Nick Saban is already back in prime form after getting a hip replacement.

The legendary Alabama football coach had his surgery Monday, and wasted no time before getting back to work. In case you’re wondering how he’s doing, he sounds as blunt as ever. (RELATED: Nick Saban To Undergo Hip Replacement Surgery)

“I had one day on the walker. Now I’m on the cane. I’ll probably throw that son of b*tch away tomorrow,” Saban said when discussing his hip surgery, Cecil Hurt reported Wednesday.

I might hate Alabama with the passion of a million burning suns, but that’s still a badass quote. I have no doubt Saban is 100 percent telling the truth as well.

You think a man with six national title rings has time to be slowed down by a hip replacement? Hell no. He’s got SEC West games to plan for.

He’s got to find a way to likely gut Georgia in the SEC title game.

That loss to Clemson must really be weighing on Saban’s mind and soul. Most people would probably take a day or two off, but most people also don’t get blown out on national television in front of America.

The master of the SEC has scores to settle, and I can promise you he doesn’t give a damn about how his hip feels.

If this is the attitude he’s carrying into the 2019 season, then I suggest his opponents watch out. He’s clearly not playing games.
