How did Alabama head coach Nick Saban react to being named one of the "Most Disliked People in Sports" by SI.com? The Alabama head coach, who ranked 22nd on the list, claims he didn't even know about it.
"I didn't even know it, so I guess it doesn't really bother me," Saban told reporters in Birmingham on Tuesday.
Of course, Saban did try to defend himself a little.
"Look, I try to do things the right way," he continued. "I have a lot of compassion for people. We do a lot to help other people. We try to provide leadership to help young people have a better chance to be more successful in life. We do a lot for young kids. So, all's we can do is what we can control. What we can control is to try to do things the right way, help other people, have compassion, be a good leader, set a good example, care for other people, which we do, and I feel good about who we are and what we do and how we try to help others.
"If somebody else doesn't feel that way, I guess they're entitled to their opinion."
Saban should at least be happy to know that he didn't rank at the top of SI.com's list. That dubious achievement went to embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. He should be happy in knowing that he is not even the most disliked college football personality on the list. That would go to his offensive coordinator, Lane Kiffin, who ranked 8th. Of course, Saban gave Kiffin his current job, so there's that.
