Nick Saban uses coachspeak in responding to Braxton Miller transfer rumors.

Nick Saban had a few words to say Tuesday night about rumors about Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller possibly transferring to Alabama. Needless to say, none of those did anything to conform or deny the rumor, first brought to light by ESPN media gadfly Paul Finebaum.

"I'm not really to talk about any other players on any other team," Saban said before the question was finished. "I know nothing about any such rumors. I don't even know who you're talking about but I don't know about any of those things."

Translation: Anything His Sabaness says could and would be used against him by the NCAA. 

That doesn't mean he wouldn't turn down the chance to get Miller should he decide to transfer out of Ohio State. 

"If there was somebody out there that I thought could help our team, we have a spot or two available that we could probably ... but it would have to be the right person in the right place that could make a contribution because that would be something that would have to be good for that person and it would have to be good for us," Saban said.

Do you really think Saban would turn down a chance to swipe one of Urban Meyer's star QB's? Of course not. He's just not going to let on to whether or not he does.
