Saban Compares the loss to U.L.M to 9-11/Pearl Harbor. Losses like this Saban may find another job. The comparisons really do not make any sense. Anyway your thoughts?

Football coaches (and their teams) sometimes have a tendency to lose perspective, given they live in their own insular, focused little world during the season. That said, this is possibly the most jaw-droppingly disconnected-from-reality statement I've heard in sports since Stephanie invoked the 90's steroid trial while reacting to 9-11.

Saban also went on to say "I don't think anyone in this room would have bet that we would lose back-to-back games to Mississippi State or ULM," Saban said in his weekly news conference. "There's really a reason for that."

He said that reason has to do with suspensions, players being late to meetings or not focusing in practice. Then, there's the on-the-field problems. "Not finishing plays. Not finishing games. Not finishing the season," Saban said. "You get humiliated, and that's basically what happened."

Yep, Coach says that it's all on the players. Not that it could possibly be a coaching issue.

NCAA Coaches I love to root against:

1) Dave "AaaaaaPP!" Wannstedt (grudge from his days with Da Bears)
2) Charlie "No, No, This is Nothing Like Ty Willingham" Weis
3) Nick "My Word is My Bond" Saban

War Eagle.

ESPN is now reporting that Callahan is going to get the axe. Damn, that's a lot of coaches in the unemployment line now.
