Fisher: One suspension is enough

"What you need to do is accept it, learn from it and don't repeat it. Everything doesn't need to be known. Kids have to have room to grow as individuals. Everything is not out there. Do you whip your kids in public? Don't think anyone is more upset at them than we are, but also nobody cares more for them than we do. There's got to be some privacy for these kids to grow and develop as human beings."

Nick Saban, who had Fisher on his LSU staff, spoke about player discipline last week at SEC media days.

"I want you to know that there's not one player -- not one player -- since I've been a head coach that I kicked off the team that ever went anywhere and amounted to anything and accomplished anything, playing or academically, all right?" he said.

"That's what you all think: What are you going to do to the guy? How many games is he getting suspended? Are you going to kick him off the team? Are there consequences? Yeah, we don't have to depend on the guy. They might get suspended for some games, because that's the one thing that will change their behavior -- because they all want to play. I get that part, and we do that. But I don't usually announce that."
