Alabama Fans Make Parody "Saban Went Down to Texas" Song

The Alabama Crimson Tide are the best team in college football right now. They marched into Texas and stole a win from the Texas A&M Aggies on their home turf last Saturday and earned some serious SEC bragging rights. There’s no doubt that the Tide are title favorites right now and it’s pretty obvious that Nick Saban is the best head coach in college football — by a long-shot.

Despite being rumored to have traveled to Texas in the offseason to talk with the Texas Longhorns about the possibility of one day taking over the program’s head coaching job once Mack Brown retires. However, Saban shot these rumors down and said that he is 100 percent committed to Alabama and wouldn’t consider leaving for another project.

That’s all besides the fact. Saban is involved in another state of Texas related topic. He is the subject of an Alabama fan’s parody video entitled “Saban Went Down to Texas” — a spinoff of the Charlie Daniels Band song of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” — and no, it’s not about Saban’s possible venture to become the Longhorns’ head coach.

As you can hear, it’s pretty decent quality for being a fan version of the song and it hits all the major points of the Tide’s win over Texas A&M in College Station.

The song is pretty catchy and you can barely tell that it’s made by a couple superfans.

Alabama fans constantly happen to show passion for their team and this has to be the coolest act of passion for one’s school yet. With fans like this, why would Saban consider going anywhere else?
