Nick Saban receives a bunch of write-in votes for Alabama student government

There’s no doubt that Nick Saban is treated as a god among men at the University of Alabama. After all, since arriving in Tuscaloosa in 2007, he has gone 100-18 (57-12 SEC) and won four national championships.

And Saban’s success with the Crimson Tide has made him quite the popular guy on campus because according to a release from Alabama’s Student Government Association, Saban received 22 write-in votes for SGA president, good for 0.16 percent of the overall vote.

Granted, student government on the collegiate level isn’t taken seriously for the most part, as Alabama’s voter turnout was just shy of 40 percent, but it’s still a testament to how much Saban means to the school. Football is practically a religion in the SEC, and Saban is clearly the reverend.

If there’s anyone who’s going to be a write-in ballot alongside mentions like Bernie Sanders, a ham sandwich or anarchy, Saban certainly fits the bill.
