“It’s easier to win the national championship than the SEC (championship). Ask Nick Saban.”
Ouch. Talk about a warning shot. He is obviously referring to the 2011 Crimson Tide who did not even make an appearance in last year’s SEC title game, and yet beat LSU in the rematch, handing the undefeated Tigers their first lost of the year in a romp, 21-0. The undeserving asterisk seems to have been placed on Alabama per Coach Spurrier’s request.
If you’re excited about a new rivalry in the SEC, you’ll certainly have to wait, as the only way these two would face off is in the SEC championship game. But my oh my, how explosive that game would be.
So now we wait for Coach Saban’s response. I’m willing to bet no media member will be willing to gather a rebuttal from Saban. So let’s sit on pins and needles to see how the Crimson Tide coach will respond.
