Nick Saban’s “try the veal, folks” moment -
Quite frankly, I’m surprised he takes notice of anything not happening on the field.
Enter the Sabanator.
Guess that means we know where Orgeron winds up. ;)
Thank you, blogging gods. Much appreciated.
Nick Saban, you have it within your power to make this blogger a happy, happy man. Junior at ‘Bama would be a dream come true. Don’t blow this opportunity. Do it for the
children bloggers. Please, please, please…
I don’t know if anybody caught this little blurb via Loran Smith, but it’s amusing:
Prior to the Southeastern Conference championship game between Missouri and Auburn, Rodney Garner, the former Georgia defensive line coach with the same position at Auburn, his alma mater, had this offering: “Nick Saban is the only coach in our conference who could have gotten the officials to put one second back on the clock, and it bit him.” He was, of course, referring to the subsequent field goal attempt by Alabama, which was returned for a touchdown and which sent the Tigers to the SEC championship game.
If anybody had said something like that about one of Corch’s moves that backfired, he’d write a book about it. I suspect Saban’s just walking around, muttering something like “revenge is a dish best served cold” to himself. If he has time for that shit, that is.
It’s pretty impressive how Nick Saban can make the appalling sound bloodless, whether it’s D.J. Pettway’s “horrible decision” or the “university decision” to let him back on the team.
It’s also impressive to see how the Process works, as Pettway was the only one of the four players involved who’s been allowed to return. Maybe it’s because he kept his mouth shut.
After weeks of chatter, former Alabama defensive lineman D.J. Pettway says he’s coming back to Tuscaloosa.
He was dismissed from the Crimson Tide in February after his arrest for second degree robbery, but after a season at East Mississippi Community College, Pettway tweeted about signing with Alabama again…
Pettway was accused of physically attacking a fellow student along with teammates Eddie Williams and Tyler Hayes. All were dismissed from the team. Pettway’s lawyer released a lengthy statement following the dismissal to express his disappointment in the decision. Pettway was granted youthful offender status to end the legal process.
At least they know he can hit.
Be still, my heart. The possibilities are tantalizing.
Nick Saban is shocked, shocked that anybody would believe the stories about him and the Texas job. Maybe a little disappointed in all of us, too. But it was out of his hands.
“Really, the whole thing from my perspective stunk, but there wasn’t a hell of a lot I could do about it.”
Well, maybe other than telling Jimmy Sexton not to pick up the phone, that is.
