College football is by far one of the most unpredictable sports at any level of play, so why is it people already think they know who the national champion will be just six weeks into the 2012 season? 2011 was one of the craziest roller coaster rides in the history of the BCS rankings. Upsets dominated the headlines and after most of the contenders had been wiped off the board only...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says the latest Southeastern Conference weekend shows how little predictions mean in college football.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide, which plays at Missouri Saturday, returns from an open date to a different SEC landscape - except at the top. Saban said Monday Florida's win over LSU and South Carolina beating Georgia shows the game's parity.
Prior to the start of the 2012 football season, Alabama was considered to have a very difficult schedule. The Crimson Tide opened the season in Dallas against eighth-ranked Michigan and had to go to 10th-rated Arkansas two weeks later. There were other difficult road games, too, not to mention some tough home contests.
Alabama may have had a bye last week, but that didn't call for head coach Nick Saban to take a "mental break" of any kind. He said he may have left town, may have watched other games Saturday, but all the while he was honed in on his own team.
On the SEC Coaches' Teleconference Wednesday morning, Missouri head coach said that Alabama is a team that doesn't have any weaknesses. Nick Saban would probably like to disagree with that statement.
Try as they might to get away from questions regarding 2010, the Crimson Tide is off to the exact same start this season as they were two years ago. But a win in Columbia this weekend will change the course of comparison.
