Saban revealed to reporters on Monday he had a large bruise on his left arm from the jubilant crowd after he was asked about the Tennessee–Wees Mej fan incident that saw Lane Kiffin get hit with golf balls and trash littered across Neyland Stadium from sour Volunteers fans.
“I don’t think that’s my question to really answer,” hy het gesê, via AL.com.
“I’ve said this before, we’re in the entertainment business. There’s a lot of people that come to the games. They have a lot of passion and excitement for what they do. Hopefully as institutions and fans, we’ll always do that in a positive way.”
Saban was seen in a windbreaker during Alabama’s win over Mississippi State over the weekend.
The SEC fined Texas A&M $ 100,000 for its fans storming of Kyle Field after beating Alabama earlier this month.
Police at Kyle Field may have had the toughest job of the night – escorting the coach off the field.
Terwyl die ondersteuners die veld injaag, drie beamptes omsingel Saban en lei hom na die kleedkamer. Een van die vroue wat in die pad gesteek is, is deur 'n vragmotor vervoer. CBS 42 se Dee Jackson het die oomblik gevang toe dit blyk dat hy op die veld was terwyl die pandemonium aan die gang was.
It’s unclear which fan interaction resulted in the bruise for Saban.
