This...oh man, THIS really got to me:
Two of Mandich’s three sons, Nick and Michael, explained why their mild-mannered father developed such a dislike for Saban. Their father was a longtime team radio analyst, although his role during Saban’s two Miami seasons was as a radio talk-show host, when he was openly critical of the coach.
“My dad didn’t really have enemies,’’ Nick Mandich said. “But if you don’t respect him, he’s not going to respect you. ... The first time my dad saw Saban, it was in a hallway next to his office. He said ‘hi’ to him and Saban just walked right by and didn’t acknowledge him.’’
Michael Mandich said his father received a call after that encounter.
“His assistant called and said, ‘Please do not address coach Saban unless he addresses you first,’’’ Michael Mandich said. “My dad meant it when he said he would have fought him. He never really disliked somebody quite to that degree.’’’
I cannot come to reality where someone can be so ridiculously egotistical and pull some disgusting crap like that. Can you think of a worse way to make someone feel so much smaller than you? Lol that rat must think he is a god treating Mandich...or ANYONE as a matter of fact, like that. I hope the Irish blow the living F' out of that scumbag's team...and I hate Notre Dame!
He's not the first person to get that kind of treatment from Saban. On Saban's second day as coach, a pretty young female office assistant told him she liked his haircut. She was told a few hours later never to speak to him again unless he spoke to her first. That is NOT the way to treat subordinates
