This is not satire. Repeat: this is not satire.

From Alex Scarborough of ESPN:

Nick Saban may earn in the area of $7 million per year, but that doesn't stop the Alabama faithful from helping out their championship-winning coach whenever and however they can.

According to a report from, the Crimson Tide Foundation paid off Saban's $3.1 million home in January 2013 even though the organization was under no obligation to do so.

The Sabans, who bought the 8,759-square-foot home in 2007, continue living there with the foundation picking up the tab for property taxes each year.

Nick Saban is truly the King of Alabama. Do you know what kind of power you have when you make seven million dollars a year and people are still raising money to pay off your mortgage and your property taxes? It'd be unfathomable if we weren't talking about Alabama.

And please, remember things like this the next time you're reading about an 18-21 year-old getting in "trouble" for exchanging his autograph for petty cash.
