When it comes to conference expansion and radical realignment, Alabama’s Nick Saban says he’s not looking for any say in who the SEC has invited or who it will invite in the future:
“I’ve always said I have tremendous faith, trust and confidence in our administration, our president, Mal (Moore, UA’s AD), and the SEC commissioner to make the decisions about what’s right for the SEC in the future.
It’s like I don’t think it’s my responsibility to change the uniforms around here. It’s not my responsibility to worry about who we decide is the best fit for the SEC in the future in terms of expansion, if that’s the best thing for the league, and I’m not saying that it is or it isn’t. I’m just saying if those people think it is, then they need to make those decisions…
(Adding Texas A&M) does open up a different market to the SEC, so there are positives. I’m sure you could sit down and figure out some negatives if you’re willing to take the time to do it.
But I don’t know a lot about it, to be honest with you. I know these things sort of get decided way above, and I don’t have any favorites.”
Bama’s coach did say that he hopes “the integrity of the rivalries” in the SEC will avoid damage in expansion.
