Alabama fans give Nick Saban a surprising letter grade in Twitter poll

Alabama fans crave perfection and excellence as much as Nick Saban does.

After suffering its second loss of the season, the Crimson Tide nation is not pleased with the product on the field.

Alabama will be out of the College Football Playoff for a second time since it started in 2014. It has a slim chance of making the Southeastern Conference Championship with two losses, but it will take Louisiana State University losing to Arkansas and Texas A&M to help the Tide get in. Fans want Bill O’Brien (offensive coordinator) and Pete Golding (defensive coordinator) gone as soon as possible, but criticism is now coming to Saban. He has guided the program to six national championships, eight SEC Championships, four Heisman Trophy winners, and numerous NFL Draft picks, but this has been a disappointing season.

In a Twitter poll for Touchdown Alabama Magazine, Alabama fans surprisingly gave Saban a B-C grade for his coaching efforts.

Here are some of the reactions from Tide fans to the poll.
