Mark Stoops doesn't know Nick Saban directly, just professionally through the coaching family tree.
Jimbo Fisher was the head man at Florida State when Stoops was at FSU...and he brought a lot of Saban-esque ways to practice.
So indirectly, Stoops has part of Bama's modern-day legend in him at Kentucky in the way UK runs things.
And admires the way Saban conducts himself and his team.
