Alabama coach Nick Saban almost never shows emotion. But after the Tide’s big 38-17 win over LSU tonight, he apparently couldn’t hold back his joy. In a move very unlike anything we’ve ever seen before from the Alabama coach, Saban jumped into quarterback A.J. McCarron’s arms right as the buzzer sounded.
Saban went on to call McCarron “the best quarterback in the country” in his post-game interview. The Alabama lovefest is in full force.
