Man, I can’t imagine being this joyless about a national title.
“We are in the memory business,” College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock crowed at one point during a speech commemorating the Crimson Tide’s achievement.
Saban decidedly is not.
He is constantly spinning it forward, bracing for the next challenge that lies ahead. Word is that roughly 30 hours after Alabama defeated Georgia and Saban declared he was as happy as he’s ever been, the Tide’s martinet of a head coach was haranguing his staff about its approach to the upcoming season.
“The 24-hour rule was still in effect,” said linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton. “He’s one of those guys who celebrates for the time being and the next day it’s over with…It’s definitely crazy.”
But there is a method to the madness.
And it’s called the “Process.”
I guess he’ll celebrate when he’s dead.
Let’s hope that’s one thing Kirby won’t import from Tuscaloosa.
