Nick Saban Rips Into Reporter for Using the Word “Appears”

The Alabama football team is back practicing after its Spring Break, and during his first press conference since the return, Nick Saban was less than pleased after a reporter asked about his defensive line depth (5:13 of video). Via 247 Sports:

Reporter: “Nick, you have what appears to be quality depth along the defensive line. Just wondering how you would access that group thus far.”

Saban: “Why would you… we lost two starters there, is that right? What does ‘appear’ mean? Does it mean you dreamed about it and it’s just there?”

Reporter: “It looks like on paper…”

Saban: “On paper? What it looks like on paper? We’ve never seen these guys play or seen them take on an SEC lineman or anything like that but it appears? I like that… ‘it appears.’ So that’s how we form public opinion because something ‘appears’ that way so we make it that way and then everybody believes it that way.
