Clearly, something is not right with me today. I'm affraid to say what I have to say for fear of being shunned by this community that I love. I just have to come out with it. In the post game last night and seeing him in a press conference today I have to say I like Nick Saban! I'm ashamed to say it really, but I've never seen that side of the guy before.
He was asked if he keeps any momentos or what he does with the rings and his response was, "Oh, I just keep them on the coffee table for all the recruits to see."
Then on why he keeps coaching: The reporter says why, why keep doing it? Saban responds, "Why do you do what you do? I think you should be the best at what you do. If you are a street sweeper why not sweep the street like Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel"
I can't help it, both of those comments really made me have some respect for the guy. I hope this doesn't last long, it's much easier to hate the guy than to admit that not only is he a legendary coach, but maybe he's not the devil afterall.
