Skip Bayless Dumb Tweet of the Day

It's been a while since I've written one of these, but make no mistake Skip's hot takes have been flying. However, when I saw this one I couldn't resist; it's a new temperature even for Bayless.

It is absolute LUNACY to say that Saban is 1) not a football genius, and 2) "laughably overrated". He has created the most dominant dynasty in college football since Miami in the 1980's and even then the Crimson Tide's accomplishments in recent years far outmatch the Canes. Saban has built Alabama back to the powerhouse it once was, and has effectively become Bear Bryant 2.0. Anyone who argues with that is pretty much saying the sky isn't blue.

But lets just get down to the defense. Saban put together the best defense anyone has seen in decade, maybe of all-time. He built Ruben Foster and Jonathan Allen into Butkus and Bednarik awared winners respectively, and they averaged allowing less that 300 yards per game all year and put up points consistently. Saying he is overrated is a joke. Big players have big games and that is what happened against OSU and in both Clemson games. Doesn't matter how good your defense is, when you play Tom Brady, you give up points. The Tide's defense was incredible this year and wouldn't have been without Nick Saban.

Once agian, Skip:
