Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban has always been one of the more vocal personalities in college football. Earlier Thursday, with the help of Director of Sports Medicine for Alabama Jeff Allen and Crimson Tide Mascot Big Al, the trio put together a PSA about social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is a little odd to say the least.
Saban and Allen both told Big Al he needs to stay six feet apart from them, but they also just walked into the same room standing right next to each other. Something is not adding up here.
Despite his stone-cold demeanor on the field, Saban isn't afraid to stand up for social causes or, in this case, public safety concerns. The Alabama head coach wants college football back as soon as possible, so it's of his own interest to encourage Tuscaloosa residents to stay safe.
All in all, this is a pretty solid acting job by all three people/elephants involved.
