Nick Saban says the broken BCS Championship trophy is no big deal (Video)
As we mentioned earlier in the week when we told you about Alabama’s championship trophy being accidentally shattered, it’s likely that no one feels worse about the incident than the player’s father who caused it. As you can see in the clip above from WHNT in Alabama, Nick Saban certainly doesn’t seem worried about it.
“I fell off my boat and (almost) killed myself once cleaning up after taking the kids wakeboarding,” Saban said, trying to downplay the fumble. “That could have been real disastrous. Breaking a crystal ball — even though it’s very meaningful — nobody got hurt, nobody meant to do any harm and I’m sure we can replace it.”
Mistakes happen. Alabama will make up for the $30,000 the trophy costs in the first 10 minutes of their single-game ticket sales. Life goes on.
