Nick Saban and Michael Jackson

By Chris Low

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama coach Nick Saban has long had a fondness for the Eagles rock band and has been known to do a little jamming to "Hotel California."

In fact, he said one of the best concerts he's ever seen was the Eagles back in the early 1990s at Cleveland Stadium. It's a concert Saban attended with Bill Belichick, who was then the Browns' head coach and Saban was the Browns' defensive coordinator.

So to hear that the Eagles were one of the three selections Saban could punch up on his car CD player while driving to work Wednesday morning wasn't surprising.

But we also learned that Saban likes a little Michael Jackson and Al Green.

Saban said it drives his wife, Terry, crazy because they're the only three he listens to.
