet later on in the day.
"Amazing" to me- Alabama broke NCAA rules & now their HC is lecturing us on the possibility of rules being broken at camps. Truly "amazing."
