Today, in always be ‘crootin’.

I have a soft spot for goofy comments like this:

“The White Walkers were the bad dudes, man,” Saban said Wednesday on WJOX 94.5 FM’s The Roundtable. “I mean, if we were recruiting, we would go north and try to recruit some of those guys.”

I’m not sure how well they’d hold up in September SEC games, but you can’t fault a man for trying.

  1. I’m sure Little Nicky never misses an episode of GoT. I’m sure he came up with that all on his own.

    Quit trying to sound young, Nick. You aren’t.

    I sure they would have a high havoc rate, but you’d just want to run a lot of dragon glass left and Valyrian steel right. Arya plays qb of course.

      As the article I linked above surmised, the Battle of Winterfell proves that the WW had benefited from a soft schedule of Nights Watchmen and Wildlings.

    Apparently Nick hasn’t made it to the third episode of this season yet. He might change his tune.

    Try telling anyone in Williams-Brice Stadium in September that winter is coming. They’ll laugh you right out of the building.

    I’ve only seen bits and pieces of random episodes, but there’s always a midget in them looking pissed off. What’s his deal?
    Is he the Midget King of East Bumble? Was Nick Saban the inspiration for the character? If you think about it, Nicky ain’t exactly tall, always looks angry, and basically rules Alabama with an iron fist.

        Occasionally while channel surfing I’ll come up on GoT. It’s not my thing so I don’t stick around but the little dude always seems to be in the episode.

          That guy (Peter Dinklage) was in last year’s Avengers movie. He played a dwarf, but a giant dwarf that was kicking Thor’s ass. Pretty funny.

      His name is Tyrion and he’s a dwarf with a big…well, never mind. He’s hated by his sister the Queen and killed his father because…never mind. He’s now the Hand of the rightful Queen, except she’s not…never mind. He’s advising how an army led by dragons…never mind.

      Just go re-watch The Wire. Same thing but more modern and no short people.

    Harbaugh would like to see you try. He’s already announced a training camp at North Westeros Junior High.

      He can have those rich kids sitting in Mom’s lap, asking her to make bad people fly, and all the while they can’t fight. The SEC would go for the Giant’s Baby’s beyond the wall.

    How much you wanna make a bet the Night King can throw a football over them mountains and hit the dragon in flight?… Yeah… Coach woulda put him in 2nd half, they’d be national champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind.

    Otto is right – the Night King has a helluva throwing arm. And as far as your point about September games goes, Senator: if the Night King could withstand dragon fire, most likely the White Walkers could deal with September games. And if a player on the other team is being particularly troublesome, deal with it Night King style… kill him, raise him, and put him on our team. Or is that what Dan Mullen thinks the transfer portal is?

    I have no idea what you people are talking about. I have never watched Game of Thrones and after reading this I’m glad.
