Nick Saban said during SEC Media Days today that he believes the goal when things go bad should be to work for an improved end… rather than to just dole out punishments. To that end, asked about the Penn State scandal, Saban tossed out the idea that some sort of ticket tax could be levied against the school with that money then going to child abuse funds.
Now, that simple, “here’s a thought” moment is making the national headlines along the lines of “Saban wants Penn State taxed.”
That certainly wasn’t the spirit of the Alabama’s coach’s comments. His point was that if something had to be done, why not do something that would allow the current PSU players to escape penalty and help a good cause.
