Not content with national championships and #1 recruiting classes, Nick Saban is looking to open a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Irondale, AL.

Saban and his business partner’s plans have been put on hold briefly, due to to a lawsuit from a nearby Benz dealership, claiming their plans has caused ‘irreparable harm’ to their business.

While Mercedes-Benz will not allow Saban’s name to be on the dealership, his business partner assured AL.com that, “[y]ou’ll get to see his smiling face on TV often,” adding that the coach will frequently film new ads. I think I can speak for all of the internet when I say, those ads cannot come soon enough.

He's going to require that you not drive it more than 40 miles per hour so the slow Alabama kids he recruits can keep up.

A Benz dealership - a lot of his players don't even have anything in their refrigerators, and 98% of them are never going to the NFL to get paid after 4 years of hours in the weight room and practice field.  NCAA makes hundreds of millions in revenue every year, specially Alabama, but yet will not help players financially.  A lot of these players are never going to get the education they are suppose to be receiving with their scholarship.  Its impossible , waking up 5am and hitting the practice field and weight room tip 9am, go to classes 10-2, back to the field again tip 5-6, tutor 6-9pm.  Student-athletes are not allowed to receive 1 penny, how do they differ from a regular student getting a job at the campus book store or working part time in admin?
