  • Saban got enough dr s and took enough test to get 3 negitives this week

  • Can't Alabama come up with some quack doctor to clear him for the game? Why yes the can! How about that? Run Forrest! Run!

  • Saban is one of the biggest hypocrites. He preaches to his players day in and day out that it's THEIR responsibility to their team, their school, and to themselves to wear masks, social distance, frequently wash your hands, and don't touch your face. He also preaches to his players to strive to be the best, set the highest expectations for yourself, prove that you are worthy to play in the NFL. Yet, Saban remains in the MINOR leagues, unwilling to go back to the NFL to prove that he can win in the MAJOR leagues. He's won national championships in the MINOR leagues, but FAILED miserably in the NFL. Instead of having the courage, will power, and determination to demonstrate to every one that he truly is one of the greatest football coaches of all time, he goes back to the MINOR leagues where he knows he'll have the best talent in the league and one of the weakest non-conference schedules in the country year in and year out.

    • This is BS they let NFL, College Coaches, and athletes return in 3 days ...I had an covid test passed and still had to isolate for 14 days before I was able to travel...sports don’t give a F about these kids and athletes just need ish to talk about and they look past certain positives 🤦‍♂️

  • If Saban can't run his team by phone with all the systems and procedures he has in place, he's not really Nick Saban.

  • Jesus Christ saves from sin. Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Hebrews 9: 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Isaiah 64: 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Revelation 21: 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Romans 5: 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. John 3: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Romans 10: 9-10. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 1John 5: 10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Ephesians 2: 8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Romans 8: 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5: 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. ..............................................

  • Friends, please take heed "THE FINAL JUDGEMENT," is at hand, know that what you choose and accept for your spirit (including your actions in the carnal), will be your eternal fate... You must be very cautious how you choose to live from here on out! Please there are no lukewarm heavenly bodies in Heaven!!! Choose now, in your heart and spirit, righteousness or evil?!!! This is not a joke!!!!!!!

  • I'm a Die-Hard Georgia UGA fan. Nick Saban being off the field will not change a thing. Nick will be on the field virtually with one of his coaches when. (Edited to clarify virtually...I think Nick will be up in the press box in his own sky box talking with his coaches on the internal communications line!) It will not affect the Alabama players as they are a tough bunch of great players. Nick has taught and trained them well. As to my thoughts of who will win the game. I hate to say it, but I think Alabama wins the match by two touchdowns. UGA's defense is one of the best in the nation, but I don't think they have enough to stop that Alabama offense! Please UGA fans, do not hate me for this prediction! It is just my opinion. Win or lose the game, It will still be a fun match to watch!

    • @Ethan Horger Nope! It did not. But I was very close by predicting a 14 point loss. The experts predicted a 6 point loss! LOL. Seeing how I did expect it, I am not so disappointed this morning. The rest of the season should be OK. I have a good feeling, or bad, depending on how you look at it, the Dawgs will get another chance to play against Alabama in the SEC championship! Let's hope that is the case. But you have to admin that Saban is a remarkable coach!

Nick Saban deserves a lot of respect for what he has done for the Alabama football program! As a UGA fan, I even respect Sabans accomplishments at Alabama! May Saturday's game be an exciting game no matter who wins the game!

    • @Tysons Accosta All politics asside...I hate to say it, but Covid 19 is here to stay just like the flu! I do not think there will ever be a vaccine, but only treatments, just like we have treatments for the flu! When the flu was first discovered, my bet is that there were far more deaths globally caused by the flu than the world has suffered to date with Covid 19. The flu is currently responsible for 34,500+ deaths per year in the USA! The flu is still with us and it cannot be eradicated! I feel the same way about Covid. As harsh as this sounds, but I believe Covid is a way of natural population control. Save the strong and lose the weak! Most of the people that have died due to either dying of Covid or WITH Covid are of the median age of 78 in this country! Before Covid, what was the median age of death in this country? It was and still is the age of 78! Sadly, most of these people were already on their death beds. Covid just accelerated their deaths. Remember that there is a difference between dying OF Covid and dying WITH Covid! It is said that Covid was created in a lab. I don't believe that. I think it was discovered in a lab after someone ate an animal not meant to be eaten by humans. I had covid last month, and all I felt were some VERY mild symptoms. Did I worry about losing my life. NO! I did not! I continued living my life like normal. All I am saying is that if you live your life in fear of losing it, you are already dead!

You have been watching too much Liberal Biased media news! STOP being so negative and STOP being a part of the fear-mongering crowd! Nick will be fine after his his first week of quarantine!

We don't have a cure or even a vaccine for this virus but as long as we can get some football played the minimum amount of precautions is okay...
