In the aftermath of Alabama’s most magnificent night in 17 years, Nick Saban could not have been more gracious. The man who deserves to be the national coach of the year thanked everyone associated with the Crimson Tide football team — from the seniors down to the water boy. And in perhaps the biggest upset of the season, he even thanked the media.
However, Saban left out so many other people who have made this 2009 campaign one of the most special in the school’s storied history.
For starters, he should have thanked Tim Tebow.
