Before the news of Mack Brown’s impeding departure leaked, the Austin airport had some fun at the expense of its passengers. Around noon on Tuesday, the airport paged Nick Saban.
Multiple people have confirmed that Nick Saban was paged at the Austin airport this morning. THAT is hysterical.

@mbrownfield The Saban page was evidently a prank. SportsDayDFW confirms. And my tweet made the news. And my “Bama fan wife can rest easier.

With the prank, so begins the Great Saban Watch of 2013-14.
