VIDEO: Nick Saban Doesn’t Have Time For Your Solar Eclipse

On Monday, people across the world will be checking out the rare total solar eclipse, but don’t expect Alabama football coach Nick Saban to be joining in the observations.

This weekend, Saban was asked about the solar eclipse and whether any potential dangers for his players — like the potential loss of eye sight if you star directly at the sun — has led to any extra safety precautions.

Well, Saban addressed the question and gave the most Saban-esque answer.

In short, Nick Saban doesn’t have time for your stinkin’ solar eclipse, because he’s already seen what it will look like on the Weather Channel.

“That’s not something that I’m really focused on right now,” Saban said. “I watch the Weather Channel every day, they’re already saying what it’s going to look like in every city in America, so what’s going to be significant?”

Did anyone really expect Saban to get excited? Of course not.

The Crimson Tide open the season on Sept. 2 against the Florida State Seminoles at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, so the head coach clearly has more important things on his mind.
