The phrase 'GOAT' gets tossed around a lot these days. Quite frankly, it's used way too much. But it's not hyperbole when we use the term to describe our guest on this episode. 7-time national champion Nick Saban joins All Things Covered to discuss his NFL tenure, his future at Alabama and why he barely celebrates after winning title after title (27:00). But before we get to the GOAT, Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden chop it up. As an ode to our guest, Pat and BMac chat about the differences between college and the pros and their preferences at each level (1:20). The guys then cover Dak Prescott's mega-deal with the Dallas Cowboys that took way too long to get done (6:35). And why is Dak still treated unfairly? P2 has been very in-tune with the news, so we try to stump him today in the latest edition of 'Has Pat Heard!?" (15:35). And then in "21 Questions" we learn his favorite childhood team and dive into what will matter during Pat's upcoming free agency process (21:30). Next, the college football legend and current Alabama head coach Nick Saban joins the show (27:00). Saban talks little about his golf game before remembering Pat's infamous non-interception vs. the Crimson Tide in 2009. All these years later, was he in bounds? That play was just a part of the great battles with Julio Jones, which offers another trip down memory lane. Saban has dominated for nearly a decade and a half at Bama, but we revisit his time in the NFL with the Dolphins. Why did the Drew Brees deal fall apart and how did that influence the decision to return to the college coaching ranks? Saban offers great insight on that situation/debacle...Quarterbacks haven't been an issue in Tuscaloosa and that's partially because of the talent around them and what they are asked to do. Saban shares their philosophy at the position before commenting on his coaching future. He may be 69 years old, but that hasn't stopped his passion and desire to win. All things continue to be covered such as the possibility of a conference-only schedule, how quickly he thinks about the following season after winning titles and the possibility of the College Football Playoff expanding to 8 teams. Don't miss out on a truly legendary episode!
