Bama’s Saban Says The SEC Is “More NFL-like”

gfx - they said itAlabama’s Nick Saban has coached in the NFL and in college.  He’s been an assistant and a head coach at both levels.  So when he speaks of the type of football played in the SEC — as compared to that played in the pros — he knows what he’s talking about:


“I think we had 33 guys drafted out of he first 99 in our conference.  Some people say that guys in the SEC have more injury history.  I think it’s the nature of the league, but I also think it’s the reason a lot of guys are getting drafted from our league…

It’s physical.  It’s more bigger guys.  It’s more better athletes.  It’s more NFL-like in terms of what players are going to be expected to do at the next level.  I guess you’ve got to take the good with the bad.”


I think Saban just hit on a good cover for this year’s SEC media guide:  “More bigger.  More better.”



Come on, John, get your gangster on.

Mo bigga mo betta.
