Too funny if it true's: The agent for Nick Saban, who runs a much more wide-open offence against truth and honesty than he ever has against an opposing defence, got in touch with West Virginia about its vacant coaching job.
Seriously, is Scott Boras representing football coaches now? Saban can go do whatever he has to do, but this is a prime example of why it's so hard to take NCAA football seriously sometimes. It's bad enough Saban gets $4 million a year to coach age-group pro football. Now he would considering quitting on the Crimson Tide after a single .500 season?
As for Boras, he does have a little more time on his hands now that he doesn't have to take (one presumes) those full-of-self-doubt late-night phone calls from Alex Rodriguez, who has gone Hollywood.
Alex Rodriguez's new agent has never represented an athlete, but he is eminently qualified to take on A-Rod, since he previously managed another diva named Madonna.
Full-of-self-doubt late-night phone calls... isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?
