Apparently Nick Saban doesn’t have time for this shit, either.
… After teaching Will Muschamp a lesson Saturday night in the Swamp, Saban was asked in a creative way if he thought Alabama was the best team in America. Lenn Robbins of the New York Post asked that question by saying he wasn’t going to ask that question.
“I can’t make comparisons of our team to anybody else,” Saban said. “I haven’t seen all these people play. I’ve seen LSU play a couple of times because they are in our league, and I think they have a fantastic team. … I haven’t even seen Oklahoma play so I can’t make any comparisons to what our team is.”
There are only two problems with that honest assessment.
Saban is one of the 59 coaches with a vote in this season’s USA Today poll – as are Gene Chizik, James Franklin, Les Miles, Mark Richt and Steve Spurrier from the SEC – and the USA Today poll is one component of the BCS rankings that will decide which two teams play for the national championship.
This seems like an appropriate moment to remind you to register for the Mumme Poll.
