Appearing on The Pivot, former Alabama RB Derrick Henry (now with the Baltimore Ravens), revealed that Nick Saban couldn't stand seeing guys celebrate after scoring...
quote:

"He couldn’t stand anybody scoring then wanting to celebrate afterward," Henry said.

"We were in a meeting after a game – I forgot who we played. He pulled up film and showing everybody. He’s talking about, ‘You guys, stop doing that showboating, doing all that prayer hands, acting like you’re thanking God. Then, later on that night, 12 o’clock, you down there, got Black & Milds, got liquor. You’re chasing (girls). Forget all that."

Based on the quotes here, it seems to me like he was calling them out for being hypocrites and not living what they were portraying on the field.

I agree with Saban on this.

Did Saban mention all the Chargers and Challengers they drove to the bar to chase the girls?

You can thank God anytime you want, nobody but God can be perfect. Only Faith in God can get you to Heaven.

Yeah but fake and vain faith dishonors God.

Saban was smart. That’s how you build a selfless championship team. Get rid of all the BS that distracts everyone away from the ultimate goal of winning.

People hated Saban cause he kicked our arse, routinely, but he’s a legend and brought the game to where it is currently. Much respect.
