    SABAN'S ARROGANCE

    Sorry, this may turn your stomach!

    TUSCALOOSA | Alabama head football coach Nick Saban ontinues his whirl-wind courtship with the Crimson Tide faithful in person and on the air waves.

    State-wide stable, Paul Finebaum ended his 13-year affiliation with WERC-AM this week with a three-hour call in show with Saban. Finebaum has agreed to a three-year contract with Citadel Broadcasting, which owns WJOX.

    Finebaum's last show on WERC, Saban presented a confident, personable style, punctuated with good-natured barbs at Auburn, Mississippi State, and saving his strongest lines for his former employer, LSU.

    Finebaum's show airs from 2-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and is also carried on about 20 other stations, mostly in Alabama, under the banner of the Paul Finebaum Radio Network.

    Finebaum's show was previously heard in Tuscaloosa on WTBC 1230AM, where it will still be aired. Officials with WTBC did not return a phone call Friday.

    "I'm sure the SEC hasn't changed much over the past two seasons. I mean Mississippi State is still funding scholarships by collecting pop bottles and aluminum cans along the highways," said Saban, half jokingly Friday afternoon. "Auburn, our motto --'Where most coaches are fired' -- is still
    in effect."

    "LSU was nothing before I arrived. Academically, athletically, physical plant, nothing. I made LSU. I was LSU. Their current success is solely due to my recruits. Coach Miles, while a fine man, does not fill my shoes, fit my desk, or cast a taller shadow. Our coaching staff is superior to anything in Baton Rouge. We will go into Louisiana an take each and every player we want. LSU will not, nor can not stop me. Mark my words."

    Finebaum point blank asked Saban if those comments mean LSU is a bigger foe than Auburn, a team that has dominated the Crimson Tide in recent years.

    "No. Auburn is in-state. They are consistently the best team in the West,which speaks to the talent in Alabama. As talent I recruited graduates from LSU, after this season, they will return to the loweer depths of this league."

    When pressed about his initial comments about LSU "being special", Saban rejoined, "It was special. I won a title there. But LSU fans focus is on the pre-game party aspect. Winning the party is paramount there. Seven-win football and winning baseball will keep them happy."

    Currently there is a controversy regarding Saban's comments about the staff at LSU to previously committed Tiger recruits. In visiting Curtis star Joe McKnight, Nick Saban has created a stir while visiting LSU commitments Phelon Jones, a cornerback from McGill-Toolen High in Mobile, Ala., and Luther Davis, a defensive end from West Monroe.

    According to both prospects, Saban took credit for LSU's recent success as he signed most of the players involved in the Tigers' 22-4 run since he left.

    Neither player agreed to take a visit to Alabama, though, and refused to de-commit from LSU.

    "Great guy, but he is a little bit overconfident," Jones' father Tony is quoted as saying at Tigerbait.com.

    Saban also got a no from Davis in West Monroe.

    "He (Saban) was kind of mad that we turned down the visit and turned down the scholarship," Davis told Tigerbait.com. "He said that there is no way that the coaching staff at LSU can compare to the coaching staff we have at Alabama right now. He gave no credit to anyone."

    "I don't think the LSU coaches are upset with Saban," according to Mike Scarborough of Tigerbait.com. "It probably just makes them very motivated to out-recruit him. I think they also think it's unbelievable some of the things he is saying about LSU.

      I think its hilarious as well. Cant wait til November when we play him again. It will be a bloodbath.

      Its also funny that he tried to get 2 guys to de-commit from LSU and they turned his sorry ass down.

      Big time Thank You to BoneKrusher!

        No it's funny that he called the rest of the SEC out like that. I could really care less about any of the teams, but he did build LSU into a powerhouse when previously they were a decent team, but certainly not amongst the ranks of Auburn and Alabama. To say he's "sorry" is being bitter. Maybe he's bitter too...but at least he's funny.

          wow, he is an idiot. He should realize how obviously stupid and arrogant it is to make those comments. He really is just supporting those he hate him for the way he has performed/left every program he has worked at.

            To say LSU was nothing and will soon be nothing again is very funny. LSU will be a powerhouse for years to come. Miles is recruiting better than Saban ever did and coaching better than Saban ever did. Cant wait to tear his ass up when he comes back to Baton Rouge next season.

            Big time Thank You to BoneKrusher!

              I totally agree.

              I can't wait to watch some SEC football this year. It's going to be great.

                Luther faked going to a funeral and went and took a visit to Bama and some friends told some friends and it got back to Miles. Miles pulled Davis' scholarship when he found out that Luther lied to him and Davis then committed to Bama.

                It's cool because we signed Sidell Correly (sp) after he decommitted from UF.

                  I don't know about all of that. Miles right now is just recruiting off reputation. Reputation that Saban built. Saban is cocky but he is right. I actaully like the guy. His way or the highway. All the best coaches are like that. You guys probably will beat Alabama bad this year. But give it time when Saban gets all of his guys in there.
