Video: Nick Saban speaks on the 10-second rule for the first time

Nick Saban spoke to the Georgia Minority Coaches Association on Friday, which gave the reporters in attendance their first crack to ask him about the NCAA's proposed 10-second rule and his role in getting the rule on the table.

Saban denied having anything to do with the idea of a 10-second rule, even though he was one of two non-voting members meeting with the rules committee earlier this month in Indianapolis (you know who the other one was by now). 

Saban stated he favors the rule because referees should control the pace of play (instead of the opposing offense) and that a slowed-down game is a safer game. Clearly he hasn't read the results of this pace of play study.
