Nick Saban Goes On Hilarious Rant In Response to Fan

Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban went on a hilarious rant in response to a fan calling into his weekly radio show.

The Alabama Crimson Tide are likely still reeling a bit after their 34-24 home loss to the Texas Longhorns, which has resulted in starting quarterback Jalen Milroe getting benched for Tyler Buchner, but that didn't stop head coach Nick Saban from delivering an epic response to a fan who called in on his weekly show, "Hey Coach."

"Well Peewee I've been wanting to talk to you all week," said Saban.

"We gotta firm up the pocket, we're setting too soft, we're getting pushed back in the middle. Everybody thinks we can't hold up against the blitz, but they're sacking us with four-man rush...only one sack came off a pressure, so I wanted to ask you, what the hell's going on?"

"I believe you covered it all right there coach," Peewee responded.

Despite the loss, Saban can still enjoy himself, which is certainly fun to see.

Peewee, whose full name is Peewee Roberts, from Grand Bay, Alabama, calls into the show frequently with his criticism of the offensive line.

Roberts has been calling into the show for three decades, including the Gene Stallings era and now Saban.

"I don't listen to Paul Finebaum," Peewee said. "I don't listen to any of these other radio shows. I always figured if I was going to ask a question about Alabama football or Alabama basketball, I was going to ask the head coach. And that was the only opportunity that we had."

There was a game in which Alabama played Colorado State years ago. Peewee and Saban chatted about it on the show.

"What's up buddy, you sound down?" Saban said. "Your boys didn't play so good last week."

"No they didn't," said Peewee. "We got handled this week."

When asked about Peewee's criticisms, Saban had this to say back in 2013: "He's pretty diplomatic in the way he sort of makes his point about what he's not happy about or what he thinks we need to improve on, and also very complimentary when he thinks things are being done to his liking," Saban said with a grin. "So I kind of respect that. I kind of respect him. I don't think he's just anybody calling in."
