“Hey Coach!” – A Conversation with Ole Saint Nick

Whether naughty or nice, Ole Saint Nick (a.k.a – Nick Saban – bet you didn’t catch that one) is comin for ya…

Fans, ask your favorite coach about his thoughts on the Tides success and SEC presence.

The win over Tennessee is a current point of pride for the Tide, but as we all know, Saban just wants to improve; we may never understand the somewhat discontentment with performance, but what ever it is, keep doin it man!

The “Hey Coach!” talk show is an opportunity for fans, and loyal Finebaum callers, to ask the man himself their questions. This can be quite magical for some.

The weekly radio show is recorded live from Bob’s Victory Grille in Tuscaloosa on Thursday night.

What’s More Fun Than Jumping in a Pit of Foam? Uh Not Much, Trust Me

Since the overhaul of highway 280 a few years back, drivers are currently content with traffic conditions and so are businesses. This has given way to the overall improvement of 280’s aesthetic and property development.

Up next for 280… American Ninja Warrior and Parkour courses, flying trapeze and some sort of a rock wall for bouldering.
