Nick Saban made an appearance on the set of ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday. And, well, he received an icy welcome.
Saban and the crew were in Charlotte to help preview the ACC Championship Game between Clemson and Miami. Not surprisingly, some fans in the crowd weren’t happy to see Saban there.
Watch below to hear some fans chanting “Saban sucks.”

Here’s more visual proof of fans’ displeasure with Saban in Charlotte.
Guess who's home with me watching football on the television and enjoying some delicious gumbo?

Give credit to Saban for being a good sport throughout this entire situation. After those opening seconds, Saban went on to give solid analysis about the SEC Championship Game between Auburn and Georgia on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. Per usual, the coach dished out some good knowledge.
It’s somewhat strange to witness Saban doing something other than preparing for an SEC Championship Game. Chances are, the ACC fans who created the commotion above won’t want to see him again soon.
