  1. My favorite was Saban purchasing the Pease Mansion! 😂😂🤪😏

  2. I think it’s pretty nice to be a graduate of a University where fans are angry at a likely 7-3 season

  3. Well I guess this one’s superfluous. At this point, it looks like welcome back Mack and mediocrity, unless a rabbit gets pulled from the hat. Nice parody, now what is Nick going to do with that property?

    • People are over reacting to that ridiculous banquet. I think we’ll have a new coach next year?

  4. I am living for the Saturday night when Herbstreit strangles Musburger for calling him “Herbie” just one too many times.

  5. Really, really good. I was really, really laughing. Mack

  6. Pure greatness. I belly laughed out loud.
