Saban Outlaws ESPN

Nick Saban reportedly bans ESPN in his player's hotel rooms.

Most college football fans have seen clips of Nick Saban going off on the media and chastising his players.  Saban doesn’t allow his assistant coaches to talk to the press. It’s clear he wants to be the only voice that represents the University of Alabama football program.

Now, he wants to ensure he’s the only voice his players hear going into the National Title game versus Notre Dame. It’s being reported by ESPN that Saban has blocked their network from being shown in the player’s rooms since Sunday.



There really isn’t a logical reason for Saban doing this other than him being a tyrant.  Most likely, Bama will win the game and this’ll be a funny footnote. But if they lose, I bet Skip Bayless will clown him mercilessly.
