Video: Finebaum predicts more animosity from Saban until he wins another national title
While many are discussing the latest rift by Alabama’s head coach Tuesday during his introductory spring press conference, one man isn’t surprised to see Nick Saban go off on the media following a relatively innocent question.
SEC Network radio host Paul Finebaum not only claims to have seen this coming but warns college football fans to prepare for an angry Saban in the coming weeks and months.
“He does not enjoy winning,” Finebaum said during an appearance on ESPN’s Outside the Lines. “I’ve been around him after (winning) a national championship and congratulated him and he looked at me like ‘are you crazy? All this does is cause more problems.’ He cannot stand losing and that’s what you saw yesterday, and if you are an Alabama fan — or a fan of college football, get ready for it because we are going to see more of this by Saban until he’s holding up the national championship trophy again.”

Alabama has had one official practice in anticipation for the 2017 season and we’ve already gotten one notorious comment from a fired up Saban. If Finebaum is to be believed, there could be many more coming this SEC season.
