Training camps have yet to convene, but already the 2010 college football season has achieved a rhetorical high point. That would be Alabama coach Nick Saban comparing agents to pimps.
Would it be too bold to suggest the addition of some furry trim (no pun intended) around the brim of Saban’s famous straw hat?
Consider what’s required to be a pimp: the cold-bloodedness, the willingness to physically exploit young people you claim to protect, and above all, a love of money. The Mack daddy's is the dollar.
But if agents are pimps, then what of big-time college coaches?
A pimp says, You’re my girl.
