When you have won three national championships over a four-year span, your program is allowed somewhat of a creative license. While the rest of the country is freaking out trying to invent new ways to overtake Alabama, the Tide has been busy concocting new ways to impress recruits beyond those shiny crystal footballs.
Who knew that one of those methods would be to install a waterfall in the Tide’s locker room?
It sounds like it’s a small thing, and even a tad unnecessary. However, it is the small things that impress the biggest names (the devil is in the details, and according to Florida’s Tim Davis, Saban knows a thing or two about the devil).
Take the nation’s No. 1-rated pocket passer for 2014, David Cornwell, for example. Apparently it was that waterfall that really impressed him enough to pledge to Saban and the Tide.
That waterfall in Bama’s locker room is about to be legit! C’mon who has a waterfall.. No one!

We’re going to come right out and say it: A waterfall in the team’s locker room is really cool. We don’t care about the haters out there claiming the rich are just getting richer and all that.
However, we do have to give credit where credit’s due. Cornwell tweets that “no one” else has a locker room waterfall, but that’s actually not true. In a 60 Minutes feature, Jacksonville owner Shahid Khan revealed that he had a waterfall installed in the Jags’ locker room prior to last season.
We cannot confirm nor deny whether or not the following is a look at Bama’s locker room waterfall.
