Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

They often say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If D.J. Pettway’s actions on Tuesday were any indication, he’s got immense love for his head coach Nick Saban. 

The Alabama defensive player displayed an exaggerated impression of Saban during the media scrum prior to Thursday’s Cotton Bowl tilt against Michigan State. 

This isn’t the first time a member of the Crimson Tide has tried to imitate the iconic head coach. Former player Rob Ezell was the first to start this hilarious trend a few years ago. 

There’s no word on whether Saban found Pettway’s impression to be humorous or not.
