Alabama, the 2nd ranked team in the nation, will face unranked West Virginia on Saturday in Atlanta. The game will reunite ‘Bama coach Nick Saban and West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett who have known each other long enough that Trickett’s first kiss was Saban’s daughter, Kristen. Here’s the full quote from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
His daughter [Kristen] was my first kiss, back in the day. [laughs] So yeah… I don’t know if I should have said that. [laughs again] She’s actually engaged now. Coach Nick is one of the greatest there is. My brother worked for him. He was a GA for him when he first got to Alabama. And we’ve known him for years, family friends and just one of the best coaches out there.” Cuts off next question. “For clarification, we were like six years old! Just so everyone knows that.”
Yes, that Kristen Saban. She’s apparently engaged now. The best part is that Trinkett later said that his biggest pet peeve was people taking things out of context on social media.
