Alabama is getting what some believe is an extra bye week when it plays 9-1 Charleston Southern this weekend. Nick Saban believes every game is a must-win situation, though.

During his weekly Wednesday presser, Saban snapped at a reporter, who simply asked about Charleston starting quarterback Austin Brown.

“He’s a really good player and he does a really good job with their offense. You know, these teams that are typically the best teams int heir division are … really good teams. You all may be taking the week off, but I’m not. A lot of people taking a lot of things for granted and I get asked questions like, ‘Well how important is it for the young guys to play this week,’ well how the hell do you know they’re going to play?”

Saban then referenced back to a lacadasical blowout win over Georgia Southern as motivation.

“If we don’t play good against them … Ya’ll don’t remember the Georgia Southern game, do you? I don’t think we had a guy on that field who didn’t play in the NFL and about four or five of them were first round draft picks, and I think that team won a national championship that year but I’m not sure.”

Nick knows he’s wrong for that.
