04:33 PM ET 10.24 | You probably remember Alabama Crimson Tide defensive lineman LaMichael Fanning from the suplex he delivered to Missouri Tigers running back Russel Hansbrough last season. Now Fanning, who has three tackles on the season in limited playing time, has been suspended, and it's for the best possible reason. Take it away, Saban: "LaMichael Fanning has been suspended from the team indefinitely for a violation of team rules or whatever, so he's just not around." There are a couple potential takeaways from this news. On one hand, you could focus on how Fanning is the 11th Crimson Tide player in the last eight months to be suspended. Or you could focus on how Saban Bot is slowly learning humor. A snarky Saban Bot seems like an awesome Saban Bot to me.

Keep it up Bama! A few more of these incidents and hopefully the NCAA will make you vacate the NC from last year and hand ND their number 12...! (that ought to bring Sandy Underpants out from under his rock).

I'm afraid that's the only way anyone would have got one against Alabama last year...

Saban doesn't have time to answer crap like this. He's too busy helping with house hunting in Austin.

The blurb writer's editor or site moderator won't let him use, "Lucifer's Vessel," so, he came up with, "Saban Bot" - Nicky automaton.

11 players... Maybe that's why Saban is having to pull red shirts from freshmen on the roster.

"On one hand, you could focus on how Fanning is the 11th Crimson Tide player in the last eight months to be suspended"

And on the other hand you could look at what the NCAA has done about rules violations at Alabama, but then your hand would be empty.

Kelly gets his imaginary National Championship and he'll be jumping into Schiano's grave. That's a win for everyone.

Not an ounce of emotion anywhere. The only commitment is to the aesthetic of the charade.
