WATCH: Nick Saban rides (and spins!) in a go-kart

It’s what you’ve been waiting all season — heck, all decade — to see: Alabama coach Nick Saban riding a go-kart.

Yes, Nick Saban riding a go-kart.

Alabama’s athletic department posted a wacky and very short video showing the all-business Saban feeding his need for speed … on a go-kart.


A few observations:

* It looks like that go-kart is way too small for Saban.

* Shouldn’t Saban be wearing a helmet while trying moves like that?

* It’s tempting to imagine that Saban’s spin was the result of hitting the dreaded spin-inducing banana peel of Mario Kart fame, maybe tossed by a Tide rival. (Gus Malzahn? Kirby Smart? Dabo Swinney?)

In any case, Bobby Allison’s title as the most successful NASCAR driver out of Alabama looks safe.
