1. Youngstown State coach Eric Wolford seems like a nicer guy than UCLA coach Jim Mora.
2. Nick Saban’s got a reputation for being a jerk when it comes to the press.
That second point is hardly a revelation, though most of the local media who cover Alabama’s coach say he’s not as bad as advertised.
As for the first point, at the 14:50 mark of the video below, a reporter’s cell phone begins to ring during Wolford’s press conference. The coach then draws laughs by telling the reporter: “Coach Saban would body slam you right now. That would not be good, would it?”
Saban wouldn’t body slam a guy whose phone went off, but it’s likely he wouldn’t blow it off in as friendly a way as Wolford did, either. A good showing by the young coach.
