Saban Suggests Bama Is The Ali Of College Football

If you’re looking for a flaw with unbeaten Alabama, occasional slow starts might be the area to investigate.  Here’s why:


* Alabama led Penn State 7-3 until there were 10 minutes to play in the first half.  Final score: 27-11

* Alabama was tied with Arkansas 7-7 until there were five minutes to play in the first half.  Final score: 38-14

* Alabama was tied with Florida 10-10 at the end of the first quarter.  Final score: 38-10.

* Alabama led Vanderbilt 7-0 until the final seconds of the first half.  Final score: 34-0.

* Alabama was tied with Mississippi 7-7 at the end of the first quarter.  Final score: 52-7.

* Alabama was tied with Tennessee 6-6 at the end of the first half.  Final score: 37-6.


Kevin Scarbinsky of The Birmingham News asked Nick Saban yesterday if he had concerns about his team’s slow starts.  Apparently not:


“I guess the expectation is, if you’re Muhammad Ali, you’re gonna knock everybody out in the first round.  I don’t think he did that in every one of his fights.  Sometimes he sparred.”


Scarbinsky said that Saban “downplayed the slow starts and accentuated the strong finishes that have defined his team.”  He also came about as close to bragging on his squad as you’ll ever hear.
