Nick Saban has a reputation for having his players back. Sure we've all heard about discipline when a player breaks the rules, but when there's doubt coach steps up.

Today Coach Saban defended his former Bama star Reuben Foster. The Tuscaloosa News & other outlets reported Foster was sent home from the NFL Combine after a heated exchange over a long wait for a medical exam. Teammates said it was all blown out of proportion. Foster has since apologized.

Today Nick Saban addressed the Foster story. Saban said "do you want a linebacker or a candy striper".

And the quote of the year goes to NICK SABAN!
