While speaking to the media this week, Alabama head coach Nick Saban referenced his grandmother "Grandma Saban" and her cake baking as a metaphor to his current QB competition...

"We have three guys that are competing for that position right now,” Saban said, via's Matt Stahl. “All of those players are getting better... I don’t think anybody has actually separated themselves yet to this point and I don’t think that it’s something that we’re trying to rush.

“You know Grandma Saban used to cook the best cakes in the world. And I used to stand by the oven when I was a kid and say ‘When’s this cake going to be done?’ And she said ‘If I don’t let it go through and take it out of the oven too soon, it’s going to turn to mush so it won’t be a really good cake. So I think we got to let this sort of develop and make sure we let the cake bake until somebody separates themselves.”

Nick Saban has now adopted Charlie Strong metaphors. Can't see this ending well for Bama

I'm sure if Nick Saban tied his shoes like Charlie Strong, you would predict doom as well.

The parents of former Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban should have put more baking powder in the Nick recipe to help him rise taller.

Hey Nick, you know you can also over cook a cake and end up with a black rock with not enough time to cook another one before the guests arrive.

One must question the opinion of any man who refers to his grandmother as Grandma rather than her proper name, Grandmother.

You wrote all of that with proper grammar and formatting and did not give Mawmaw its rightful place at the top... Questionable...

Grandma Saban should have told young Nicky, “Shut up about the goddam cake already! It’ll be ready when it’s ready. Who’s fricking this chicken?”

Not quite proof of senility but close.
