Le program, c’est moi.

Oh, look.  It’s another Nick Saban rant.

“One of these days when I’m finished coaching at Alabama, I’ll write an authorized book,” Saban said at Thursday’s news conference. “Because there’s really only one expert on my life, and guess who that is? Me. And there won’t be any misinformation, there won’t be any false statements, there won’t be any hearsay, there won’t be any expert analysis from somebody else. It will be the real deal.

“But I’m not really ready for that to happen. And you know, it’s a little amazing to me the timing of all this happening right when we’re starting camp. I just want everybody out there and all our fans to know it won’t be a distraction to us, and it’s never going to get discussed again.

“But since I’m not finished yet at Alabama, we’re not writing any books yet. But when we decide to write an authorized book, it will have the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”

So help him Bear.

I get that he’s pissed off about someone making a buck off his name without permission (and, no, I’m not going there), but needing to assure the fans that “it won’t be a distraction to us”?  Really?  Anyone think the players are losing sleep over somebody writing a book about Nick Saban?

Then again, this is the guy who was worried about how Alabama people were going to react to his appearance in a movie as the head coach of LSU – which he was at the time of the events depicted in the movie.

History is hard, I guess.

I know…  Forget it, Jake.  It’s Tuscaloosa.

    David McCullough, the esteemed writer and historian who has authored bestselling books on John Adams and Harry Truman, would seem the logical choice to pen the AUTHORIZED story of that comparable figure in American history, the great Nick Saban. That is, if Mr. McCullough has time for that shit.
