Social media strikes again with entertaining content during the holiday season.

A Twitter user decided to compare head coaches in the Southeastern Conference to Thanksgiving staples.

Family and friends will be eating together on Thursday, giving thanks for important aspects of their lives, and watching football too. The user chose to compare Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban to Thanksgiving turkey. The caption reads, “A classic. Even if this isn’t your favorite part of the meal, it’s iconic, and we must respect that.” Coach Saban is not everyone’s favorite coach in the SEC or the nation, but he is the most iconic. His six national championships at Alabama and seven overall make him well-respected. One cannot have a Thanksgiving conversation with turkey, and one cannot have a College Football Playoff discussion without Saban and Alabama. Crimson Tide fans are hopeful its team finds a way to get into the CFP, despite having two losses.

Alabama is prepared for the Iron Bowl with Auburn on Saturday.
