Why do so many people hate Nick Saban and Alabama football? Mediocre people hate high achievers, and high achievers hate mediocre people.
There’s no shortage of people who hate Nick Saban, but why do they hate him? Is it because they’re jealous of his success? His dominance? His charming and beautiful fan base? Maybe – but Saint Nick himself has a different idea as to why he is hated by so many.
Saban has been famously quoted as saying “Mediocre people don’t like high achievers and high achievers don’t like mediocre people.” Coach isn’t wrong very often so let’s run with that theory and take a look at some mediocre tweets from mediocre people who really hate high achieving Nick Saban.

I also hate that Nick Saban looks into the camera during his interviews rather than looking at the person interviewing him.
“I always talk about how mediocre I am in the most monotonous way and then I go out and buy a pair of opened toed sandals to wear while I shop for Rooster themed kitchen knick knacks. So mediocre.”
Don’t expect the hate train to lose any passengers in 2017. Alabama is set to reload with some heavy hitters returning on both sides of the ball, yet another number 1 recruiting class and more draft picks than me at World of Beers without adult supervision.
If you know a mediocre person that hates Nick Saban make sure to show them this article after they finish microwaving their Salisbury steak dinner for one during the commercial break of their favorite daytime Court TV program.
