Alabama head coach Nick Saban is never at a loss for words, and he was full of them on Thursday during Day 3 of SEC Media Days at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Ala.
While the Crimson Tide head coach lobbied for nine-game conference schedules and other various changes to the football landscape, he took the time to tweak South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier.
Speaking in the main ballroom, Saban took a shot at Spurrier's choice of head wear, according to Alex Scarborough of ESPN.com.
Saban says he considered wearing a visor but didn't want to end up throwing it. Nice little series of jabs at Spurrier.— Alex Scarborough (@AlexS_ESPN) July 19, 2012
Job well done, Mr. Saban.
The information gathered at SEC Media Days is essentially a non-stop 12-hour stream, and kudos to Saban for providing a little flavor to the proceedings early on Thursday morning.
Should Spurrier take offense?
He's lobbed his fair share of verbal jabs during his two-plus decade tenure as an SEC head coach, some of which were mean-spirited, and some of which were fun.
This was more on the fun side, and that's a side of Nick Saban that we should see more of.
