Watching the Iron Bowl from home must be difficult for Nick Saban.

And this parody right here is pretty much how it must be going down. It has to be sheer torture, not unlike Saban visiting Santa Claus as a kid (he admits to crying).

After testing positive for COVID-19 this week, the Alabama head coach will miss his team’s rivalry game against Auburn. The No. 1 Crimson Tide (7-0) are hosting the No. 22 Tigers (5-2) in what is arguably the best rivalry in college football (if not all American sports). This is the last ranked team remaining in the regular season for Alabama.

A path to the SEC Championship Game is wide-open for ‘Bama.

Barstool’s Joey Mulinaro perfectly captures the essence of Saban, at home, trying to tune into the game. One can only imagine how this would play out and how the furniture in coach’s man cave will hold out.

Perhaps ‘Jolly Old Saint Nicholas’ will determine that Saban has been nice this year and finally pay back the head coach with a win over Auburn…all from the comfort of Saban’s La-Z-Boy.

If only he can figure out what the ‘menu’ button does.
