Nick Saban getting hammered for his maskless blowup on the sideline
During the second quarter of Saturday night’s game between Alabama and Georgia, Mac Jones was flagged for intentional grounding, and Nick Saban flipped a lid on the official.
In the process of hammering the official, Saban’s headset went flying and his mask came off. As we’re all aware, Saban was cleared just prior to the Georgia game with 3 straight negative tests, which is protocol.
Still, that wasn’t good enough for some hot takers, as they hammered Saban for his maskless antics on the sideline.
Here’s Saban’s reaction if you missed it:
This ref isn’t buying Saban’s negative tests 😷😷pic.twitter.com/3YoHvyG1aY

The tweets started rolling in:
There should be a 15 yard penalty for every time Nick Saban pulls his mask down tonight

I’m not an epidemiologist not a must mask guy, but Nick Saban on the sidelines is irresponsible and moronic.
