It was inevitable that reporters on hand to interview Alabama head coach Nick Saban Wednesday night were going to ask him about the Yahoo! Sports report detailing how former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis acted as a middleman to an agent who gave illegal benefits to five players, including former Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker.

Saban's press conference lasted all of three questions even though Alabama will play one of the biggest games of the year on Saturday when the Crimson Tide travel to College Station to face sixth-ranked Texas A&M.

Before walking off, Saban did say that Alabama has one of the best agent education programs and that he has full confidence in the school's leadership to handle the situation involving Fluker and Davis.

The next question was asked and Saban was clearly not in the mood to answer it.

"Don't ask me any more questions about it," he said. "If you want to talk about the A&M game I'll talk about it."

After the final question that was apparently not about Texas A&M, Saban left with this retort:

"Appreciate your interest in the game."
