Alabama is the best program in the country, but even Nick Saban has to deal with injuries.

The linebacking corps has been a serious trouble spot for the Crimson Tide in the last few years. That situation got worse this week.

Chris Allen is out for the season due to an ACL tear. Saban confirmed the injury during a press conference this afternoon.

Allen was expected to be a key second-teamer for the reigning national champions.

The news is not good for Alabama, but Nick Saban's reaction to the Chris Allen injury is pretty fantastic.

Even Alabama has depth issues, despite a seemingly-never ending wave of blue-chip players joining the program. Saban reminded us of that in an incredible manner.

Luckily for us, SEC Country's Marq Burnett got video of Saban's phenomenal use of press conference profanity.

No team has recruited at the level of Alabama over the last four or five years, so the Tide definitely have more depth than the average team. Still, injuries are always tough to overcome.

Alabama opens its season with Louisville on Sept. 1. The two teams are playing in Orlando.
