Nick Saban will not stop dancing until he recruits every top prospect

Tuesday January 26th, 2016

I’ll give Nick Saban this—five national championships have not quenched his thirst from fielding another juggernaut football team.

Saban is hot on the recruiting trail in the wake of his fourth title with Alabama. And as we’ve told you time and time again at Extra Mustard, college coaches will do anything to draw top talent to their schools. For Saban’s targets, the near-guarantee of playing in a national championship game isn’t enough.

No, even the great Nick Saban has to dance for his recruits. First, it was the dab. Now, it’s the bar mitzvah and sorority formal classic: The Wobble.


Really looking forward to Saban’s interpretation of the Cha Cha Slide.
