FAU DE inserts foot into mouth regarding Alabama
Wait, what? First of all, I can't imagine he believes FAU will be the one to beat the Crimson Tide. I'm sure he was just stating that another National powerhouse could beat Bama, and of course that can happen. Nobody, not even I, who happens to be a huge Bama fan, is saying they can't lose this year. In fact, I feel they have exceeded expectations already. And, I don't mean by being undefeated, but by embarrassing Michigan and Arkansas.
FAU is 1-2 on the season and just lost 56-20 at Georgia. Their win was against FCS Wagner, and they won that game 7-3. Not saying Nick Saban needs bulletin board material for any team, however, why give the players a reason not to sleep walk through this game? I mean really--Bama could play their back-ups and win this game by 2 touchdowns.
The best was FAU head coach Carl Pelini's attempt at damage control. Here's his quote regarding Bama... "as finely coached a team as I've seen" and noted that "they don't make a lot of mistakes, and you can't either if you want to have any chance at all." The only thing he didn't say is that Nick Saban walks on water and they are a lock to win the National Championship.
I don't know if Saban has any relationship with Pelini, or what he thinks of him and the program. The thing is, if Saban is going to fake a punt up 28-0 in the 4th quarter against Western Kentucky, then what will he do in this game? This could be a blood bath of epic proportions.
