Miami — Nick Saban is a cold, heartless bastard. This really isn’t news, but former Dolphin FB Heath Evans told a chilling story on the Jorge Sadano show that proves that Saban is just Satan with a “b”.
It was July 2005, and after the 2nd practice on the first day of two-a-days, OL Jeno James collapsed and started convulsing. Jeno was dreagged into the lockeroom by Evans and four other teammates while some ran to call for help. According to Evans:
Obviously it’s a moment of panic, everyone, you know, we don’t know if this guy’s, you know, gonna die, I mean, the whole deal. But he’s so big and sweaty and heavy that we actually have to set him down in the hallway between the locker room and the training room.Â Nick Saban literally just starts walking in, steps over Jeno James convulsing, doesn’t say a word, doesn’t try to help, goes upstairs, I don’t know what he does.Â But then obviously they get Jeno ‘trauma-offed’ to the hospital.
Later,Â Saban later called a team meeting to explain his thoughts, and Evans was still disgusted with his explanation:
You know, the captain of the ship can never show fear or indecision, we’ve always gotta have an answer, and so I had to go upstairs, that’s why I walked over Jeno like that, I had to collect my thoughts and decide what’s best for our team.’
So it’s best for the team to see their coach ignore a player in dire need? What a leader. No wonder he had to go back to college kids who have no choice but to believe this man’s crap.Â Evans called getting cut by Saban:
The best thing that ever happened to my career, because obviously A) they had to pay me, and B)Â Bill BelichickÂ picked me up and I learned more football than I ever thought I’d know â€” but that deciding moment kind of right there of how Nick Saban handled that, I think it always showed the team that ultimately he doesn’t really care about any of us players.
Oh, it feels so good to have justification for my Saban hatred.
