Nick Saban is in touch with his spiritual side

Here's something you may not know: Alabama coach Nick Saban does not practice his own version of that religion Jimmy Page does with the castles and candles and alchemy. Rather, he's a devout Catholic who has mass performed before every game.

Neat! What else can we uncover about this fascinating development?

Anything else we should know?

Well, a touchdown seems like a perfectly reasonable request. But if you ask for no-huddle you might end up seeing the other side of Saban. #RollGod
