In an interview with 96.7 FM in Dallas, Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian offered his thoughts on why Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban has been so successful.

“There’s not a lot of: one day, we’re going to do this and the next day, let’s go do that and the next day, let’s go do that,” Sarkisian said, according to a report in 247Sports. “There’s a level of consistency in the program and that starts with Coach Saban. I think that he’s got a real vision of how he wants his program to look, feel, the types of players he wants and I think everybody then within the organization understands their responsibility, their role to try to create that and to try to get it to look the way it’s supposed to look.”

Let’s hope it rubs off on Sark.

  • How will Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s deal shake out? That’s a great question. Per reports, Prescott was offered a $50 million signing bonus last season, but that still wasn’t enough to lock the quarterback into a longterm deal. He played under the franchise tag in 2020 but suffered a gruesome ankle injury early on in the season. Here’s ESPN’s take: “The proposed compromise would be a six-year deal that voids to four years,” writes ESPN. “Both sides can then claim a win. The Cowboys can get their salary-cap flexibility in the first two seasons of the deal when teams will be paying somewhat of a price because of the coronavirus pandemic (the NFL’s salary cap is projected to be down, at roughly $180 million for the next year), and Prescott can be back on the market in 2025.”
