Alabama coaching legend Nick Saban made it clear that he is not a fan of people who wear jeans that are worn out or have holes in them.

“I just want to know how we got here. Not to offend anybody out there, but I just walked by some jeans — worn out jeans. Holes in them. All cut up. I just remember when I was a kid in West Virginia, I was ashamed to go to school because my jeans were wore out, only because we didn’t have any better. Now they buy them that way. How’d we get here? I don’t know,” Saban told the media during a Wednesday press conference.

The five time national champion was able to eventually crack a smile by the end of his rant.

This is the least surprising rant I’ve ever seen out of Saban. Of course he doesn’t appreciate people walking around looking like a bunch of bums. That’s not a championship mentality at all. Champions are all about doing everything at the highest degree possible. You obviously can’t wear jeans that were bought ripped and worn out, and expect to be a champion.

Now, it’s a different story if they’re worn down from actual work. That’s a positive sign, but that’s not what Saban is talking about. Now we need to get Saban’s opinion on people who wear sunglasses indoors.
