On the Pat McAfee Show Thursday afternoon, Alabama coach Nick Saban revealed that his wife, Terry, received some harassment from Florida State fans after the Crimson Tide made the playoff over the Seminoles...
quote:

“I mean, a lot of Florida State people called me,” Nick Saban said via On3Sports. “I got thousands of phone calls and bad text messages and called every name in the book. Miss Terry even got called a few names. They did. We got in the playoffs and they didn’t.”

“I was, you know, I saw Florida State fan, you know, when I was recruiting in Florida, and he kind of gave me the business and I said, ‘Hey, look, we were left out last year. We lost two games. We ended up fifth. We were the last team out. And we had a pretty good team. We lost two games on the last play of the game.’ It was our fault that we lost those games, but we got left out so we had a choice to make.”

63-3 and opt-out U. FSU showed their true colors. And this article content even cements their lack of class. Not a surprise honestly.

Nick Saban helped sucker punch and undefeated team. You and your wife just bought a 15 million dollar home in the midst of plenty of Florida State alumni. You will be richly deserving of all the crap that will be coming your way.

Wives and kids are off limits. Saban didn’t do a damn thing to FSU.

63-3. Fans need to embrace the fact that their beloved team had an opportunity to prove a point, and the only point they made is that there is no doubt the committee got it right. Call Mike Norvell and cry about that garnet-colored turd he dropped in Miami.

Nothing like Norvell did. He protested but I'd hardly call it kicking and screaming.

He's not whining. He was asked a simple fricking question so he answered it truthfully.
