If there is one thing that was proved about Alabama’s national championship win on Monday, it is certainly that they don’t have any kind of problem in Tuscaloosa. Earlier in the season, FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd and Joel Klatt had a lot to say about Alabama and Nick Saban.
Klatt talked about how the dynasty in Tuscaloosa was “over.” He then went on to say, “They have a Nick Saban problem at Alabama. He’s turned Alabama into an old Big Ten defense. It’s a big, slow lumbering…they’ve got some serious problems there. There are better programs out there right now than Alabama.”
If you didn’t know, the Crimson Tide had one of the best defenses in the country as they had the number one rushing defense by only allowing 70.8 rushing yards per game this year.
On Wednesday, Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey trolled Klatt and Cowherd on Twitter about their comments earlier this year. Humphrey made one of the biggest plays in Monday’s game as he recovered a surprise onside kick midway through the fourth quarter.
That is certainly a funny shot at two guys who have downplayed the Crimson Tide the most this season. I bet they won’t be quick to open their mouths about Saban’s club next year.
