The feud between Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher took the college football world by storm this weekend.

When asked about the new NIL practices at certain programs, Saban threw shade at Fisher, saying that Texas A&M bought their latest recruiting class which is the only reason it finished at the top of the rankings. Alabama finished at No. 2.

Fisher fired back, calling Saban a narcissist and insinuating that he doesn’t always play by the rules. He says there’s a reason he never went to work for the legendary coach despite having the opportunity.

The Aggie head coach adamantly denies having paid for anyone’s services, saying that no rules were broken, and Saban is just mad that he’s been knocked from his pedestal.

The drama has been entertaining to watch unfold.

Saban has since apologized to Fisher, as well as Deion Sanders, who he roped into the conversation by saying he paid a million dollars to land the signature of the nation’s No. 1 recruit Travis Hunter.

Now, another SEC legend is weighing in on the spat, and he seems to be siding with coach Saban.

Steve Spurrier weighs in on Nick Saban, Jimbo Fisher feud

The Head Ball Coach chimed in on the argument, and he doesn’t understand why Jimbo Fisher is upset.

“I don’t know why Jimbo Fisher is mad at Nick Saban. Did Saban say something that wasn’t true?”

Shots fired.

A notorious straight shooter, Spurrier has always been one to speak his mind.

Spurrier has been out of the game for a while, never having to deal with the NIL era of college football. He was, however, a proponent of players receiving some sort of compensation while coaching at both Florida and South Carolina.

Nobody is insinuating that Fisher cheated to get the top recruiting class. Saban is far from the first person to say that Texas A&M bought recruits.

This is the new world of college football. If anything, it shows that the Aggies are serious about the future and they’re taking full advantage of the new rules.
