“I have enough on Saban right now.”
In a rambling, ranting interview on KDKA in Pittsburgh this morning, sports agent Ralph Cindrich accuses Mark Emmert of corruption and says he was out to get Penn State.
But he also said “I have enough on Nick Saban right now,” and when pressed for more on what he had, he said “everybody has something on Nick Saban, for God’s sake.”
He then recites the same litany of complaints about the NCAA, college football and pay-for-play that you read on every college sports message board from sea to shining sea.
Listen to his rant below.
If this sounds familiar, it should. This is the same blowhard who made similar accusations in 2010.
When major events like the Penn State sanctions occur, publicity whores like Cindrich come out of the woodwork. They rant, they rave, they ramble. They are the quintessential Shakespearean idiots; full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Why go after Nick Saban? Well, our friends across the state think they have it figured out but the real reason: Saban is widely recognized as college football’s most successful coach. He’s won three national titles and three conference titles at two different schools in the country’s most powerful football conference. At SEC Media Days, Saban got more questions on the state of the game than he did the state of his football program.
He’s successful, he’s high profile and he’s not afraid to tell you what he thinks. He describes idiots like Cindrich with this quote from his comments to the media last week:
“High achievers don't like mediocre people, mediocre people don't like high achievers.”
Exit question: When was the last time that a Nick Saban coached program was hauled before the Committee on Infractions and handed stiff penalties for recruiting violations?
I’ll hang up and listen, Paul.
