There was no question that people took issue with Tampa Bay Times’ columnist comments on his radio show that the legendary Eddie Robinson couldn’t compare to Alabama’s Nick Saban.

We did too.

The numbers speak for themselves. He ended his 55-year career as Grambling’s coach with the second most wins (408) in NCAA Division I history and the third most overall. He won 17 SWAC Championships and sent 200 players to the AFL, CFL and the NFL. During this podcast my co-hosts and I argue why Jones was wrong in his comments.

We also explain what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. meant to us.
