Nick Saban Unloads On A Reporter In Another Epic Press Conference Rant..."They Ran Through Our Ass Like Shit Through A Tin Horn, Man"

AlabamaThe question was about the opposing quarterback’s experience at the FBS level. Nick Saban saw an opportunity for a spirited reminder.

“You all might be taking the week off this week,” Saban said. “But I’m not.”

“Well how in the hell do you know they’re going to get to play,” Saban said. “What makes you think you can just assume that they’re going to get to play. Because you’re assuming the other team is not very good? They do have a Division I quarterback. He plays like a Division I quarterback … if we don’t play against them …”

Saban’s evidence was the 2011 pre-Iron Bowl visit from Georgia Southern. The top-5 FCS team used an option offense like Charleston Southern’s to roll up more than 302 rushing yards on a national-championship defense that allowed 72.2 per game. Alabama won 42-21, but it was a frustrating afternoon for Alabama’s defense.

“I don’t think we had a guy on that field that didn’t play in the NFL and about four or five of them were first-round draft picks,” Saban said. “And I think that team won a national championship, but I’m not sure.

“And they ran through our ass like s*** through a tin horn, man. And we could not stop them. Could not stop them. Could not stop them because we could not get a look in practice. We couldn’t practice it right? And everybody said the same thing in that game. Y’all took a week off. This wasn’t important, so it’s not important to anybody else. It has to be important to the players and it has to be important to us.

“Everybody gets excited for the beginning of the season and you get excited about getting married. But after you’re married for a while, you’ve got to have a process to make it work. And no matter what happens, we need to have a process to make it happen in every game we play. Every game that we play. Can’t assume anything.”

He paused.

“I don’t even know what you asked me. I just wanted to say that.”

It’s that time of the year again! Where every Coach Saban press conference becomes appointment television. Where he tries his hardest to stir up some shit and convince his team that they’re not as good as they think they are and convince the media that they still have some “tough” battles ahead of them. Like Charleston Southern this weekend for example. 9-1, tops in the Big South, coming off a big 7 point win over Liberty. Don’t overlook them, man. Because remember Georgia Southern? “They ran through our ass like shit through a tin horn”

(Alabama won that game by 3+ touchdowns I think)

I mean the reporter didn’t even question him on anything controversial. Basically lobbed him a softball while checking his watch seeing if it was time for lunch yet. Saban just needed to do his Saban thing. Shit through a tin horn baby. Shit through a tin horn.

And for all the Stoolies out there in love and thinking of taking the next step, nothing like a little unsolicited marriage advice from the greatest coach in the land.
