(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Nick Saban has built college football’s greatest modern dynasty, and continues to add to his resume as perhaps the greatest coach in the sport. That doesn’t stop him from being the subject of NFL rumors every off-season, though.The chance to coach Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers is going to be an attractive one for a number of candidates. Saban has been mentioned for that job, though it is unclear if there are any real legs there.FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd doesn’t like that fit, but he does think Saban would do well with one NFL team.Colin Cowherd thinks that if Nick Saban is to move up to the NFL, the “obvious” match is to coach Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns.He raised the possibility in the Wednesday edition of his FS1 and FOX Sports Radio show The Herd.Nick Saban would be a lousy fit in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers…”The one [fit in the NFL] that’s so obvious to me is the Cleveland Browns and Baker Mayfield.” — @ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/nyInBoWKyj— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) December 19, 2018Cowherd makes a number of interesting, if not convincing, points, including Saban’s penchant for roster construction matched with the Browns’ cap space and draft picks, his familiarity with Mayfield and the former SEC stars on the roster, the Browns’ Southern ownership, and his own experience with the franchise and in the Midwest.If Saban does go to the NFL, maybe Cleveland would make more sense than other options. The Browns do have a lot going for them, battling against the pervasive poor reputation of the franchise.Still, it would be shocking to see Saban make a move to the pros, whether it is for the Browns, Packers, or any team. He has a very good thing going in Tuscaloosa.
RICHMOND, B.C. – British Columbia’s premier is congratulating incoming American president Donald Trump, but says she’s glad the “ugly, terrible affair” of the election campaign is over.Christy Clark said the United States is a close friend and partner of the province and her job is to work with Trump to get the best deal for the province on issues such as the softwood lumber agreement.The softwood deal reached by the federal government in 2006 expired more than a year ago and negotiations to renew it are continuing as B.C., one of the world’s largest exporters of softwood lumber, tries to promote its wood products globally.“Remember, a president also works with a senate and congress so I’m sure that president-elect Trump will reflect the views of all of those people who’ve been elected in this campaign, not just himself, because it’s a complex system,” Clark told reporters Wednesday after an unrelated event.Clark said during the presidential race that women’s equality in politics was suffering because of the toxic tone of the American election campaign.She also condemned Trump then for lewd remarks he was caught saying on video more than a decade ago about touching women without their consent.On Wednesday, the premier said one positive that came out of the campaign was that young women around the world got to see that a woman can compete for “the most important office in the land.”“I think that was an important win in and of itself,” she said.“I would say to young women, if you want to be successful in British Columbia, the examples abound. But I would also say to women, don’t get dispirited.”Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said it’s too early to speculate on the impact the Trump win would have on the city.“Certainly, many people are hurting after such a bitter campaign, with far too much racism and sexism,” he said.“I think the United States and everyone connected to it have a lot of healing to do right now.”Robertson spoke against Trump’s proposal for a ban on Muslim immigrants last December, when he sent a letter to a developer. He urged the developer to drop Trump’s name from a tower being built in the city, saying the presidential hopeful’s “hateful positions” had no place in Vancouver.On Wednesday, he said it was hard to accept the content of the election campaign.“The racism and sexism are a huge concern in a city like Vancouver that’s so committed to inclusion and people of all walks of life being together and living in harmony.” by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 9, 2016 12:04 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 9, 2016 at 6:59 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email B.C. premier congratulates Trump, but glad ‘ugly’ election is over British Columbia Premier Christy Clark holds up a giant pair of scissors after cutting a ribbon at the new facility for the Pacific Autism Family Network in Richmond, B.C.
