Sports Illustrated Falls for Nick Saban-to-Texas Satire
As Texas was in the process of suffering the worst defeat-on-the-ground since the Germans blitzkrieged Poland in 1939, Troll Kingpin Paul Finebaum sent out the following tweet:
Perhaps, it's early to pile on Mack Brown, but a reliable source tells me Nick Saban will be visiting in Texas by as early as this Friday.— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) September 8, 2013
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.
