Who does Nick Saban admire? On Monday night, before the inaugural Nick Saban Legacy Award ceremony in Birmingham, he answered the question...
quote:

“Well, look. Anybody in any profession who has had a tremendous amount of success, I have an admiration for that because I know how difficult it is,” Saban began. “I don’t care if it’s in the music industry and you’re the Eagles or Michael Jackson or the Rolling Stones. Those people have been successful for a long, long time. Elton John. So I admire that.

“I admire Kobe Bryant. I admire Michael Jordan — guys who were dominant for a long, long time and they did it on a very consistent basis because some people can be dominant for a little while, but it takes a special someone because it’s not really human nature to try to be the best you can be. It’s human nature to survive.”

Yes but Jordan and Kobe didn't make excuses when they lost. Saban and all the Bama fans having been pumping out nothing but EXCUSES for 33-18!

He should've named Stetson Bennett who whooped him and his "heisman" winner Bryce "pick 6" Young!

Bama got whooped by the injury bug not uga, and certainly not Bennett. He was unimpressive as always in the title game. UGA and Stetson and arse hammered in the SECCG. Alabama is the returning champs in the SEC. Deal with it

Saban above looks like your grandpa sitting back at the 4th of July family gathering watching the kids do sparklers and eating watermelon.

Great article title, bum. I thought this was going to be about 2-star recruits who worked hard and he admired. And was actually interested.
