New Alabama coach Nick Saban puts one foot in the grave of former Alabama coaches:
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) â€” Nick Saban couldn’t figure out how to beat Auburn, either. Brandon Cox scored on a 1-yard sneak with 3:58 left and the 25th-ranked Tigers played stingy defense in a 17-10 win over Alabama that extended Auburn’s winning streak in the bitter rivalry to a school-record six games.
On the bright side, I guess, there wasn’t a whole lot of scoring going on for either side. It wasn’t a complete stomping. Alabama had some beautiful plays (and the sound of whining Auburn fans when a pro-Bama play stands after review is music to the ears).
However, watching the last several games, it looks like Alabama just can’t find any sense of consistency in their game. Maybe Saban can change that by next season.
I certainly hope so.
But, if not, I’d rather see Mal Moore get his walking papers than Nick Saban.
