OK, people. You’re aiming Twitter rage in the wrong place, wrong time.

See what I did there?

Good, because you’re missing what Nick Saban did Monday afternoon, when announcing he had suspended freshman safety Tony Mitchell — a 4-star member of Alabama’s No. 1-ranked recruiting class — after his arrest on drug and speeding charges.

“Everybody’s got an opportunity to make choices and decisions,” Saban said. “There’s no such thing as being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Maybe Saban isn’t taking a subtle shot at Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats and his ham-handed “wrong place, wrong time” explanation of the facts as he knew them with the investigation of star player Brandon Miller.

Maybe this classic Saban moment is what it is: a coach who finally has reached the end with players and stupid decisions.

And — here’s the key — the enabling by all involved.

Saban saw what happened in the early morning hours of Nov. 4, 2021, when Henry Ruggs III was driving 156 mph in Las Vegas before the reckless speeding ended in a fiery crash that killed a woman and her dog.

He heard what happened in Athens 2 months ago when Georgia players and a Georgia staffer were racing at high speeds — and the eventual crash killed offensive lineman Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy.

He heard about Georgia All-America linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson evading police in Athens by driving at high speeds, and eventually reaching the interstate where police stopped pursuit because of danger to other drivers. Dumas-Johnson was arrested a week later.

Then came Mitchell, who, according to police, evaded during a chase by driving 141 mph and was eventually stopped. Police then found $7,000 in cash, 226 grams of marijuana (about 28 ounces), a set of scales and a loaded handgun. Mitchell was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and/or deliver.

And to top off the 3-month run of bad behavior from SEC athletes, you better believe Saban knows all about the Brandon Miller fiasco.

“You’ve got to be responsible for who you’re with, who you’re around and what you do,” Saban said. “Who you associate yourself with, and the situations that you put yourself in.”

Those close to Saban say he was shaken when he heard of the Ruggs crash. Ruggs had never been in trouble at Alabama on or off the field, and was one of Saban’s favorite players.

A couple of weeks after the tragic incident, Saban was speaking to the Alabama Football Coaches Association about the apprehension of leadership — and how it has infiltrated through young people and left a massive void.

“There was a player in Las Vegas who was drinking at 3 in the morning with his buddies and his girlfriend,” Saban said. “If somebody would’ve taken his keys from him, it probably would’ve pissed him off. Probably would’ve made him mad. But would he be better off now, or was he better off where he was — going 156 mph, running ass into somebody and killing them?

“And he’s in jail. And he doesn’t have a career anymore. And he’s a good kid. What kind of friend were you? What kind of leader were you when you allowed your friend to do that? Nobody wants to do it because they’re afraid of what somebody is going to think of them.”

Look, we all make decisions. We all deal with the consequences of those decisions.

But that doesn’t mean we ignore it after the fact.

This is 1 critical area where professional and college sports fail their athletes over and over. There are no — or at best, limited — ramifications for poor behavior.

Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter pled no contest to traffic violations for his role in street racing that eventually led to the death of 2 young people. He may fall a few spots in the NFL Draft, but he’s still a top 10 pick.

Dumas-Johnson, meanwhile, will be disciplined internally by Smart.

But why wouldn’t Smart make a statement with Dumas-Johnson, 1 of the best players in the nation in the coming 2023 season? Publicly reprimand him, and suspend him from all team-related work until the team returns in August for fall camp.

Then add a 2-game suspension on top of it.

Why wouldn’t the 14 SEC presidents, after the first 3 ugly months of this year — and knowing their laissez faire history with all things player discipline — instruct commissioner Greg Sankey to come up with a disciplinary board and system of punishment.

While it’s difficult to legislate morality, it’s not hard to put guardrails on player discipline and guide it into the fair arena of “if this, then this.”

It’s like dealing with a child, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing: if you do this, then you get this.

If you’re recklessly speeding and have 28 ounces of marijuana, a set of scales, $7,000 in cash and a loaded gun in your car — and it’s proven to be yours — you can’t play in the SEC.

If you’re recklessly speeding and force police to stop the chase because they’re concerned about the safety of others, you will be suspended for a specific amount of games.

If you’re transporting a gun to another player — whether it’s already in the car or not, whether you were part of the incident or not — you’re will be suspended for X amount of games.

Any 2nd time in front of the disciplinary board means expulsion from the conference. It’s a privilege to be a student athlete, not a right.

It’s a privilege to earn money off your name, image and likeness, using the earning power of the most successful, high-profile conference in college sports. It will be a privilege to eventually be paid to play the game.

The SEC — or any Power conference — puts players in position to earn unlike ever before. With that comes expectations unlike ever before.

“There is cause and effect when you make choices and decisions that put you in bad situations,” Saban said.

The era of wrong place, wrong time is over.
