Eventually, Nick Saban was able to relax and enjoy the moment after winning his fifth national championship in 11 years. Eventually.
As the final seconds were ticking away in Alabama’s incredible 45-40 victory Monday night against Clemson, two Crimson Tide players gave Saban the traditional Gatorade bath. Two running backs, junior Derrick Henry and freshman Bo Scarbrough, were in charge of dousing the coach.
Saban, well, didn’t react in a positive manner.

Moments later, Saban was effusive in his praise for the team and how happy he was for the Crimson Tide. He had a couple minutes to cool off, and collect his thoughts after a cold bath of champions.
