Former Bama, Bryant Assistant Schnellenberger Says Iron Bowl Loss A Needed “Serving Of Humility” For Saban

93817_h_schnellenbergerGo ahead, Howard.  Tell us what you really think.

Paul “Bear” Bryant protege Howard Schnellenberger let Alabama coach Nick Saban have it with both barrels during a television interview in Louisville yesterday.  Asked about the missed 57-yard field goal that Auburn returned 109 yards for the win in last weekend’s Iron Bowl, the ex-coach had this to say about the man who made the decision to kick it:

 

“I thought that was the greatest thing in the world.  Not for the (Alabama) football program.  For the football coach.  He needed a big serving of humility.  He’s been Mr. Perfect.  He’s been Mr. Arrogant.  There’s no reason for that.  Every coach all the way down to Little League knows that you cover that field goal…

They just made a stupid play.  Every coach in the country knows you don’t go into that play thinking, ‘I hope the kick is good.’  You go into it telling your players, ‘What if they run it back.’”

 

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Nick.

Of course, Saban did say after the game that his field goal team is taught to fan out and guard against a return (which drew some negative responses from a few who felt Bama’s coach had thrown his team under the bus.)

Schnellenber served as Alabama’s offensive coordinator from 1961 through 1965.  He went on to become head coach of Miami (FL), Louisville (where he thumped Bama in the 1991 Fiesta Bowl), Oklahoma and Florida Atlantic.

Ole Howard Schnellenberger couldve been equally dominant if he had not had been directly related to Howard Schnellenberger.
