This may very well be my ignorance talking, but I honestly didn't even know that Nick Saban understood that there are things that exist outside of football. His work at LSU and Alabama clearly show that he is a very smart guy. However, I was under the impression he was just a very smart football guy. I thought that he was like Jim Harbaugh in that he couldn't exist in an environment that is not predicated on the x's and o's of football. My bar for Saban was so low that simply reading that he said "pussy" out loud, in that context, to his players gives me a whole new respect for him. I kind of figured that Saban would be too busy dissecting game tape from their losses to Ole Miss and Ohio State to talk to his players about rummaging around for loose ass in the wee hours of the morning. I would have never imagined that Nick Saban would be a cool person to have a beer with until I knew that he understood what it meant to "lock up" a chick for a late night rendezvous. It would be disingenuous for me to dislike anyone that flawless fits a "Hilary Rodham Fucking Clinton" into a monologue. Who knew behind the yelling, screaming, heartless facade that patrols the Crimson Tide sideline there was a man that understood sex, humor, and the combination of the two.
You don't have to like what Saban said here. You don't have to think that it's politically correct. I can certainly see how it could offend those with thin skin and a proclivity to becoming outraged. However, don't you dare tell me it's not true. Nick Saban basically just took the concept of a prenuptial agreement and put it in relatable terms to a college athlete. It's something that those players, who are undoubtedly sliding into every sloppy, attention seeking co-ed that throws herself (or himself, I see you gays) at them, need to hear. If you are playing football at the University of Alabama you are more likely then not being gifted with a free education and an above average chance of playing a sport as a career. Some dumb slut, that has far less to lose than the things I just mentioned, can easily send that money train off the tracks. It's fine for the average college student to take some drunken mess of a human home from the bar at 2AM for some extra curriculars. They are on the same playing field. They don't have to worry about the possibility of sacrificing some of their potential multi-million dollar contracts one year out of school. I'm not saying that big time college athletes shouldn't be sexually active, but they should absolutely have a screening process of sorts, even if it simplistic. At the very least to avoid getting hoodwinked by a some broad that's trying to roll the tides, financial or otherwise, in her favor.
P.S. Plus, if you play football in the SEC, and at Alabama specifically, and can't close the deal before midnight you don't deserve to get your dick wet. At least give the non-borderline celebrity students a two hour window to hook some stragglers. It's only fair.
