Dude's the best. I hate that he is at 'bama but he is without a doubt the greatest college football coach ever.

BS! Saban is an average coach that only wins when the game is slated heavily his way... $30,000,000; officiating; complicit town where they hide the skeletons of the high paid prima donna players.. and on and on. Dude has NEVER beaten a 9 win Auburn team.. EVER - only beats them when they are down

Nobody likes Bama fans, even the HC. They deserve a run of mediocrity & hopefully karma hits em soon.

I’m glad Bama lives in your head 24/7. You comment on every post about them.

I visit SECRant.com, and this is on the main page. I realize TD is what spawned Rant, but it’s funny that 90% of the posts are about Alabama.

BRING NICK HOME! $100 Million for 5 year. And give him an extra $5 Million/Year to hire and mold a HCIW

That a weird way to say “I’m out and heading back to LSU where I’ll be appreciated”.

There are just some fans that have no clue of reality! Live their lives through a football team. Get a life people it is just a game!

Great rant, but the fans are too self absorbed to listen or care.

Sounds like preparing the fans for losing to UGA.

Welp, when the head coach speaks it...LOL. I know a few BAMA fans that I won't watch games with. I've cheered during an LSU BAMA game and gotten dirty looks from them in my own house. He's not wrong.... Saban knows what is wrong with team and sometimes it's not an easy fix. Guy has his coordinators poached every year and he recovers well from that. If the rabies infected bama fans don't want him, I'd welcome him back.

Living in New Orleans as a Bama fan, I feel your pain. The shite I get from LSU fans while cheering for Bama in their presence has definitely gotten some death stares. Seeing that happens in a lot of cases while anyone cheers for your team in front of rival fans, I’m not sure what it has to do with Saban’s rant.

I'll never understand why he doesn't just leave. He doesn't like Bama. He doesn't like the fans. His lake house is probably 5+ hours away. Any other school in the SEC (not including Vandy) would get close if not match what Bama pays. And before any of your refute that. The University of South Carolina is paying Dawn Staley $2.9 million a year. Thats half of what Saban makes. The apparel/commercial deals alone wold bridge that gap for him and his staff. Not to mention your basically buying a proven investment.

You better check Saban’s salary again. But putting that aside—you are saying that Saban doesn’t like being at Alabama but just stays anyway despite the opportunity to take virtually any other job in football? Hmm interesting take. And by interesting, I mean stupid

Hey retard, ever hear of legacy recruiting or booster support? Saban went there because of Bamas built in advantages. He stays because he knows without those advantages he won’t be at the same level even with his same staff. He stays because he knows he can’t go to Vandy and compete. His system has requirements. Meanwhile Spurrier didn’t think twice about competing at Duke or turning South Carolina into your fricking daddy. As far as his salary, it was a quick Google search. I don’t sleep with it under my pillow like you lame fricks.

That was awesome Nick!!! Tell it like it is brother! frick those entitled pussy Bama fans! Nick: "When I first got here you (fans) were happy to win A Game"! lol

Meh, he went off on LSU fans a couple time. Catastrophe syndrome was one I think. Every top program has entitled fans. U just fired a coach a little over a year after winning a national title. Yes, Bama has entitled fans but don't act like you don't.

It would have been great for him to say, “You know, F it, I going coach LSU. They’re are going to appreciate what we do.”

And yet every one of those people clapping and cheering him on throughout the rant have done (or are) exactly what he described...

Looks like Saban should have been more concerned with coaching his shite assistants.

"I guess I have to say it," Saban said. "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."
