Alabama football coach Nick Saban launched into a profanity-laced rant after being asked a simple question about upcoming opponent, Charleston Southern.
Saban was asked what he thought about Charleston Southern quarterback Austin Brown. He responded with a convoluted rant about reporters and the media not understanding the fact that teams can’t overlook opponents.
Saban said in part:
You all may be taking the week off, but I’m not. A lot of people taking a lot of things for granted and I get asked questions like, ‘Well how important is it for the young guys to play this week?’ Well how the hell do you know they’re going to play?
The attitude in the room got getting increasingly tense, but that didn’t slow Saban down at all. He continued moments later adding:
Ya’ll don’t remember the Georgia Southern game, do you? I don’t think we had a guy on that field who didn’t play in the NFL and about four or five of them were first round draft picks, and I think that team won a national championship that year but I’m not sure.
And they run through our ass like shit through a tin horn, man. And we could not stop them. Could not stop them. Could not stop them because we could not get a look in practice. We couldn’t practice it right? And everybody said the same thing in that game. Y’all took a week off. This wasn’t important, so it’s not important to anybody else. It has to be important to the players and it has to be important to us.
The rant ended when Saban got snippy and asked a reporter if he seriously wanted to continue with another question. Saban has a history of going off the rails during press conferences. In October he had a similar rant when he talked about how little he cared about the media. (RELATED: Alabama Coach Nick Saban Lets The Media Know How Little He Cares About Them [VIDEO])
