So FireNickSaban.com is a Thing That Exists

Suffice to say, there are a few Alabama fans who are less than pleased about their team losing two games in a row.

Enough so, that at least one of them took it upon themselves to create a website with a domain name that might cause most college football fans to do a double-take: FireNickSaban.com.

Interestingly, it appears that the domain was registered on August 8, 2013, when Saban was coming off of a national championship and had arguably the best job security of any coach (or really anybody) in the entire country. But somebody was just waiting for things to go sour, and when they did in the form of a 109 yard touchdown return, the website began making the rounds among message boards.

And sure enough, last night as Alabama — who went into the Sugar Bowl a 17-point favorite — was torched by a well-prepared Oklahoma team, FireNickSaban.com emerged once again.

Granted this site might have been created entirely in jest and doesn’t represent the views of many Alabama fans. But the very fact that it exists and have received some non-ironic support is a great testament to the notion that it’s impossible to please everyone.

In the future when you're having trouble deciding if an extreme reaction is sincere or joking, look at that intentionally humorous website for reference.

Actual quote from the site, in case there was any doubt about its intentions: "The Blind Side is currently sitting at 66% on Rotten Tomatoes. If Saban’s bad-acting, hillbilly face had hit the cutting room floor, I think that number is close to 80%."
