DALLAS — Alabama coach Nick Saban has been an outspoken critic of fast-paced, no-huddle offense. Saban has cited player safety, and last season he offered a pretty simple if vague appeal for change.

I just think theres got to be some sense of fairness in terms of asking is this what we want football to be?, Saban said.
West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen, who uses a breakneck offense with the Mountaineers, fired back on Tuesday during Big 12 football media days.
Yeah, Id tell him to get over it because its not going to change, said Holgorsen, who also helped pioneer the spread offense as an assistant under Mike Leach at Texas Tech. Its going into the NFL, for crying out loud. Theres people being hired in the NFL that have the background in college football to be able to create a little bit more parity.
(I) dont see it changing any time soon. So youd better learn to adapt to it.
