Saban’s sermon to coaches goes beyond X’s and O’s

HUNTSVILLE, AL — Nick Saban was truly in his element. He was in an enormous room with hundreds of people who speak his language, who share his passion. He was with coaches. Fraternity brothers, of a sort.
One thing to remember about the Alabama coach, he’s something of a football nerd. That’s meant in nothing but the most positive manner.
Share When Saban stood in front of an overhead projector, with something like “Base Under 06 Auto Tilt Zombie ‘Play It'” on the screen, he was doing what he loves best. He was coaching, bringing a preacher’s passion to the moment. He was coaching the coaches.
