See what he did there? Nick Saban and the Tide will be in College Station, TEXAS, on Friday in the lead-up to their game against Texas A&M on Saturday. Sports Illustrated didn't get it, and they've since deleted the story. Paul Finebaum was last seen leaving the corner store after purchasing two White Owl cigarillos while cackling like a rabid jackal.
