Last night, President Donald Trump and democratic challenger Joe Biden took the stage for the first of several presidential debates.

In general, the debate left a sour taste in the mouth of most of those watching from home. Without diving into the politics of it, Americans watching from home were left with one question: "is this the best we can do?"

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit found himself asking the same question on Tuesday night. A fan asked Herbie which college football coach would win the presidential election.

The longtime ESPN analyst responded, "Saban." Herbie took it a step further, saying he might just write Saban in on his ballot.

"In fact may just write Saban in," Herbstreit said on Twitter.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban is a popular choice among analysts as a potential presidential candidate. He runs a tight ship in Tuscaloosa, one that competes for a national title each and every year.

Would that make him a good president? We'll never know since we don't see the Crimson Tide head coach leaving for a more stressful position at his age.

As for Saban, he has his attention set on the Texas A&M Aggies who travel to Tuscaloosa this weekend. Both teams sit at 1-0 on the season, though Alabama looked to be the more impressive team in Week 1.

Can the Aggies pull off the upset?
