Alabama is playing FCS school Charleston Southern this week, a cupcake opponent that would be very easy for the Crimson Tide to look past. Well, some of those turkeys in the media might be overlooking Charleston, but Nick Saban sure as hell isn’t.

In proving his point that it’s unwise to assume FCS teams aren’t up to snuff, Saban reminded everyone of Alabama’s 2011 game against Georgia Southern, which the Tide won, but not before surrendering 302 rushing yards. This tangent leads to the use of a great old-timey simile: “They ran through our ass like shit through a tin horn, man.” Okay!

Saban then finished up with some wise words about marriage: “You get excited about getting married, aight, but after you’re married for awhile, you gotta have a process to make it work, aight.” Damn... it’s true.
