Nick Saban owns at least 100 gas cans now.
This comes after his boat supposedly ran out of gas while he and a few players were spending some time on Lake Tuscaloosa early June.
“I’ve got at least 100 gas cans… I’ve got plenty of gas cans so if anybody needs one let me know, I’ll be glad to send you one., ’cause I can’t use them all,” Saban said during Alabama’s press conference time during SEC Media Days.
Saban says he thought they ran out of gas when the boat, with two tubers on the back, suddenly slowed to a stop.
“So when it stalled, I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh. I bought a new boat, and they didn’t put gas in it.’ I didn’t even think about it. You just assume that it’s got gas in it when you get a new car or a new boat. My heart sunk for a minute because I had all those kids out there. I had two of them on tubes when it happened,” he said to ESPN.
Saban and his players eventually found out from the mechanic that came to their rescue, that it was a faulty fuel pump.
“We didn’t run out of gas. But when the fuel pump runs out, that’s exactly what it feels like,” Saban said, according to ESPN. “I’ve got all these kids on the boat, and I say, ‘We must have run out of gas,’ and then look at the gas gauge and it’s full.”
The boat was brand new according to Saban.
Well. a new boat with 100 gas cans. You can never be too safe.
