What's Saban got against Dusty Springfield?

Part-timer at Bammer canned for playing music that was entirely inappropriate for the occasion.
The staffer was part-time, according to UA Public Relations Director Debbie Lane, but has not been named by the university. Two of the pre-game song choices were "Take the Money and Run," by The Steve Miller Band, and "Son of Preacher Man", recorded by Dusty Springfield in 1968 and later by recording legend Aretha Franklin.
The song choices were apparently directed at Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, whose father is a reverend and is embroiled in a recruiting scandal amid reports that he sought payment during his son's recruitment in violation of NCAA rules.
I guess it's a little too late for that fictional account disclaimer: All characters represented in this pre-recorded musical set are fictitious. Any resemblance to actual persons living, dead or professional tackle football players warming up on this playing field is purely coincidental.

This made me laugh! I hope the guy shows up on a late night talk show for an interview - bet he's funny!
