Colin Cowherd is at it again, ladies and gentlemen. The outspoken radio host took a break from trolling Iowa today to take a shot at Alabama, calling the program “bland” ever since Nick Saban took over and that it was “the Wal-Mart of college football”
I hate to say it, but Cowherd is right. Alabama this year has been very much a dull TV show called “How Derrick Henry Will Dominate This Time” and the team under Saban in general has been very much like John Cena. You know they’re going to win, just not how.
That isn’t to say that Alabama’s teams have been bad. Saban has put out top-tier teams since arriving Tuscaloosa and has three championships to prove it. But there’s no denying that up until the College Football Playoff became a reality, there was little parity in the game and it became a very ho-hum case of who the Crimson Tide would defeat any given year, with the lone exception being 2013 when Alabama stunningly lost to Auburn in the SEC Championship Game.
But even with the College Football Playoff and general bias favoring the SEC truly existing, Alabama still is able to practically run the table playing in a conference where, as Cowherd said, quarterback play isn’t exactly top-notch.
You may not like the WAY Cowherd made his point, but it’s certainly hard to argue against him.
