Name that caption, a Glanville, a Jones and a Saban walk into a bar edition

Never occurred to me that these three were on the same coaching staff.

By the way, here’s a story from the linked ESPN piece:

KIRBY SMART IS an assistant under Saban at LSU in his late 20s, working long and grueling hours. One day, Saban calls his staff together. Something is bothering him, and it’s not the game plan for Florida. He wants to offer some advice to his coaches. “All you young guys had better hurry up and figure out who you’re going to get married to because if you’re not careful, you’ll be sitting on the porch alone when you’re 60,” says Saban, who’s been together with his wife, Terry, since they were in high school.

The lecture sticks with Smart. When Saban leaves to coach the Dolphins, Smart takes a job at Georgia, where he meets Mary Beth, a former Bulldogs basketball player working in the athletic department. They get married a year after they start dating. Smart rejoins Saban in Miami the same year, then moves with him to Alabama.

After nine seasons with Saban, Smart becomes the coach at Georgia. In 2017, the Bulldogs defeat Auburn in the SEC championship game, earning a spot in the College Football Playoff. Smart is on his way to watch tape when his phone rings. It’s Saban, calling to congratulate his protégé. Smart is stunned.

“I thought it was very thoughtful that he did that,” Smart says. “I’m sure Miss Terry made him do it. That’s OK too.”

The Process is everywhere.
