Nick Saban is a lovely guy.
Just before he reaches his Mercedes, Saban is approached by an Alabama fan who wants to thank the coach for signing a football for his son. It meant so much to the boy, the man says. Saban gives the man a confused look, as if not comprehending how this large animate object had suddenly appeared in his path, and gets in the car without saying a word.
How big of a jerk is Saban? During SEC Media Days, reporters were forced to wait outside the restroom until His Highness relieved himself.
