The past 72 hours for the Alabama Crimson Tide have been a roller coaster of emotions since it was announced Nick Saban tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday. Saban, at 68-years-old has been asymptomatic and in good spirits all week, even coaching from home via Zoom calls.
Fast-forward to now, Saban has now received two straight negative PCR tests, and a third will make him eligible to coach the most highly-anticipated game of the college football season tonight against the Georgia Bulldogs.
Should this happen, jubilance will reverberate throughout the city of Tuscaloosa as well as the entire Alabama fan base. With the emotions stirring frantically to its crescendo, likely up until kickoff — a nice change of pace is in order for the strictly business persona of Saban.
Why not have a little fun with what has been a hotbed of memes of how Saban will arrive to the game? Social media users have been quite creative, and entertaining anticipating Saban’s entrance into the stadium today. Doing so will receive quite possibly the loudest ovation Bryant-Denny Stadium has ever heard.

Now, should Saban indeed continue the negative test trend today, there will be no need for any incognito appearances from Saban, but a grandiose, or even entertaining arrival would certainly be out of character — but maybe needed for fans to know the six-time national champion coach is doing just fine.
