Apparently getting the Dolphins ready for the season takes up every minute of his time. I suspect that this is either exaggeration on the part of an AP reporter trying to drum up some controversy, or Saban is a Democrat and thinks his fame means we care about his snub of the President. Oh, wait, I just wrote about it, I guess I do care.
