Jeremy Schaap made a really depressing observation about the lack of fun or good will in the college football coaching realm after telling a story about Nick Saban screaming at him.


"I find college football coaches are the prickliest of them all because often they're kind of the emperors of their own domains," Schaap said. "They're very thin-skinned often, and they have high-pressure jobs and everybody's coming after them, especially these days with the blogs and Twitter. It's very difficult to turn off that feedback loop. So they live in these bubbles, and they feel they're constantly under attack, even if they're winning. And they rarely have any sense of humor anymore."
