SEC commissioner Greg Sankey isn’t happy about the feud between Alabama head coach Nick Saban and Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher over NIL deals and recruiting.

Sankey is so unhappy, he kept Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin from making his regularly scheduled appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show" on Friday.  He didn't want any SEC coaches speaking with the media about the drama between Saban and Fisher, via Larry Brown Sports:

“Lane Kiffin was going to come on, but the commissioner of the SEC asked him not to comment on the Nick Saban, Jimbo Fisher situation,” Patrick said, via Erik Hall of the Mississippi Clarion Ledger.

Paul Pabst, the executive producer of the show, later noted that Sankey did not want any SEC coaches speaking with the media on Friday. The decision came after Sankey released a statement expressing his disappointment in the public spat between Saban and Fisher.

Sankey might not be a fan of all the drama, but he's in the minority on that.  Fans, writers, radio show hosts, hell even some other head coaches are all loving it.
