    As I watch the Crimson Tide roll over the Washington Huskies, I can't help thinking that Nick Saban is a real class act. Like that Hawaiian dude who coaches Navy, Saban turned down offers to make way more money, just so he could work with these younger players and instill solid values both on and off the field. Ya gotta respect coaches who do this: sure, money is important in life, but some things are more important, yeah? There's also that independent streak to admire: "YOUR MONEY CAN'T BUY EVERYTHING, B!TCHES!!!" :13:

    In my high school daze, Coach Greene was like a dad to me, after my own dad abandoned the family and took whatever money he had with him. Coach was a solid hand, setting a good example for many teens who were going through situations similar to mine. How to act, how to play fair, how to own up to one's mistakes, how to move forward and overcome obstacles in life... some of those lessons didn't sink in right away either, but they eventually sank in and made life a little easier. Good ol' Coach Greene, he even taught me how to drive, back when Driver's Ed was still offered in high school, LOL. :41:

    My point here is that some hands just can't be bought, they have character and values and every last one of 'em is honest as the day is long... it's good to know that such folks still exist on this planet. The truly great coaches know there's more to life than money, and Nick Saban is on track to be the greatest coach in college football history. Bear Bryant was a good coach, but I think Saban will eventually surpass him, because like all good coaches Saban is on a mission and he's happy right where he is. I especially admire his honesty during interviews, telling it like it is and giving the other coach and team credit... a real class act. P!$$ on the Hollywood trash, give me a hand like Nick Saban every time: a REAL ROLE MODEL FOR TODAY'S YOUTH. :77:

    THUS ENDETH THE SERMON, I'M BACK TO THE GAME, LOL. THESE HUSKIES HAVEN'T QUIT YET, THEIR COACH ISN'T BAD EITHER, HE'S ANOTHER HAND ON A MISSION WITH TODAY'S YOUTH. DRIVE ON, I SAY... :red70:

    R.I.P., COACH GENE GREENE... GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. :30:
