Look: Alabama Player’s Nick Saban Admission Is Going Viral


As serious as Nick Saban usually appears to be, apparently the longtime Alabama head coach has a bit of a taste for lowbrow humor.

At least, that’s what we learned from safety Jordan Battle during the Crimson Tide’s media availability today. Battle was asked if he had any favorite Sabanisms, and we’re not sure if anybody was expecting him to answer the way he did.

Turns out, the 69-year-old coach is a fan of “deez nuts” jokes.

Here’s video of the exchange, courtesy of Michael Casagrande of AL.com.

Yeah, we’re definitely expecting Battle will get an earful from Saban for disclosing that info. At the same time, we’re glad he did, because it is objectively hilarious to picture Nick Saban making “deez nuts” jokes to players and coaches.

We doubt there will be much joking of any kind from Saban this week though. His top-ranked team faces a potentially stiff test on the road this weekend when the Tide travels to play 11th-ranked Florida in Gainesville.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
