Alabama head coach Nick Saban played in the Regions Tradition Pro-Am on Wednesday. While appearing on McElroy & Cubelic in the Morning, Saban talked about his past partnership with Tiger Woods...

“When I played in the Pro-Am when I was at Michigan State in the old Buick Open in 1997 or 1998, it was the first time Tiger won the Masters and he was like 22 or 23 years old,” Saban said, via 247Sports. “This was like the weekend before we started fall camp, so they call and say, ‘Will you play in the Pro-Am?’ And I said, ‘I can’t play then. We’ve got practice starting in three days.’ And they said, ‘Well, if you could play with Tiger, will you play?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’

“That was my favorite Pro-Am, and it was quite an experience. His caddie was Fluff in those days, who was a great guy. It was really a lot of fun.”

I love nick saban. And I will always be grateful to him for turning Lsu football program around. But the last time I checked he is the head coach of Alabama. And I can’t stand those mofos. So please stop posting stuff about him please.

If the dumbasses at the athletic department at that time wanted Nick Saban back, they could have had him. Instead we were stuck with Les Miles.
