Are you totally over today’s solar eclipse? So is Nick Saban. When asked what his plans were for catching the first eclipse visible in the mainland United States since 1979, Alabama’s head coach said he just plans to watch it on TV.
“We’ll set it up so if the players want to go out there and get some sunglasses and look at it, I guess they can,” Saban told reporters. “That’s not something that I’m really that focused on right now. I watch the Weather Channel every day and they already said what it’s going to look like in every city in America. So what’s going to be significant? If you watch the Weather Channel, you can see what it’s going to be like in Portland, Oregon.”
Saban actually has a lake house in the path of totality in Clayton, Georgia, but Saban being Saban, he’s not bothering to drive out there for something silly like science.
“Clayton, Georgia is the number one place in the country to have 100 percent,” he said. “My house there is probably going to be the only empty house on the lake. I’m gonna watch it on TV.”
Leave it to Saban to be the Debbie Downer.
