Nick Saban receives tweet of support from Little Debbie

Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide presumably are licking their collective wounds after being throttled by the Clemson Tigers in the CFP National Championship Game on Monday night, a blowout loss in which the squad lost by the lopsided score of 44-16.

Despite the resounding defeat, Saban, nevertheless likely started his Tuesday with his customary breakfast, two Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies, something humorously highlighted in an ESPN commercial from a few years back.

On Tuesday morning, Little Debbie tweeted out some love for Saban, operating on the presumably correct the assumption that the iconic Alabama coach really needed a sweet treat following Monday night’s debacle.

For those who are skeptical over the notion that Saban really does eat two Oatmeal Cream Pies every morning, the coach actually addressed his breakfast routine leading up to Monday’s big game.

“I’ve been eating them as long as I can remember. Two. The small kind, not the big kind, and one cup of coffee at 6:15 every morning,” Saban said over the weekend, via WAFF-48.

And if history is any indication, Saban did exactly the same thing on Tuesday, although odds are the little creme pies provided little satisfaction given the events of the previous evening.
