Tide walk-on WR does a better Saban than Saban

This is one of those things in life that really needs very little set-up as it pretty much stands strong and sturdy on its own hilarious merits.

    […] Alabama has added former walk-on wide receiver Rob Ezell to the program’s support staff. Ezell was a part of Nick Saban’s program from 2007 through 2010.
