Nick Saban’s 2019 didn’t get off to the best start. He got blown out by Clemson in the national championship and then proceeded to lose every assistant coach not named Butch Jones. Yesterday, his 2019 got worse as his prized possesion of the 2018 recruiting class hopped into the portal:

P.s. Nick Saban won another recruiting cycle. Ho hum.
