HOOVER, Ala. (WAFB) - Nick Saban, who will turn 70 years old this fall, is fresh off his seventh national championship as a coach.

The Crimson Tide lost six first round draft picks and 10 draft picks overall from last year’s squad and is returning just three starters on offense. Nobody cares. The Crimson Tide is the overwhelming pick to win the SEC again.

Saban ignited a bomb of headlines at SEC Media Days on Tuesday, July 20, when he shared that sophomore quarterback Bryce Young, who’s thrown a total of 22 passes in his collegiate career, has already agreed to roughly a million dollars of Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) deals.

Also in the Birmingham area Tuesday, Deion Sanders got upset over reporters calling him “Deion,” saying they would never call Nick Saban, “Nick.”
