Nick Saban — he of the sardonic public demeanor, hillperson aphorisms, and salty language — likes to cut loose with his team from time to time.
By his own admission, that’s more than likely to happen with the offensive players, since he is a defensive coach and you can’t very well cross the streams.
But, here’s Josh Jacobs on that sense of humor. And, well...it seems to have peaked sometime around 1999.

This man is a national treasure. If you’re listening, Football Loki, please give us another dozen years. I will take the ‘rona for him if need be.
And, hey, at least they weren’t dad jokes?
