Nick Saban spoke candidly Wednesday evening about how Name, Image and Likeness has changed the recruiting landscape in college football, and there's a decent chance that the seven-time National Champion regrets doing so.
"I know the consequence is going to be difficult for the people who are spending tons of money to get players," Saban said, per Mike Rodak of AL.com. “You read about it, you know who they are. We were second in recruiting last year. A&M was first. A&M bought every player on their team. Made a deal for name, image and likeness."
"We didn’t buy one player. Aight? But I don’t know if we’re going to be able to sustain that in the future, because more and more people are doing it. It’s tough."
Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher called a press conference Thursday morning, and it's probably fair to assume that the 56-year-old didn't otherwise plan to speak on May 19.
Fisher -- who was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for Saban at LSU from 2000-2004 -- unloaded on his former boss. Below are some of the best clips:
Worth noting: Saban and the Crimson Tide will host Fisher's Aggies on Oct. 8.
