Nick Saban Present During '10-Second' NCAA Rule Discussion

Sports Illustrated college football writer Stewart Mandel confirmed via Twitter that Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban was present in the room during discussions of the controversial proposed NCAA rule limiting hurry-up offenses.

The plot thickens.

Saban was present, according to Mandel, along with Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema.

This news will not sit well with fans of teams that run the no-huddle spread. Auburn Tigers fans have been vocal since news of the proposed rule change was announced, with many saying the whole thing was a conspiracy involving Saban. The fact that Saban was present during the talks at least lends credence that one of college football’s most powerful men made his thoughts known to the NCAA.
