Nick Saban’s contract

According to my colleague and friend Steven Lubet (via The Faculty Lounge), although college football coach Nick Saban’s contract does not (I repeat, NOT) include a force majeure clause, “he still stands to lose over $1 million in incentives if the season is canceled.” What would legendary ‘Bama coach Bear Bryant say?

Bonus question: If the SEC does cancel its fall college football season (like the Big Ten and the Pac 12 have done), could a force majeure clause be implied or otherwise read into Saban’s contract?
