Yes, you read that correctly, Nick Saban agreed to allow a Memphis based production company to do his life story...in movie form.
Kevin Scarabinsky of the Birmingham News previewed the premier...RIGHT HERE
And Hal Yeager from the same paper did a photo story...see it RIGHT HERE
One of the numerous funny parts of this story was the part about Saban not being able to attend his premier, instead, a cardboard cutout played the part of the Alabama football coach. (Try and refrain from the obvious joke here)
I'm sorry, knowing how fanatically obsessive the fans in Alabama are about their football and knowing how they worship the very ground that Saban walks on, this whole thing creeps me out.
The big question, at least to us is, why? There are no real answers and we just for the life of us can imagine him being forthcoming about some of the more highly controversial moves in his career. Maybe we are wrong, but we doubt it.
Rather than pontificate further, we'll let you see the trailer and if you want to see the movie yourselves, by all means do so and judge it that way.
