TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban isn't involved
in promoting Mark Ingram for the Heisman Trophy, but he's still
heavily praising his star tailback.
Saban says he doesn't know who the best player is because he
hasn't seen all the Heisman candidates like he has Ingram. He
praised Ingram on Wednesday's SEC teleconference as "a relentless
competitor" and "great team guy."
Saban thinks the award is based on the best player and how he
affects his team, not promotion.
He also says rival Auburn has one of the best offenses the Tide
faces this season.
Saban was also asked what he thought about the game being played
on the Friday after Thanksgiving. He says he'll go along with
whatever's best for the SEC and the game.
