I think it's safe to say Alabama head coach Nick Saban hates when the media and people around him underestimates smaller schools. At this week's presser he got all fired up and went on this rant about Charleston Southern. Language NSFW...

He's been reading up on his military memoirs, and wanted to use the "tin horn" line...even admitted it: "I don't know what you asked me, but I just wanted to say that."
He said NOTHING he needs to apologize for.
He's so sick of the Bamatards, he just can't wait to haul arse.

lol nobody even downplayed Charleston Southern. I don't know why he feels the need to make this speech a few times a year. He's the one bringing up the fact that they're playing a cupcake.

Love this. THIS is why Saban has the program where it is. THIS is why you never see Bama slip back to 8-5 seasons. This is from the Belichick school. You prepare your team every moment of every day. No scenario is overlooked and intensity is the norm. You graduate a QB, next guy better step it up, graduate a LB, next guy better play just as good or you will find yourself processed. Excellence is expected, not hoped for. Even Charleston Southern keeps him awake. He wants to be perfect.

This is what a real coach looks like. LSU would have a locker room full of trophies had he stayed here. Love this mans fire.

See quote below from Great Quotations of World War II:

PATTON (35 K)General George S. Patton, Jr.

"Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom."

"I don't want to get any messages saying, "I am holding my position." We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living shite out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to goover, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; LIKE shite THROUGH A TIN HORN!"

"There is only one tactical principle which is not subject to change; it is, 'To use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wounds, death, and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time.'

Excuse me, but the proper expression is "shite through a goose!" It's used to describe quickness.

He should have said we have a want to not finish second on the back end of a contest. That's what the pumpers think is real coaching

Power 5 schools should not have these games scheduled in November. Simply no excuse for it.

An honest answer, although dickish, is a lot better than polite coach speak that ultimately doesn't make sense. Nothing wrong with having passion.
