Coach Nick Saban Is Not Worried About SEC’s Code of Ethics


Coach Nick Saban is not one of those guys who worries about what other people are doing. He is much too busy watching over the ship at Alabama to be concerned about the drama surrounding other teams in the SEC, such as Auburn & Mississippi State. Both schools have been mired in the Cam Newton, play for pay scandal & Auburn's Nick Fairley was reported to the SEC office for unnecessary hits in the Georgia on Aaron Murray. If you listen to Saban, he isn't concerned with it at all.

"We're not concerned about what everybody else is doing," he said on the SEC coaches' teleconference today.

"I'm very comfortable with the SEC code of ethics that we have," Coach Saban said. "I'm not in tune to what's going on right now. I'm worried about our team, but I feel the SEC has done a good job in the past of trying to manage compliance issues to hold us all accountable for compliance issues to hold us all accountable for things that we do and make us all responsible for that, and I think there's a tremendous response from every institution to try to do the same thing."

"When you sit in these meetings we have with athletic directors and coaches, we're all trying to get it right. We're all trying to do the right things so we can ...keep the playing field balanced for everybody."

"But things happen in professions that shouldn't happen. That's why we have an NCAA. That's why we have people investigate circumstances and situations. I'm comfortable with the way they do it. That's up to them with what they find and what they decide to do. I have total faith and confidence that they'll do it the right way."

In fact, Coach Saban has one thing on his mind... Georgia State. Tomorrow night, Alabama takes on Bill Curry's first year club and then Nick Saban's focus switches to Auburn.

Why worry about anything else?
