Fire Nick Saban?
After Alabama lost a close game at home to LSU (46-41), a petition was actually started to fire Alabama Head Coach and West Virginia native Nick Saban.

Saban, who is from Monongah, West Virginia, has been the Head Coach of the Crimson Tide since 2007. Saban’s coaching resume is about as good as it gets. He’s 240-64-1 overall and has won 6 National Championships, 8 SEC Championships, 12 SEC Western Division Championships, 1 MAC Championships and is the 2-time AP National Coach of the Year.
Saban, in his 13th season in Tuscaloosa, had a 31-game home win streak snapped by LSU and the Alabama fans surprisingly, shockingly put the blame on Nick Saban, who happens to be one of the very best coaches in college football history.
I've spent well over 100k on bama in my lifetime, and through 30 years of being a die hard bams fan, I've never seen anything as atrocious as this team. Everyone was right, we were just playing cupcakes. Time for nick to go. #FireSaban

Saban will obviously remain the Head Coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide for as long as he wants to be, but a petition like this and the fans’ reactions following a tough loss shows just how fickle and unfair fans can be.
Although most West Virginia fans remain loyal to Neal Brown and his “Trust the Climb” motto, many have lost trust in the first year Head Coach at West Virginia who was left with very little talent after former Head Coach Dana Holgorsen left for Houston.
Brown, following a most recent loss to Texas Tech that put the Mountaineers at 3-6 overall, promised West Virginians that the football program will be successful soon and that the product on the field will match the amazing fans of our great state.
