Rumor has it he needs a new Parental Involvement Coordinator for the Alabama football team and he heard one is available, with no contract for the year ahead, in Massillon.

Obviously Saban coming means everything. It means that Massillon has the most talented kids in the country; Moore is being seriously considered as a 'Bama assistant; and it immediately legitimizes that Massillon is still relevant in the major high school football circles. Massillon is considered by the experts as Ohio's top team regardless of division.











OK - it really doesn't mean anything except that the BC ponied up enough cash to make it worth Saban's time but I wanted the Tiger faithful to have some good feelings.

I'm just curious as to what Coach Saban will think when he finds out Coach Dantonio's appearance warranted $150 but his is only $40. At least that's my understanding.

It seems like the sage, Saban, could possibly have some influence on the kids with his words. But, that's not going to happen since kids are not allowed to attend the event.

Another point. The Booster Club ponies up the money for Saban and then goes begging for donations before the Lift-a-Thon for something. I don't remember the specifics. Freaking hot mess. Period.

Who said that? Just don't try to blow smoke up my and tell me that Nick Saban, yes NICK SABAN is coming to Massillon to speak and not getting paid. Are you effing kidding me man?

And no, you Geriatric Geniuses shouldn't have gotten BJ to speak. You should have freaking gotten him to COACH instead of that soap opera from Cincinnati.

Very nice of Nick Saban to come all of the way to Massillon from Tuscaloosa for free. I bet he even bought a ticket to the event for good measure and show his support for a program he'd travel 750 miles to honor.

They pay expenses for them to come.

Saban

Saban made over 6 million dollars last year. Do you really think he needs money from Massillon. They want to recruit this area. That includes all high schools in the area. I don't understand why everyone gets so upset about this. Say he was visiting Central Catholic would everyone get upset. Do you think they paid Urban to show up at basketball game ?

Alabama would really be something if they could get some Stark county kids

Saban doesn't break wind for less than 5 grand.

His interest in coming to Massillon to speak would be what then? A Cameo burger?

You people crack me up.

Does having Saban speak really cover last year's debacle? A season played under the cloud of controversy and ending in a one and done?

Egret is right again. The Massiloons are running the asylum.

If you don't like Massillon and are not part of the program. Why do even care?
You act like your paying him. He is not he first high profile coach to come to stark county. He is just a guest speaker. He is going to do a boys club event near his home. You should go and investigate. I am sure someone from Massillon is behind this.

No, he doesn't but why would he take time out of his schedule to do this for free? If he wanted to recruit/scout the area he would do just that. He wouldn't waste his time doing a scheduled speaking for free.

You think Bill Clinton needed the money from 2001-2013 when he raked in $100+ million for showing up to events to speak?

Actually Bill said they were broke af so they needed the money

And Bill did some free speeches as well... so Saban may as well too. I could see it especially at Kent State since that was his alma mater.

This is Massillon's MO now. Dropping gear from a helicopter, obsessing over a live Tiger, getting a big name speaker for a banquet. It helps keep their minds off the actual football games and keeps the reality at arm's length. Nearly five decades without title for the place they call Titletown - you gotta do something.

Just like it took awhile for Akron to stop calling itself "Th Rubber City" - the nostalgia of the good old days dies hard.

I've been on this site for around 10yrs now in that time the only one I've seen consistently obsessing about Massillon football is you. How many handles have you gone through over the years?

I have a beachfront in Iowa you'd love.

Did Saban also graduate from Massillon? If not, I see no relevance.
