Steve Sarkisian’s comment about the Alabama showdown goes viral
Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian tried to downplay some of the hype that took place on Saturday in their Week 2 game against Alabama.
About his old team, Sark said:
“My goal is to be in Dallas by December 3. This game has no influence on that. We have no influence on their entry into the SEC Championship. But it’s a great opportunity. Great setting for college football.”
The coach’s comments sparked viral reactions from the college football world.
“I really love it when a head coach treats a hugely hyped helmet game like a high school jamboree,” Justin Ferguson tweeted.
“Not something you would want to hear from your own coach, I guess,” replied Brett Greenberg.
“What kind of weak? [expletive] is this,” laughed Boot Krewe’s Mason Ginsberg.
“Sark in facing Bama: ‘death is an inevitability and I am willing to die,'” tweeted Bill DiFilippo.
“Oh dear,” said Adam Kramer.
The two traditional forces will face each other on FOX at noon ET.
