Nick Saban Rips Aggies, Says 'A&M Bought Every Player' in No. 1 Class

Alabama's Nick Saban went scorched earth on Texas A&M, Jackson state, and NIL deals.

Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban has always brought an 'old school' mentality to the way he does things. 

So, it should be no surprise that the seven-time national champion has a problem with the new NIL phenomenon that is sweeping college football. 

And after Texas A&M upset the No. 1 Tide in College Station last season, he seems particularly angry with his former pupil, Jimbo Fisher, and the way the Aggies conduct their business

"That’s not what (NIL) was supposed to be. That’s what it’s become and that’s the problem in college athletics right now.”

Unfortunately for Saban, things are not likely to change in terms of the way NIL dealings are implemented across college football. 

Other blue blood programs, like Texas and USC for example, have already used it to their advantage, and have been able to completely reshape their programs in a single off-season as a result.

That said, if there is one coach who has the power to make an impact on the rules of college football, it is Nick Saban. 

For now, however, the Aggies will continue to enjoy their No. 1 ranked class in 2022, and do their use the opportunities created by the new NIL rules to bring in another top class in 2023. 

Something they are already well on their way to doing.
