Earlier this month the NCAA passed a new rule limiting each FBS coaching staff to 20 headsets to be used on game days. Furthermore, only one of those 20 may be used by an analyst or quality control assistant since the other 19 are already accounted for — one by the head coach, 10 by the on-the-field assistants, four by graduate assistants and another four for players.
Nick Saban was asked about this new rule at the SEC spring meetings on Tuesday, and his response was something you’d expect a Steve Spurrier or a Mike Leach to say.

That certainly is one way of putting it.
