“Sure Alabama has two national titles, but can Nick Saban play ‘Stairway to Heaven’ on the piano?”
We can only assume this is the first recruiting pitch that Dan Mullen makes once he enters a family’s living room to recruit their son. (Right after he’s surveyed the room to determine if there’s a piano for him to play, of course).
And yes, thanks to The Hattiesburg American, we now have visual evidence of this event taking place.
What does it all mean?
Championships for one. Hot groupies, no question. And millions upon millions of dollars in a solo career if this whole coaching thing doesn’t work out.
Who are we kidding, this will do wonders in SEC recruiting. And we anticipate video of an over anxious father yelling “play Skynyrd!” as a sweaty Dan Mullen tries to woo the family to his school. He’d do it, too.
