The fine coaches of the Southeastern Conference have all converged upon Destin, Florida for their annual meeting. This year’s big agenda is discussing whether the future of the SEC is an 8 or 9-game conference schedule. But the underlying drama has made this year’s SEC coaches meeting more interesting than years past.

We got a look at the seating chart for the meetings earlier. And it’s downright hilarious to see where Alabama’s Nick Saban and TAMU’s Jimbo Fisher have been sat after their recent public feuds.

There are always some choice quotes to come out of this late-Spring meeting but Nick Saban’s quote about his player’s NFL earnings led to an audible gasp from me. Nick Saban is ALWAYS recruiting even if he’s not speaking to ‘croots.

Saban on just how much money Alabama players are making in the NFL.

The Crimson Tide head coach was asked about his recent comments regarding NIL money:

Florida Gators head coach Billy Napier is about to oversee his first season in The Swamp. He was *this close* to getting dragged into the Bama vs TAMU NIL drama but gave a diplomatic answer:

Alabama currently has 78 active players in the NFL. Those players are earning a cumulative $957,203,202 at this moment, according to Sportrac. I’m not at all questioning Nick Saban’s $1.7 billion figure and I fully believe that’s accurate, but some of those players have since left the NFL.

Interestingly, LSU is listed at #1 on Sportrac for highest-earning NFL players right now with 72 active players earning $988,298,114. Ohio State ranks third, Cal-Berkeley fourth, Georgia fifth, and Michigan sixth.
