HOOVER, Ala. - Nick Saban said one option to address the Penn State tragedy might be a ticket tax on athletic events and giving the proceeds to child-abuse funds.
The Alabama football coach said the priority should be the same as in disciplining a player: Try to produce some good from a negative situation.
Longtime Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys.
"This is a very, very criminal situation that probably reflects poorly on a lot of folks," Saban told a small group of reporters Thursday before speaking at Southeastern Conference media day. "It's probably too almost raw to really have a feeling that I can express. I think that what we all should probably be thinking a little bit more about is what do we want to be the outcome of this? Something that's a win-win type thing, for kids in the future, the people that are there now, the players that are there now.
