Georgia Southern’s Clever Response to Nick Saban’s FCS Rant
Surely you've heard Nick Saban's latest rant by now. It's traveling through the internet like s*** through a tin horn.
When asked about Alabama's upcoming FCS opponent at his latest press conference, Saban went off topic to explain why his team can't overlook a school like Charleston Southern. He vividly expressed his memory of Georgia Southern's team running all over a loaded Crimson Tide defense in 2011.
And he was right. The then-FCS Eagles were the only team all season to score more than 14 points against that national championship defense.
If you haven't seen the rant, take a minute to enjoy it here.
Georgia Southern didn't miss an opportunity to soak up the unexpected spotlight and had posted this clever response on Twitter Wednesday night.
The picture shows exactly what Saban was talking about. Georgia Southern's running back accelerates right past NFL starters Courtney Upshaw and Mark Barron. The Eagles would finish that day with 302 rushing yards.
Alabama will try to avoid a similar fate on Saturday as Charleston Southern brings its own triple option attack to Tuscaloosa.
