I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but there’s going to be a pretty big game taking place in College Station this weekend. Of course, two-time defending champion Alabama is looking to get revenge on Heisman winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M, the only program to beat the Crimson Tide on the gridiron last season.
Naturally, the hype for this game has been off the charts. Both teams, however, had tried to downplay the implications and importance of the game as they try to stay focused before the showdown. Today, however, Saban just threw a little fuel on the massive fire of hype with this not-so-subtle quote:
Saban: Texas A&M has one of the best offenses in college football, maybe in the history of college football.

So you’re telling me that the best defensive team in football, which has won 3 of the past 4 national titles, is going to try to get revenge against one of the greatest offenses of all time? I guess I’ll tune in.
