ESPN's "College GameDay" crew had the Crimson Tide coach on set for its pregame "Championship Drive" show, and everything seemed to be going well — that is, until Lee Corso waxed poetic about how he was undefeated when picking LSU. That includes against Alabama in the regular-season "Game of the Century."

Corso then donned Mike the Tiger's headgear and held up a jersey that read "Corseaux," all while Saban laughed along.

Twitter, of course, was quick to jump on the memeable moment, flooding timelines with reactions from everything to Saban's grin to his blue suit to just how much he hated being there.
