Alabama head coach Nick Saban visited ESPN on Tuesday and talked about the challenge of getting his team to play Oklahoma as to "try to play in a consolation game."
On Wednesday, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops was at ESPN and wasn't too happy about Saban's comments. Here is what he had to say, per ESPN
"They didn't look like it was a consolation game on that first drive when they scored a touchdown and everyone thought they were going to rout us," the Oklahoma coach said. "I've been in plenty of those [non-national title games]. We've played in a bunch of national championship games, right? ... That's a good one.
"So that means I've got a built-in excuse the next time we don't play for a national championship?"
One big bowl win, and Stoops is fired up. What do you think about his comments?
