You all need to STFU and this is from an Auburn fan!!! Nick Saban is very familiar with the Deshler football team. Deion Belue, that was one of Alabama's starting CB's until he graduated this past year went to Deshler. This also is not the first tragedy that has happened at Deshler either. Right before the Iron Bowl last year one of Deshler's volunteer coaches was murdered. He and Belue were very close.

So you know Nick Saban personally or just pretend you do?

"Not everything in life has a motive."

It does when it comes from Nick Saban.

The written word, in a letter not an email or text, is much more personal than a phone call. It is a letter out of respect to a team and school that is in mourning. It shows the respect for humanity his parents instilled in him. Not everything in life has a motive.

A nurse that I worked with last year showed me a picture she took at her cousin's funeral - it was a beautiful bouquet of flowers that was "From Nick Saban - Roll Tide." Her cousin had never even met Nick Saban before but he was a high school football player at a school with some big recruits that were at the funeral.

a phone call would have been more personal

I doubt Saban threw out a hashtag

nice gesture by Alabama, but I doubt Saban had anything to do with this.

Or maybe, just maybe, he has a heart and decided to do it on his own. He's not a complete piece of shit
