Alabama coach still working on rival Auburn’s name

So much for Alabama coach Nick Saban’s attempt at praising

Auburn.

Saban accepted a trophy for winning the Iron Bowl during

halftime of Saturday’s Alabama-Auburn basketball game. After

thanking the fans at Coleman Coliseum, the football coach expressed

his respect for “the University of Auburn.”

The school’s name is Auburn University.

Some Tide fans in attendance chuckled, before booing the

intended sentiment for their top rival.

Alabama came from behind to beat the Tigers for the second

straight time this past season, earning the Foy-ODK Trophy. The

Tide went on to finish 14-0 and win the national championship.

Saban promised it was “not the end but the beginning” for his

program.
