Saban Apologizes For Slapping McCarron’s Butt

On Monday, we showed you video of Nick Saban slapping his backup quarterback on the rear during Saturday’s game with Mississippi State.  It was a typical “angry coach pops a kid on the butt as an encouragement/exclamation” moment.

Unfortunately — and this NO surprise at all — some twits were apparently offended by such violence… such uncontrolled rage.  So yesterday on his radio show, Saban offered an apology.

“A tap on the butt is a sign of encouragement,” Saban said.  “I was intense, but I was not angry with AJ (McCarron).  He didn’t have a problem with it.  We were laughing about it the next day.”

Saban didn’t need to apologize.  Coaches have slapped rears since the day someone first inflated a pigskin.  The fact that he did apologize shows that either:

1.  The anti-Saban crowd saw this as an opportunity to feign outrage and try to distract Alabama


2.  Americans are so thin-skinned these days that we’re offended by anything


3.  A lone nut or two posting video “evidence!” of bad behavior (in his/her view) can gain traction on the internet


4.  All of the above.

Saban slapped a kid’s rear! 

I would use another term of exclamation here, but I’m afraid I’ll offend someone and need to apologize.




4. All of the above. I'm with you..Geeez. They didn't raise this much Hell whenever Spurrier grabbed guys by the face mask, numerous times.

    I have some question

    I can write better than the average person (not that that is saying much these days) and I have strong opinions on various subjects. I don’t have experience as a journalist or technical writer, but what does a person need to start blogging and who pay…
