Alabama coach Nick Saban held a press conference Monday that gave reporters an opportunity to ask questions about the team’s upcoming game with Tennessee. Some of the questions were indirectly related to the Tennessee game, and Saban didn’t like that. Apparently he only wanted to talk Xs and Os about Tennessee, and nothing else.
One reporter asked Saban if trying to win one of its player a Heisman Trophy helps bond the team. He didn’t like that question. Another reporter asked Saban about conference expansion and how that might affect the team’s rivalry with Tennessee. He didn’t like that question either.
Jump ahead to the 2:35 mark in this video to hear Saban drop an s-bomb on reporters:
“You all create so many problems,” he said. “I hate to start on this, but, whether guys are going out for the draft, whether we’re worrying about the Heisman Trophy, now we’re worrying about playing Missouri rather than Tennessee sometime down the road. I could give a s*** about all that. Excuse my French. Come on, let’s talk about the game.”
Saban apologized at the end of his press conferences for getting carried away. Of course, this is nothing new for Saban. Remember this video?Google+
