Officer Nick lays down the law

Ever notice how Nick Saban talks like a cop? Big, bureaucratic words that sort of rise up and overwhelm his sentence structure and the point he's trying to make?

Well, Officer Nick is in fine form in this full-length film (really a 16-minute video) of his opening remarks to the high school participants of his football camp.

But here's the thing: Saban is perfectly at home in his own skin. He's not afraid to challenge the kids, to boss them and to coach them. He even let's fly with a little barnyard darling, despite the presence of a lot of moms and dads.

See what you think. In his detouring syntax, Saban is making some pretty important points: Dream big and work hard to make those dreams come true.

MG - viewing that video should clearly explain why I call him Mr. Clinched Butt Cheeks. That aneurysm he has coming is going to be a doozy. But since he's won so much (outside of Miami), I guess it works for him.
