There has been plenty of reason to criticize the performance of the team this year. But many of the posts on this board this season have been ridiculous.

Saban takes a minute in this clip to hit the Bama fan base with a dose of reality. We have great fans at Clemson but many lose perspective. Nobody wants to win more than the players and coaches. To think otherwise is as Saban puts it “self absorbed”.

I agree it has been ridiculous at times on TNet this season and Saban is right for the most part.

However, coaches are going to have to choose their words differently now because, like Clemson, some of the Bama players are getting paid to play, as well as getting, their scholarship benefits.

They are not getting paid to play! They are endorsing product and business! Using their Name and their likeness!
The school does not pay that!
Even if they were getting paid Saban was still correct!

Don't disagree that Saban was correct. But some are getting paid to play football. If not being paid by the school, they are getting paid because of the school they attend and their talent. Do you think they would be getting paid 5, 6, 7 figures to graduate high school, stay home and get a job a Mickey D's? I don't think so. You can be as semantic as you want but it won't change the fact that they are getting paid for playing college football.

so why should coaches watch their words?

I have never been a fan of Lord Saban, but he hit the nail on the head with this talk.

applies to Alabama fans but Clemson fans as well. Unfortunately, the ones that it applies to on here will still think it’s not them.

My favorite line was when he said (paraphrase) “When I got here you were happy just to win a game, now you aren’t even happy winning.”

I can remember the days sitting in The Valley when we were lucky to win 2 games in a year. These are some great times still and The Best Is Yet to Come!

Clemson never had a period where we were “lucky to win two games”

That's about as loud as I have ever heard him speak. Normally, he does that Belichick mumble thing. :)

Yep. A dose of reality is the perfect description. And it applies to Clemson fans as well as Bama fans. I didn’t like Saban when he screwed the dolphins but have really gained a lot of respect for him over the last 5-6 years.

I 100% agree with what Saban said. I also have to remember the other side of the coin, coaches. Coaches get paid enormous salaries now.
Coaches get paid plenty and are not above criticism.

Sure, it is fine to criticize any time (free speech and all that).

But the fools reveal themselves when they b_ _ch about their teams not winning by huge margins of victory and about their coaches being awful when their players don't play perfectly.

The foolish fans' argument that 'players get NIL money ... this makes them professionals ... therefore professional players are above making mistakes' is asinine.

We all get it ... when teams (college or pro) lose games consistently despite being awash in resources & good players, criticism of the coaches is understandable.

But for the 'fan' to believe that such criticism is justified when their team(s) do not perform perfectly simply exposes them as being puerile, ignorant jack_ _es.

Many fans take it far too serious. Football has its place. Many people put way too much priority on it.
