Alabama-LSU weather update: Not even praying can stop the rain, Nick Saban says
It’s probably going to rain during Alabama-LSU on Saturday night. We knew that on Tuesday, and the forecast has only gotten worse since.
Weather.com projects 100 percent precipitation on Saturday, with temperatures dipping to 49 degrees at night.
But Alabama coach Nick Saban isn’t worried about it.
“You can track,” he said during a presser on Wednesday night. “You can do whatever you want. You can pray. You can go to church every day. You can do whatever you want. But at the end of the day… if it’s gonna rain, it’s gonna rain. I guarantee it.”
“You’ve got to play the hand that’s dealt you, so I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about it.”
Saban added that he watches The Weather Channel every day with coffee and two Lil’ Debbie cookies, whether Alabama has a game that weekend or not.
“Out of the 15 minutes, probably eight of it is commercials,” Saban said. “But I’m good with that.”
