Worlds recently collided at Alabama’s pro day when Bill Belichick and Nick Saban were in the same building together.
Belichick: “Some guy with a bad haircut was over there talking to me about trash cans.”
Saban: “Yeah that’s Butch Jones, he’s our new janitor here at the athletic facility.” pic.twitter.com/JiLTmWYeAh

I don’t know why, but I find this photo fascinating. There’s not a price I wouldn’t pay to hear the Patriots head coach and the Alabama legend sit down and talk football together. I’m not talking about on like a television show. I’m talking about being a fly on the wall during a private conversation.
Those two men are legends of the game. One is the winningest NFL coach and the other is most likely going to get remembered as the greatest guy to ever coach in college. Not a bad duo by any stretch of the imagination.
I would also love to believe that maybe when they casually meet up they don’t even talk football. Maybe they’re talking about their wives, throwing back beers or anything else. Maybe football is the last thing on their minds. These are the questions we must ponder when two great football minds end up in the same room together.
