Nick Saban isn’t a fan of fans.
Don’t worry, we’ll make this less complicated in a second. Following Alabama’s 62-10 win over New Mexico State, Saban used part of his press conference to call out Crimson Tide fans – again.
The head coach has criticized Alabama fans in the past for not showing up to games against weak non-conference opponents.
He did so yet again on Saturday.
Here’s what he had to say about Crimson Tide fans, per 247Sports.
“Everybody wants to be a part of the team. Everybody wants to be No. 1, but everybody don’t want to do what the beast does. Everybody wants to be the beast, but they don’t want to do what the beast do.
So, everybody’s got to make a sacrifice. You want to be the lion? Everybody got to do something. Everybody wants to be No. 1. If I asked that whole student section, do you want to be No. 1? Nobody would hold their hand up and say I want to be No. 4. They would all say No. 1. But are they willing to do everything to be No. 1? That’s another question. You can ask them that.”
Fans should have no trouble supporting the team the rest of the season. The schedule facing the Crimson Tide doesn’t get any easier after a road trip to South Carolina next weekend.
The Tide and Gamecocks kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
