Alabama football coach Nick Saban made it clear he’s not worried about catching a glimpse of the solar eclipse.

“That’s not something I’m really focused on right now. I watch the weather channel everyday. They’re already saying what it’s going to look like in every city in America. So, what’s going to be significant?” Saban told the Alabama media during a recent press conference.


I’ve been critical off all the people jumping over Saban and Alabama football in the past, but this answer is incredible. The guy is trying to win another national title, and the media is asking him questions about the solar eclipse. Does the solar eclipse help the Tide’s defense stop Florida State’s offense in week one? Didn’t think so.

Shoutout to Saban for not absolutely roasting the guy who asked that question. I would have unloaded for asking something so stupid.
