This may be hard to believe, but Alabama head coach Nick Saban apparently has time to watch television. Saban revealed on JOX Round Table Wednesday that he watches Game of Thrones – and he has a prediction for how it will end.
Saban explained why he loves the show so much – and added that he thinks Jon Snow will find a way to wind up sitting on the Iron Throne.
“I love it,” Saban said of Season 8. “It had to come to this — somebody’s going to win, somebody’s going to lose. That’s the way it always goes. Everybody’s probably got somebody that they’re rooting for, which is how it goes, too. So, it’ll be interesting to see how it winds up.”
“I think, some kind of way, Jon Snow is going to wiggle his way in there, even though he won’t try,” Saban said. “It’ll just end up that way.”
It makes sense that Saban likes the show because there’s going to be a winner and a loser.
It’s unclear if Saban has been watching the show all along or whether he’s recently gotten into it. Considering the fact that there are eight seasons, he’d have to have invested a great deal of time in watching it.
As for his prediction – it’s a prediction many have had for a few seasons now. We’ll see if it comes true.
