    Declared last night before the game that there was no way OU was going to be able to beat Bama and that he couldn't wait to hear the excuses from ole Bob Stoops about the SEC.

    He was just on ESPN and said that Bob Stoops outcoached Nick, Gus Malzahn outcoached Nick.

    He went on to say that he was ready to declare Nick the greatest coach in college football history, he said right now he doesn't even know if he is the best coach in the state of Alabama.

    I won't believe that unless it is confirmed by Phyllis from Mulga or Harvey Updyke

    So has the worm turned and now people are starting to believe Bama won on bought talent?

    P&G_wheelz007 Football anyone?

    Saban lost the last 2 games of the season. 1 bad decision away from playing for his 3rd straight NC.

    Talk to me next year if Mahlzan beats him again. Mahlzan might turn out to be a flash in the pan.

    As far as Stoops goes -- how many of these big games have they choked in? Too many to count. Lost to a mediocre Texas team this year.

    But hey, if it gets the Gumps all crazy and worked up .... Let 'er rip.

    And LSU was 2 minutes away from heading to a second NC game in 2012. I'm sorry but retroactive history is fun for wishes and dreams but is not an excuse for poor coaching.

    I dunno, he has a QB about 1/4 the talent of Cam Newton, yet his offense is nearly as lethal.

    This QB will only get better throwing the ball, making decisions, etc.

    The question becomes can he take the high caliber high school recruits he has been getting on defense in these last couple of classes and turn that defense into one that rivals what they had in 2010. If not, then he will turn into A&M, fun to watch but a few too many losses due to inept defense. Obviously they are lucky that wasn't the case this season.

    Finebaum knows how to troll his listeners. He takes trolling to new levels.

    You are overstating Marshall's talent.
