I can’t believe this is real right now. I absolutely can’t believe Nick Saban has coronavirus and will have to miss a game.
Outside of maybe Donald Trump, I’m not sure anyone in America more prominent than Saban has caught the virus. This is shocking.

Now, Alabama will have to play the second best team in the SEC without Saban running the show. I honestly feel terrible for fans of the Crimson Tide.
To say I’m at a loss for words right now would be an understatement.
Nick Saban: “I found out earlier this afternoon that I had tested positive for COVID-19. I immediately left work and isolated at home. At this time, I do not have any symptoms relative to COVID.”

Prayers out to Alabama, Saban and all the loyal fans. This is absolutely crazy.
