Auburnites, put down your homeschooling materials

Tuesday March 27th, 2012

Nick Saban High is not to be, and we are all a little less lethally efficient for it.

Montgomery Public Schools spokesman Tom Salter, who was on the naming committee, said he certainly learned a lot during the process. But when grilled about the potential of a Saban High, he chose his words carefully.

“As big as an Alabama fan as I am, it would likely not be an appropriate choice, especially this close to the Plains,” he said.

Salter playfully declined comment when asked to speculate why there were no submission for Auburn University football coach Gene Chizik.

Plus, what would they call the school once Saban leaves to coach the Cowboys, PAAAOWL? (If anybody needs me, I'll be hiding in the office for the rest of the week in fear of landmines being placed under my car.)
