While speaking with Patrick, Spurrier also groused about Alabama getting favorable treatment from ESPN, relative to the other teams in the SEC. He said he even mentioned it to league commissioner Mike Slive. ESPN was on Alabama's campus for an All-Access program during preseason camp a year ago. (It's at Oklahoma this year for the behind-the-scenes program.) It also ran an ad featuring fans saying "Roll Tide" during the bowl season. "I said, 'How much did Alabama pay those guys to do that?'" Spurrier said, recalling his conversation with Slive. "He said, 'Oh, they didn't have to pay them anything.' I said, 'Well, what happened to Go Gators or Rocky Top or Go Gamecocks?' I didn't think that was all that fair."
