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 six national championships and all — and Alabama is a dynasty as a result. The Crimson Tide played in four of the last five College Football Playoff championship games, and the team was a part of all but one 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, this 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 matchup with Texas A&M back in 2017, 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, 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.
