Nick Saban Showed Alabama Film of Mariano Rivera

Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban spreaks with members of the media during the Discover BCS National Championship Head Coaches Press Conference on January 6, 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

It had something to do with wanting his team to remain focused, like the Yankees closer. Alabama also watched Zero Dark Thirty last night as it prepared for tonight's national title game, to teach them about fighting through adversity and finishing the task at hand. Coaching is so weird.
