Other than bringing this gentle giant into the, yes, Auburn family, my favorite part of this heartwarming story is that the “Spencer Region switches commit to Auburn” link on the Tuscaloosa News’ homepage still takes to you a pre-written story headlined “Alabama lands lineman commit for 2011 class.”
UPDATE: They finally fixed the link. Good for them. But in case you doubt that Saban has the state’s media eating out his hand to the point where, yes, they don’t just write but actually run stories describing events that would bring him glory before they (don’t) even happen…
