Nick Saban was recently criticized by ESPN and many other mainstream networks for not punishing his players more often for their wrongdoings. To the mainstream audience, Saban should be more hard on his players, but after watching an interview with him, I understand why he is not. He knows all of his players better than us speculating ever could. He spends endless amounts of time with them and knows what is best for them.
Discipline is not always in the form of punishing and this is about development of character more than it is anything else. Nick Saban knows how to develop young men in the best way possible, hence the title of the article. You can tell by the way the players talk about him, how much he means to that program.
