Video: Charles Barkley Interviews Saban About Player Discipline

This is a very interesting watch.

NCAA Football: SEC Media Day Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports has exclusive video of Charles Barkley interviewing Nick Saban, and the key point focuses on Saban’s discipline of Alabama players:

At about 3:40, Barkley tells Saban, “As a black man, I really appreciate the fact that you give other young black men an opportunity when they’ve screwed up.”

Barkley then asks why Saban disciplines the way he does, to which Saban repeats his philosophy of rehabilitative vs. punitive correction. The conversation then turns to Saban’s exploits on the hardwood.

The video is about eight minutes and worth your time.

Roll Tide.
