WE'RE GONNA MAKE MOST OF THIS BACK OVERSEAS I ASSUME

Kevin Winter

The good/troubled folks over at Good Bull Hunting have been working hard to figure out who should play Nick Saban in a movie about his tenure at Alabama, a noble pursuit because Gary Busey certainly needs the money. But we can't help but wonder - why are we so obsessed with making movies about Crimson Tide coaches? What about all the other stories out there waiting to be told? Let's get to work finding the thespians ready to bring other coaching legends to life on the big screen.
