Good ‘ol Saint Nicholas has not quite found the Christmas spirit yet.
On Sunday, Alabama head coach Nick Saban had the following to say about Florida and the BCS:
“It’s not really a great scenario. You play your way into the (SEC) championship game, which means you’re the best team in your division… It doesn’t seem quite right, but it is what it is. I don’t really know what me commenting about it is going to do to change it. But I don’t feel good about it.”
No. 2 Alabama will square off against No. 3 Georgia on Saturday in the SEC Championship game, with the winner taking a trip to the BCS National Championship game in Miami, while the loser will most likely miss the BCS-boat entirely.
Muschamp fired back at Saban when informed of his statements, stating:
“Well, I can switch and go to Atlanta if he doesn’t want to go to Atlanta and play the Dawgs. Be careful what you ask for, Nick.”
Florida, who arguably has the best resume in the nation (the Gators have beaten four of the top 13 teams), beat the one team that beat Alabama, and lost to Georgia.
Saban and the Crimson Tide have a chance to make the BCS scenario a moot point this weekend with a win over the Dawgs, but if Nick’s statements suggest anything, Bama could be in for a long, rough ride on Saturday.
