National Pundits Cowherd and Finebaum Weigh in On Nick Saban vs. Jimbo Fisher

The Nick Saban vs. Jimbo Fisher saga is just getting started, but people are already beginning to take sides

Unless you've been living under a rock, you are aware of the ongoing feud between Alabama head coach Nick Saban, and Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher. 

On Wednesday night, Saban singled out the Aggies, making it abundantly clear that he was not a fan of the way Jimbo Fisher orchestrated his No. 1 ranked recruiting haul in the 2021 cycle. 

"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," Saban said. "We didn’t buy one player. Alright? 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."

David Hicks remains impressed with the Aggies program.

"It's a shame that we have to do this," Fisher said. "It's really despicable. It's despicable that somebody can say something about somebody, more importantly 17-year-old kids. You're taking shots at 17-year-old kids and their families, that they broke state laws."

Either way, the October 8 matchup between the Aggies and the Crimson Tide at Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa is beginning to look more and more like must-see TV.
