Nick Saban told a story about catching a 180 pound fish, and Twitter went bonkers


Down at the SEC meetings in Destin, Florida earlier today, Nick Saban opened up time in front of the press with a story about how he recently reeled in a fish that was six feet long and weighed about as much as he does at 180 pounds.

Saban lamented that the monster took them about an hour to reel in, which he believes is some kind of record.

The fun started once people started to tweet out that opening story because - in the name of good fun - the Twitterverse had apparently been waiting for a moment like this from Saban for years.

When there are about 100 days until college football kicks off again, this kind of stuff is highly entertaining.
