Alabama Coach Nick Saban often says things that get plenty of attention. In this case, it might be one of the best speeches the GOAT has given. Coach Saban even had a few words about former Crimson Tide star wideout, Henry Ruggs III.
If you haven't seen it yet, here it is.
The United States Football League. A spring league designed to give football starved fans something to eat during the offseason. The entire league is moving here. That's right. Alabama. Hosting the entire season of games. The U.S.F.L. is significant for several things in the history of modern football in America. For example, the league signed three straight Heisman Trophy winners.
This is it. FINALLY. Can you feel it? Tuscaloosa feels different this week as I go place to place doing my regular weekly tasks. Nick Saban was hired in Tuscaloosa, Alabama fifteen years ago this week. What a move for the history of the Alabama Crimson Tide football program.
Donald Trump, Herschel Walker, Steve Young, Doug Flutie and Reggie White. What do they have in common? Not much, you might say. True.

Here's the latest attempt from former Alabama and NFL superstar Henry Ruggs III and his attorneys to keep him out of jail. You get what you pay for, as they say. Clearly, Henry Ruggs, who spent a few years living here in Tuscaloosa, is paying them plenty of money.
Ruggs lawyers are arguing that turning over medical records are a violation of "doctor-patient privilege".
