Nick Saban goes tubing with Alabama players (Video)


Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban likes to have fun in the offseason and get out on the lake and behind the wheel of the boat, and today he had some company.

Saban took his boat out on Lake Tuscaloosa where he went tubing with some of his Crimson Tide players, including All-American candidate Amari Cooper as the collection of players did a little tubing with Saban driving the boat in a video that can only be described as “awesome.”

How much fun does this look?! Think it will help convince another wave of five-star recruits to come to Tuscaloosa?

It must be pretty nice to have a lake in the back of your house and it must be even nicer to roll out on the boat in some nice blue slacks and Alabama polo shirt and a nice watch (wonder if it’s waterproof?) with some of your college football players who you hope to take to another national title.

Saban is the best coach in college football and may go down as the best of all-time when he decided to hang up his whistle, which may not be until 2022, which is the final year of his recently approved contract extension.

Quarterback Blake Sims who hopes to beat out Jacob Coker for the right to be the successor to AJ McCarron was among those on the boat as were Anthony Orr, Xzavier Dickson, DeAndrew White, Chris Jones, Nick Perry, Landon Collins and Jarrick Williams.
