College Football Playoff: Nick Saban cracks genuine smile. Seriously. For real.
ATLANTA -- Big news here at the final Peach Bowl news conference: Nick Saban smiled.
This is not a drill. This is not a joke. The Alabama coach cracked what appeared to be a real, true, genuine smile. I am 100 percent serious.
Here's the context. Saban and Washington coach Chris Petersen were both asked whether college football needs a commissioner to navigate an increasingly complex sport and system.
Petersen's response: "Yes, and I think Coach Saban would be a great one."
Naturally, Saban responded by giving Petersen a death stare. He's famous for those, if you haven't heard.
And then - swear to God - Saban cracked a smile. He showed his teeth and everything. For real.
Saban had another suggestion for commissioner, by the way: Former Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez.
