Love this. Coach Saban has been receiving media requests every week to meet with his quarterback AJ McCarron.
Saban allowed McCarron to speak briefly after a couple of their games this season; but does not regularly allow the media to meet with his quarterback.
Saban's response today was basically: It's my job to decide what's best for our program and I feel that AJ needs to continue to focus on preparing for games. At some point I'll allow you guys to speak with him; but if you keep asking everyday, I'm going to hold him back even more.
Then Saban light-heartedly [we think] added, "I'm not going to pull a Steve Spurrier on you. The best thing to do is let a sleeping dog lie."
