Saban denies players essential experiences!

The young men that suit up every Saturday and put their heart and soul into representing the Crimson Tide are just not being put to the test and the fault lies entirely with Nick Saban! One of the highest compliments an athlete, and really any individual, can receive is that they perform at their best when they are under pressure. How can we expect our players to perform under pressure if we never actually put them under any real pressure? I mean we have had ONE regular season game decided by single digits in the last 13 months. That is just unacceptable. We need to get Saban outta here and find someone who is going to allow our players to experience what it’s like to be under some real pressure so that when they move on to the next level they are less likely to crack under pressure.

Fire Nick Saban!

Preparing Our Players for What?

If Nick Saban is really the great coach and recruiter that so many people claim that he is then I have one simple question: How many quarterbacks have come out of Alabama during Saban’s tenure have won at least a single measly game in their entire NFL careers?

The answer: Zero. Zip. Ziltch. Nada. Not a single one!!!

The last Crimson Tide QB to get an NFL win…Jeff Rutledge…drafted in 1979.  That is unacceptable.

How are we keeping this guy around who can’t even get a single win out of the quarterback position at the next level. It won’t be long before players start to realize that he does not prepare them well for the NFL and our recruiting takes a hit.

Good Coaches Avoid Penalties, and Nick is Not a Good Coach!

I always say you can tell a good coach by looking at the amount of yellow laundry that his team leaves on the field.  When we evaluate the 2013 Crimson Tide and Coach Saban by this metric things don’t look very good.  Here are just a few of the teams that were less penalized than Bama this year: Indiana, Purdue, San Jose St., Middle Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, Wisconsin, Michigan, UTEP, Ball State, Tulsa…really, Tulsa had fewer penalties than Alabama!  If we keep it in the SEC it doesn’t get any prettier, even an Arkansas team that finished 0-8 in SEC play had fewer penalties than Saint Nick.

One may argue, just counting the number of penalties isn’t the right metric.  Let’s look instead at yards per penalty to get a sense for the severity of the penalties called on each team.  By this metric there are 8 other SEC teams that fare better than the Tide.  However you want to slice it the results of this analysis lead to one conclusion, Nick Saban coached teams show a lack of discipline that leads directly back to the head coach.

Roll Tide!  But let’s Roll with a coach that can instill some discipline in our squad!


Lie to Me Once, Shame on You…

There is no shame in being bald, we all know that it is a genetic trait passed down from your mother’s father. That is all of us except Nick Saban. We are breaking the story here that the reason Nick Saban is always seen with what appears to be perfect looking hair is because its not his! That’s right, the image below definitively proves that Nick Saban suffers from male pattern baldness and has been wearing a toupee and lying about it ever since he broke into the college ranks.
