Nick Saban reveals what really caused boat to break down with Alabama players

  Nick Saban reveals what really caused boat to break down with Alabama players Is there a "lemon law" for boats?Nope. Saban's going to have to shell out more than one tank of gas to fix the actual problem.

Former Alabama football offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin , who is now the head coach at Florida Atlantic, couldn't help but poke some fun at Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban after his latest thoughts about ripped jeans.

Lane Kiffin has really bounced back as a head coach. In his first season at the helm at Florida Atlantic, he went 11-3, including a Conference USA title and a 10-game winning streak to end the season.

However, even as he continues to establish FAU as an upwardly mobile program and tries to re-legitimize himself as coach, he still finds time to take jabs at his former bosses.

On June 1, Alabama head coach Nick Saban found himself and his players stranded on a boat with no gas.  These players, including Tua Tagovailoa, all documented the incident, which naturally went viral.

The issue didn’t seem to phase anyone; a video captured on quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s Snapchat showed the athletes cracking jokes about the situation and idling floating around on inner tubes on a hot May afternoon. Even Saban himself laughed off the situation.

In his first season as Florida Atlantic football’s head coach, Lane Kiffin led the Owls to a Conference USA championship, a bowl game and a 10-3 record, which could become 11-3 after Tuesday’s Cheribundi But he still manages to find time to troll his former boss, Alabama coach Nick Saban .

Kiffin tweeted the ESPN FPI chances for teams to win Conference USA, which has Kiffin ’s Florida Atlantic atop the list, and included a troll of his former boss, Nick Saban . This is rat poison to our players!! #process #top10rushingoffensesinthecountry # bama #thefaU pic.twitter.com/JHhte3uH2o.

During a recent interview, ​Kiffin took the opportunity to joke about his former boss' misadventure.

When asked if he hoped Saban would be at a recruiting camp, Kiffin joked that he wasn't able to make it regardless because the boat was stranded.

​​It's nice to see Kiffin joking around about his ex-superior like this, especially after the way he unceremoniously left Alabama right before the College Football Playoff National Championship two years ago.

In all seriousness, though, if Saban were stuck on that boat and had to get back to shore to be at a recruiting camp, I could see him swimming for it. It doesn't matter how far.

He already enjoys ​lakes quite a bit, as we all know.
