Alabama football fans love Miss Terry Saban for many reasons.

She loves the Tuscaloosa community and does a lot for the youth.

She closes things out on the recruiting trail with her husband, Crimson Tide head football coach, Nick Saban. She is also at the front of all charity events to build the Nick’s Kids Foundation and Tuscaloosa as a whole to be special. However, the seven-time national champion unveiled something different about his wife during Thursday’s “Hey Coach” show.

Terry Saban has a football mind on defense and does not shy away from giving her opinions.

On Saturday, Alabama plays Mississippi at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Coach Saban has his game plan to neutralize Ole Miss’ offense; however, Miss Terry has her coaching hat too.

Saban hilariously explained her thought process for the Rebels.

“Miss Terry always wants to blitz more,” Saban said. “I’ve never said this to Miss Terry, but I am a secondary coach. Secondary coaches who play for coaches who blitz a lot end up sleeping under the bridge and twitching because you’re always putting the backend in a tough situation.”

Well, one cannot blame Terry Saban for voicing her opinion. She wants to see Alabama’s defensive front put quarterbacks on the ground, and Tide fans would agree with her. We will see the Tide bring pressure to Matt Corral, but it will be interesting to see how often it happens.

The defense is trying to bounce back from allowing 48 points to the Rebels last season in Oxford, Miss.
