On the same day he chided — yes, chided — Alabama fans for leaving games early, he also announced the indefinite suspension of a reserve defensive lineman. And he did so in a uniquely Saban-like way.
Said Saban, “LaMichael Fanning has been suspended from the team indefinitely for a violation of team rules or whatever, so he’s just not around.”
Fanning is a redshirt sophomore defensive end who has played in four games this season. The Anniston Star notes that Fanning is the 11th Tide player in the last eight months to be suspended.
