Nick Saban is an ornery, obstinate, perpetually angry man.
And this week he’s furious.
Because the media believes his football team is really, really good.
How dare the media praise Nick Saban’s team in a way that Nick Saban does not feel is appropriate?
The media is so scared that only three questions are asked. Access, baby, access.
And why is Saban so angry? I challenge you to find one negative story that anyone in that room has written about Alabama football in the past three months. Just one!
I wish I’d been at this press conference so I could have asked the first question. Which would have been: “So you don’t believe that this team could beat five or six NFL teams like Western Kentucky head coach Willie Taggart said earlier this week?”
Oh, that response would have been fantastic.
Can you imagine what Saban was like when his kids were infants?
Patience, not his strong suit.
