HOOVER - Nick Saban says 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 coach didn't go into details of how a tax would be implemented, but said Thursday at the Southeastern Conference media days such a move to benefit victims would have a positive affect rather than punishing those who didn't have anything to do with the Jerry Sandusky case.

Saban says the Sandusky child sex abuse case and Penn State fallout "is a very, very criminal case that probably reflects poorly on a lot of folks."

He says his feelings are too raw to express publicly, Saban says the focus should be on "what do we need to do to make it better."
