In case you needed any further proof that Nick Saban is a deity in Alabama (which technically makes Alabama fans devil worshippers) here is a photo of a Nick Saban angel adorning a Crimson Tide fan’s Christmas tree.

How popular is Nick Saban in Alabama? Popular enough to replace all established Christmas lore with new Saban related traditions? I think he’s exactly that popular. You can even call him Saint Nick, though Saban is more like one of those saints who simony’d their way into sainthood in order to get the Church to overlook the various wenches they killed in drunk carriage accidents or bastard children they fathered with peasants under varying levels of consent.
There could be songs and claymation movies dedicated to Saint Nick Saban, Alabama’s new Father Christmas, or rather, Coach Christmas. Obviously Kristen Saban will play the role of the Krampus, viciously assaulting naughty Alabama children and then crumpling into a weeping pile of unstable emotions beneath the tree after she’s finished strangling and gouging all the kids on her list. No child in Alabama would ever misbehave again.
