Nick Saban hilariously doesn’t even know the word for ‘tailgating,’ let alone participate in it

By Jesse Reed

Alabama Crimson Tide head football coach Nick Saban is legendary for his laser-like focus on the things he does best, which is coach and recruit.

Still, it was funny when Saban revealed Thursday that he not only had never been tailgating but didn’t even know the word for it.

If just about any other coach, other than NFL legend Bill Belichick, had said that, we’d chalk it up to a joke. But with Saban, it’s easy to believe he really didn’t know what the word was.

Tunnel vision is one of Saban’s superpowers, after all. So if it’s not something he doesn’t need to think about, he probably never will.
