Bama, or at least Saban, has friend at NCAA

Props go to Gentry Estes, former Daily Alabama beat writer currently with the Mobile Press-Register for making the connection and doing the research on this one.

Turns out, the new NCAA president, Mark Emmert, hired Saban at LSU in 2000 and the two have remained friends.

Check out this link, which I found in Estes’ posting, that details the friendship between Saban and the newly minted most powerful man in college sports.

And now, in the spirit of spring weather, here is your Kige Ramsey video of the day along with a bonus video that our friend Kige posted today.

Injury update on Trent Richardson

Stop with the conspiracy theories and conjecture. The rising sophomore running back just pulled a hamstring in Monday’s practice. No threat to his playing status for the season opener, so chill out.

Dre Kirkpatrick was back at practice today after being excused from Monday’s work out due to a death in the family.

Read all the rest tomorrow in print.
