Following the conclusion of the 2021 College Football season, Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Caleb Williams entered the transfer portal. Williams’s decision to do so followed the announcement that his coach, Lincoln Riley, was leaving for USC.

Williams put out a list of schools that he would be considering transferring to. UCLA, LSU, Wisconsin, and USC were the only four in consideration.

Williams’s Instagram page claims that his motto is “always make your next move your best,” which leaves one to wonder; why in the heck was coming to learn from Nick Saban at Alabama not even a consideration?

Well, without even being asked about it, Williams offered an answer to that question to Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts.

According to Williams, “about 10 years ago, my dad actually told me to make a list of schools I wanted to go to, and he said, ‘number one, you can’t have Alabama on there.’”

What a wild concept for his dad to say that.

It’s crazy that if you have a son who wants to become a professional football player in the future you wouldn’t want him to go play for the greatest college football coach of all time at the premier college football school!

Every class Nick Saban has recruited and graduated from the university has won a National Championship. In his time in the SEC, Saban has produced an average of 6.6 draft picks per year for a total of 119 picks. And while some might say that Williams’s draft stock would be hurt by potentially sitting behind Bryce Young if he didn’t win the starting job off the bat, Mac Jones proved that even Saban’s three-year bench warmers can become first round NFL prospects.

But apparently, none of that is good enough for Mr. Williams.

The Anti- Alabama Team

Alabama has lost 23 games while Nick Saban has been in charge. These athletes were pivotal in helping to secure a rare victory for their teams.
