New ABC Saturday Night Football sideline reporter got a taste of primetime when she tried to ask Alabama head coach Nick Saban about his running back situation and the multiple backs getting playing time and playing well.  Saban, in the type of gentle warmness that has seen him take Alabama to the top of college football, responded by shooting arrows of fire into Cox.  How dare she ask Nick Saban such an insulting question about the success of some of his players!  Doesn't she know who he is?  He's the one with the statue that's still standing.

There are a lot of people who do not like the Alabama coach, though none of them are the houndstooth-clad...

Simply the best: Saban has Tide rolling
