We are a week and a half away from the epic SEC clash between Alabama and Auburn on the gridiron, but former Tigers basketball star Charles Barkley is already getting the trash talk going.
Barkley appeared on WJOX-FM radio today when he delivered a message to the Crimson Tide faithful.
If you look at Barkley’s words, it would seem he believes that fans in Tuscaloosa are getting nervous about No. 1 Alabama’s meeting with No. 6 Auburn.
Barkley fired his shot exactly how you would expect Sir Charles to do.
Charles Barkley to Alabama fans on WJOX-FM just now: "You can hear them sphincters tightening up."

We will have to see if that rings true as the the game gets closer, but the Crimson Tide would be ridiculous to overlook the surging Auburn squad.
But let the trash talking begin.
Kickoff between Alabama and Auburn is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
