Crystal footballs are nice, but if Nick Saban can't fix Alabama's hovercraft team, is he really the man for this job, PAAAOWL? (AP) Crystal footballs are nice, but if Nick Saban can't fix Alabama's hovercraft team, is he really the man for this job, PAAAOWL? (AP)

Despite what you may read on message boards or the pages of this here blog, Nick Saban cannot, as far as we know, actually flex the laws of space and time to his will. Which is too bad, because the Alabama hovercraft team could use some of his PROCESS -- that's right, we said "Alabama hovercraft team":

The inaugural University Hovercraft Challenge on Saturday turned into a disappointing day for the new Alabama hovercraft team. The team not only lost to their cross-state rival, Auburn University, but barely got to compete. Equipment failure limited the team to completing one lap of a one-hour endurance race on land and water. The Hovering Tigers of Auburn also had drive-shaft issues, but not until it had completed 24 laps to win the competition.
The Hovering Tigers of Auburn -- a team you probably didn't know existed and never knew you loved until right this minute.
