Saban, Alabama need to stop making excuses and give Clemson credit

Jul 18, 2019
Alex Scarborough
ESPN Staff Writer

HOOVER, Ala. -- Alabama's failure to give Clemson its proper credit at SEC media days on Wednesday was no accident. If you've followed Nick Saban's time at Alabama and what happens in the aftermath of those few losses the Crimson Tide have had to endure, then you weren't surprised when Saban questioned his former coaching staff's commitment and linebacker Dylan Moses questioned his team's preparation heading into the title game.

There were plenty of times in Hoover when Saban and players tipped their caps to the Tigers for beating them in the College Football Playoff National Championship, of course, but it was typically in the context of some larger excuse for why the Tide hadn't played their best. No matter the fact that they lost by 28 points, Moses said he believed they were still the better team.

Asked point-blank whether Alabama's best was better than Clemson's, Moses said, "Yeah, I think so."

.....

Call it what it is: excuses.

The better team would have had sense enough not to take Clemson lightly.  They had already torn your heart out in a championship game before, you should have been mindful of that, but you weren’t because you were cocky and can’t keep coaches in your factory long enough to remember.   That cockiness caused you to get your @zz TORE UP this past January.


And I loved every minute of it!  :clap:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
