Nick Saban, a man as beloved by some as he is hated by most, displayed the full breadth of his personality on Friday. The Alabama coach has already made news for his one-man crusade against unauthorized biographies, but now displays his softer side.

In an effort to wish College Gameday personality Lee Corso a happy 80th birthday, Saban donned the mascot head of Alabama’s mascot “Big Al.”

Now, jokes aren’t necessarily Saban’s thing and watching him crack a smile is oftentimes painful, but nevertheless, the attempt is appreciated and enjoyable.
