“We never bought anyone. No rules were broken. Nothing was done wrong…It’s despicable that a reputable head coach could come out and say this when he doesn’t get his way or things don’t go his way. The narcissist in him doesn’t allow those things to happen,” Fisher told the media during a Thursday morning press conference.
Fisher also encouraged people to dig into Saban’s past without really providing much evidence for what he meant. You can watch his full comments below.

In case you couldn’t already tell, this situation between Saban and Fisher is going to get incredibly ugly. In fact, I’ve never seen a coach go after Saban like this before, and I damn sure wouldn’t recommend doing it!
You’re talking about a man with seven national title rings and a stranglehold on the sport.
Yep, he actually said it.

Fisher beat Saban once and he now thinks he has the clout and authority to run off and talk garbage to the greatest college football coach to ever live.
If I was Saban, I would hang 100 on the Aggies this upcoming season.
