Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban still talk - just not about their blockbuster opener
The blockbuster Week 1 showdown between Alabama and Florida State isn't changing the relationship between the two head coaches.
"We're not big talkers in that way, but we talk," Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said. "We have a great time together. We can talk on the phone."
Fisher has chatted some this offseason with Saban, his boss at LSU from 2000-04. They saw each other at the draft, for instance.
Not surprisingly, the conversation has stayed away from the Sept. 2 season opener in Atlanta.
"We ain't telling each other what we're doing," Fisher said. "But all you've got to do is watch the film. You can see. ...
"(When) it's time to compete, we'll compete against them, but that won't change any relationship you have."
