Think Alabama head coach Nick Saban is satisfied with his team's performance in Saturday night's season opener? Of course not!
In a press conference on Monday, His Sabanic Majesty used a rather blunt metaphor in describing what he felt 'Bama showed him while dismantling USC 52-6 Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The quote, which is courtesy of TideSports.com's Cecil Hurt. Has Saban claiming that "We've (Himself and Alabama) got to we can get into the ring with pit bulls. I'm not sure we've shone that yet."
Saban: "We've got to show we can get in the ring with the pit bulls. I'm not sure we've shown that yet."— Cecil Hurt (@CecilHurt) September 5, 2016
Saban really shows off his West Virginia roots in describing future opponents as "pit bulls." It's also a reminder that next year is the 10th anniversary of NFL free agent quarterback Michael Vick's arrest on animal cruelty charges for his involvement in a pit bull fighting ring. He might want to be a little more careful about that in the future.
