Nick Saban is taking this edition of the Iron Bowl seriously. And by that, I mean the Alabama coach is ready for WAR!
Saban, 71, appeared on the Alabama sideline midway through Saturday’s slugfest with Auburn with a bloody and battered face.
Apparently, Saint Nick took a shoulder pad to the dome, leaving the legendary coach looking like something out of Game Of Thrones.

Jarring image. Can’t un-see it.
Saban’s new look caused an absolute UPROAR on social media (RIP Twitter!), with fans speculating what happened to the longtime coach.
CBS eventually doused the flames with the hard-hitting journalism in the third quarter of Saturday’s Iron Bowl.
“Apparently, he got scraped by a player’s shoulder pad,” Tracy Wolfson said. “But don’t worry, Alabama medical staff said he’s good to return.”
Thank goodness. Can’t have Nick Saban on the IR going into the SEC Championship Game!
Anyway, The Crimson Tide are pummeling Auburn and appear ready to end a pretty ‘meh’ season (by Alabama standards, at least) on a high note.
Of course, the College Football Playoff committee could very well still get them into the playoffs, so stay tuned!
