CBS is not the network it once was. The petty and foolish Tim Brando is the face of its college football coverage. Brando’s crusade against Alabama has turned him into a joke. He is an embarrassment because his pro-LSU, pro-Ole Miss bias shows in every broadcast. The rest of the CBS crew is equally biased. Who can forget how Mr. College Football led the crusade to get an Alabama football player in trouble after blocking the Georgia quarterback during the SEC Championship Game.
Not content to let Brando and Tony Barnhart be the punch line of CBS programming here comes Spencer Tillman making his own opinion known. Nick Saban is afraid of Texas A&M, Tillman said, according to the Tulsa World Sports Extra.
At least Tillman’s opinion is an opinion and not a crusade like Brando and Barnhart led following Georgia’s loss to Alabama. I bet that dramatic Georgia loss to Alabama still hurts these two. All that crying following the loss showed their pain. It could take years to get over the loss.
However, Tillman’s recent opinion on Alabama, Nick Saban and Texas A&M is comical.
A coach with three national championships in four years, top recruiting classes every year and the best defensive mind in all of college football is afraid of the Aggies.
It is laughable.
Without a doubt, Saban respects what Kevin Sumlin accomplished this year with A&M. Sumlin improved a program and put his quarterback into a position to be successful.
What makes Tillman’s opinion laughable is that his argument boils down to this: Alabama is not infallible and A&M showed its system works against Alabama and with great talent at A&M, Sumlin’s system will be better than at his previous coaching stops.
The same could be said about Les Miles and his LSU system.
Miles has the athletes and has shown he can keep a program among the top teams season after season after season.
Don’t forget, LSU showed in 2011 the way to beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa in the Game of the Century.
Of course, Nick Saban was so scared of Les Miles and the LSU system that Alabama dominated the Tigers in the BCS National Championship Game—a rematch that still irritates some CBS personalities like Brando.
Every time a new scheme or coach comes along, talking heads anoint it as the future of college football.
Of course, some talking heads take the rhetoric further.
Nick Saban is petrified of the spread and Tim Tebow.
Saban answered that opinion with the masterpiece known as the 2009 SEC Championship.
If history shows anything, Saban doesn’t get scared. He gets motivated.
When Saban is motivated, he gets revenge.
But let us all ignore history. Saban is afraid! The dynasty is already over! The king is dead. Long live the king!
Respecting Texas A&M, Johnny Football and Coach Sumlin is not being afraid of them. If only CBS television personalities were capable of understanding that.
CBS needs to reconsider its college football pregame and halftime show. With bias on display, how can anyone take this network seriously?
