If you happen to find yourself on the Alabama Crimson Tide’s football schedule on any given season, head coach Nick Saban is already a nightmare.
Saban is arguably the best college football coach of all-time — with his five national championships and all — and Alabama is a dynasty as a result. The Crimson Tide have played in the past two college football playoff championship games and the team has been a part of every CFP final four since the format came into existence back in 2014.
So yeah, going up against Saban can be a nightmare for opposing coaches — especially of those coaches do their business in the SEC.
With that said, the latest Alabama hype video takes the legendary head coach to a new level of scary. Here it is in all of its glory, via Twitter user cuppycup, who was clearly inspired by the “IT” remake:
Wow. Where to begin?
Released ahead of No. 1 Alabama’s (5-0, 2-0 SEC) matchup with 4-1 (2-0 SEC) Texas A&M, the video is clearly meant to spoof the fact that for Texas A&M, the matchup with Saban and the Crimson Tide will be equal to encountering an evil clown in the sewer.
Not only does the video poke fun at Texas A&M’s season-opening loss to UCLA (now 3-2), but it features highlights of the Crimson Tide demolishing opponents in the creepy film projector scene.
Last but not least, Saban is in all of his glory, discussing the Texas A&M matchup in the sewer.
All in all, this was extremely well done, and perhaps maybe a little bit accurate.
Last time these two teams matched up, Alabama beat then No. 6 Texas A&M, 33-14.
