Some Alabama fans weren’t sold on Nick Saban being the head coach of the Crimson Tide.
In a video tweeted by Lynden Blake, the seven-time national champion was talking to a large crowd and told an incredible story about an exchange with a gas station employee after losing to Louisiana-Monroe in 2007.

The employee saw Saban’s LSU national title ring, and not realizing who he was speaking to, said Alabama would never win a championship with the legendary coach running the show. You can watch the hilarious story below. It will probably be the funniest thing you see all day!

That guy didn’t think Alabama would win a single ring with Saban running the show! Not one, folks!

Of course, the exact opposite happened. The Crimson Tide have won six national titles with Saban running the squad, and they’re the most dominant program in the history of college football.
Nick Saban is no longer the highest paid coach in college football, and that’s an absolute travesty.
Saban has brought in BILLIONS to the university of Alabama. He’d still be underpaid if he earned $25 million annually. pic.twitter.com/igxWoRAE6r

There are two kinds of people in the college football world. There are people who think Nick Saban is the greatest coach ever, and then there are people who are wrong.
Former Nick Saban players have earned more than $1.7 billion in the NFL.
Nobody recruits and develops talent better than Saban. Anyone who says he isn’t the greatest college coach of all time is an idiot. pic.twitter.com/HczFfzVQes

That’s simply a fact, and I don’t say that as an SEC fanboy. I’m a Wisconsin man, but it’s simply true.
