Landon Collins’ mom definitely ain’t happy with Nick Saban. Her heart belongs to The Hat.
In an interview with a website called MomsTeam.com, Justin expounded on her distaste for the Tide as Collins’ choice, saying that “[Alabama] want[s] to redshirt – or greyshirt – him and they want him playing nickleback instead of safety. He is the top safety in the country and he will never play a game his freshman year.” At the choice of school for her son, LSU, “coach Les Miles is offering to play him as safety during his freshman year.”
She also claims that her son’s girlfriend has been offered a job in Saban’s office, the implication being that his school loyalty is following his little head around. (Shocking to think that could happen, I know.)
But for all that, you have to wonder if the woman is a little clueless when she says things like this:
“His (Nick Saban’s) goals don’t meet the criteria of the family; they meet the criteria of Alabama,” Justin added.
She has to be the only person in America who finds that to be a profound observation. And if she thinks Saban is unique in that way, she’s even more clueless than I already think she is.
