The continuation of the 24-hour feud between Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher will have to wait for another day. The SEC coach’s fireworks are now in a forced intermission, thanks to Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey.
Paul Pabst, producer of The Dan Patrick Showlet it be known that Sankey was closing the party, tweeting, “We were going to have Lane Kiffin on the show today, but the SEC commissioner said no media/no comment to all SEC coaches.”

Lane Kiffin, who resorted to tweeting Commando gifs as he was left speechless during the coaching drama, told Pabst he was “asked” not to comment or do any media outside of the Thursday cover.
Sankey is clearly hoping to avoid a repeat of Thursday when Fisher scorched the earth on Saban, his former boss. At one point, Fisher hinted that the Bama coach saw himself as a higher power, saying: “Some people think they are God. Go dig into how God has done his business and you might find out- be a lot on a guy.” I don’t want to know. We are training him to be the czar of football, let’s delve into his past or whoever has ever coached with him.”
Deion Sanders finally joined the early afternoon war or words that continued into prime time and into the wee hours of Friday morning. Even OutKick founder Clay Travis chimed in on college football’s biggest offseason beef, tweeting, “Damn it’s like a boxing match promo. How bad A&M-Bama will be wild this year?!”

Although Sankey, on behalf of the SEC, has publicly reprimanded Saban and Fisher, there has been no confirmation at this time that conference coaches should steer clear of further comment.
