Hey, assholes, you think Nick Saban’s got selfishly ulterior motives pushing that 10-second substitution rule? Well, screw you – he’s got proof he doesn’t. His proof is Nick Saban.
“For all of you out there that know what I’m thinking and the fact that I’m trying to create an advantage for the defense, I’m not trying to create an advantage for the defense,” Saban said Wednesday in a meeting with local reporters. “I don’t even think we need an advantage. Why do we need an advantage? If you look at the statistics, we’ve been playing better than most.”
For a guy coming off two losses to teams running HUNH where his defense gave up an average of 40 points per game, that’s pretty damned awesome.
