Our story so far: On Tuesday Alabama sophomore running back Derrick Henry posted an Instagram picture of his new car, a Dodge Challenger. Immediately, the kind folks who frequent social media started speculating that the car was illegal recruiting booty. Then former West Virginia QB Pat White said on Facebook: of course it is … when I was being recruited there, they offered me a Corvette.
Now there’s this whole controversy, and someone asked Nick Saban what he thought. His response was measured and wise, like the soberest of judges.
Nick Saban not happy when I asked about Pat White's claim. "Kiss my a$$, do we not have anything else to talk about?" pic.twitter.com/mhCcxQFi8i

“Kiss my ass.” Ha.
White said that people should “stop pretending that they don’t know that the Crimson Tide has been doing this for years. I’m still glad I turned down a Corvette to become a Mountaineer.”
Note: Saban wasn’t at Alabama when Pat White was being recruited.
