The best college football coach of the BCS era has reason behind his rhyme: According to Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis, Nick Saban is “the devil himself.”Blog Photo - Alabama Football: Another coach calls Nick Saban the devil

Davis, who coached under Saban with the Miami Dolphins (2005-06) and Alabama (2008), was explaining the differences between Saban—or Satan—in front of boosters Tuesday evening.

"I've always wanted to work with Will [Muschamp]," Davis said. "Will's got a plan. Will coached under the devil himself for seven years. I only did three. He did seven. And his DNA is not any different than Nick.

"[Muschamp]'s like the other guy, only he's got a personality. He'll smile at you. He'll talk to you. You understand? That's what he's all about. That's Will. I'm proud to work for him."

Davis isn’t the only one to refer to Saban as the Prince of Darkness. Vanderbilt’s Jerry Franklin came under fire when he called him “Nicky Satan” in January (which he later apologized for).

Davis forgot one major difference between Saban and Muschamp, however. Lucifer has two national championships and an SEC title since Muschamp became a head coach in 2011, beating Florida 38-10 in their only matchup together.

It may not be fun working for the devil (is it a coincidence that his middle name is Lou?), but at least you’ll get a little bling out of it. Maybe Muschamp should take a few notes and tap into his inner dark side.

Now to look for the nearest Chapel…
