Believe it or not, Alabama head coach Nick Saban says he has a hard time watching non-Crimson Tide football games. He explained why on his weekly radio appearance...
quote:

“I really have a hard time enjoying the game, to be honest with you, when I watch it. All the time that I spend, whether it’s watching a defensive team for our offensive preparation or the other team’s offense for the defense’s preparation. What you’re constantly looking for is what are the issues, what causes problems, what kind of adjustments do you have to make if we were playing against that? That’s all I do.

“I’ve got, like, 200 pages of formations that I go through on Sunday that are matched up with the film, so I write comments on every page about what kind of adjustments do we want to play? … So, when I watch a game on TV, I’m watching and I’m saying, ‘Well, how would we play that play? What would we do if they were in that formation and did that?’ I might as well go back to work. So it’s not really enjoyable, and then I find myself like at the end of the game saying, ‘Why didn’t they call timeout?’ … I’m like managing a game like we’re playing the game. So I’m like, ‘What can we watch on Netflix?’”

Watching a football for Nick is like the postman taking a walk on his day off.

So he is more like us than we thought... Or maybe I should have been a football coach.

I wonder if he like breaks down plays in football movies he watches on Netflix. Imagine him breaking down plays in The Replacements.
