He is ready to battle Carnell “Cadillac” Williams and Auburn in the Iron Bowl, but Alabama head coach Nick Saban enjoyed a hilarious moment Saturday morning on the SEC Network.

Ryan McGee and Marty Smith, the hosts of Marty and McGee, had Saban on set at the University of Alabama.

After his segment, McGee and Smith decided to present Saban with a special award. One of the 71-year-old’s favorite words is ‘Aight.’ He works it into every press conference, media rant, SEC Coaches Teleconference, game, and probably practice too.

In a compilation of his best ‘Aight’ moments, McGee and Smith went through all the moments with Saban and presented him with the ‘Aight’ Award. He could not help but laugh, yet Saban received the award on behalf of Mrs. Terry Saban wanting him to improve in front of the media. He will enjoy this honor; however, Saban is looking forward to winning over Auburn at home.
