Alabama fans want Nick Saban to run the score up on Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M this weekend.

One person who remembers the names Fisher called Saban is his daughter, Kristen Saban Setas.

During the offseason, a recruiting dust-up happened between both coaches. Texas A&M brought in the No. 1 signing class for 2022, and Saban stated the Aggies ‘bought every player in the class’ because of NIL. Fisher responded by calling Saban a ‘narcissist’ and said his comments were ‘despicable.’ He also told reporters to dig into Saban’s past to see how he has dealt with assistant coaches. Fisher has walked back his comments on Saban since then, but everyone still remembers them. Kristen Saban wants no pregame niceties between the coaches. She made it clear in a recent Instagram video, poking some fun at Fisher.

Texas A&M earned a 41-38 victory over Alabama in 2021, but Saturday’s matchup will be electric.
