Spencer Tillman: Saban is scared to death of Texas A&M


quote:

But Saban and the Tide are not infallible, Tillman said. Texas A&M showed us that last season under first-year coach Kevin Sumlin and Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel, winning 29-24 in Tuscaloosa.

“Texas A&M is the model. If anybody is scared of Texas A&M, it’s Alabama,” Tillman said.

“Nick Saban is scared to death. Because now Kevin Sumlin not only has a system that has been proven to work as a counterpunch at lesser programs like the University of Houston, where you can win 12 (with) the scheme (and) the pace of the game. Now he’s got the Jimmys and the Joes that look just like Alabama’s guys getting off the bus.

“I spoke with (Sumlin) in the preseason, I said, ‘Coach, if you don’t screw this up, you’re gonna have something special.’ (A&M’s success in 2012) was not a surprise to me. A proven system with the type of caliber athletes that can make a difference, and the guy who’s concerned about it more than anybody else is Nick Saban. You’ve got a new player on the block in the West, and it’s A&M.”

I love Sumlin as a coach, think TAMU was one of the best teams in the nation last year, and think JFF is as legit as they come, but TAMU owes a lot of credit to the LSU/Alabama game the week prior to their game for beating Alabama.

I doubt Saban is fearful of any team.

convenient that he knew A&M would be successful from the preseason and that he wasn't surprised by A&M's success in 2012, but only feels the need to mention it in 2013

This is an understated point. I remember back when we played Tennessee in the Cotton Bowl. As soon as UT ran out onto the field, I knew we lost. They were so, so much bigger back then.

Nick Saban is terrified.

Luckily for him, crystal footballs work just as well as blankies.

I guess Tillman thinks Joeckel and Matthews will be in College Station forever.

Typically when you see your team's arse beat by another team, you tend to overcompensate said team with praise.

The Cotton Bowl is a big reason he's said this.

Let's be honest, where A&M fell on Bama's schedule is why Bama fell a few yards short of beating A&M.

Let's not pretend A&M's win was not owed to anything other than coming the week after Bama played LSU.

Bama was A&M's Superbowl and was the reason Manziel won the Heisman. No one outside the SEC knew who he was before the Bama game.

Didn't you know? Only LSU and Bama get recruits.

Here's the thing, Tebow did Alabama a similar way in the 2008 SEC Championship Game. The very next year, Saban met Tebow again and this time shut him down. Next year's defense will be better and faster than this year's.
