Nick Saban shared some somber thoughts about Henry Ruggs’ situation.

Ruggs has been accused of killing a woman in a fatal car crash while driving under the influence early Tuesday morning in Las Vegas. When his former college coach was asked about the situation, reminded people that actions have consequences.

Saban said the following in part when asked about Ruggs’ situation:

I think this is something a lot of folks can learn from. A lot of players on our team. When we say challenge people to make good choices and decisions, do the right thing. Because sometimes the consequences can be devastating. And these consequences are gonna probably be pretty devastating to Henry. We love him. We’re going to support him through it. But we also have a lot of compassion for the victims and our thoughts and prayers are also with them.

Per usual, Saban is 100% correct. Sometimes in life, you find yourself in a situation you never wanted to be in because your actions caused you to be there.

Ruggs is innocent until proven guilty, but it’s clear that he has a massive battle ahead of him after allegedly being twice the legal drinking limit.

As I’ve said too many times to count, this entire situation is beyond tragic. A woman is dead, Henry Ruggs’ NFL career is almost certainly over and he could very likely end up in prison.

Please, do not drink and drive! It’s not worth it, folks.

Listen to Saban on this issue, and you better believe actions have consequences.
