Is Nick Saban really...Batman?

Alabama head football coach Nick Saban is apparently sick and tired of the internet and it's unquenched thirst for the sweet waters flowing from the Fountain of Misinformation. So apparently he's decided to take matters into his own hands, and muddy the waters up a bit.

"Responding to preseason Internet rumors (which are largely created and kept alive via anonymous message board posters, not beat writers) and preseason polls (which are most widely publicized by the conferences, which compile the polls through coaches' voting), Saban lashed out at the assembled media because, well, they were there.

"I don't know where you all get your information," Saban said. "Every time someone posts something on a message board, I'm going to start messing with you. I don't know how to do that, but I'm going to start doing it. And every day I'm going to post something that's just total B.S. so you all can go crazy out there on misinformation and bad information."

In doing so, Saban is adopting the methods that Batman used recently dealing with internet speculation on his secret identity in Batman Incorporated #6.

Of course this begs the question of who Nick Saban really is, or what he does when he's not coaching. He can't be spending all that time in the film room, can't he?

The citizens of Alabama can sleep a little easier tonight. Nick Saban - The Dark Knight of Tuscaloosa - is making the streets safe from evil criminal masterminds and Auburn fans.
