Nick Saban won’t be coaching in tonight’s BCS Championship Game featuring the Florida State Seminoles and Auburn Tigers, but he did find a way to be a part of the game as a guest analyst on ESPN’s College Gameday where he made a statement sure to upset non-SEC fans.

The SEC is aiming to win their eighth consecutive title and are 9-1 in BCS title games with the lone loss coming by LSU when they lost to fellow SEC west team Alabama when they took the 2011 title.

For the nine BCS Championship Games featuring SEC opponents the average margin of victory is a staggering 14.8 points per game, so I’m sure a lot will agree with the comments made by Saban who is killing it on ESPN during their pregame coverage.

In addition to this comment Saban compared Florida State to an SEC team and said Johnny Manziel is one of the best competitors he’s played against in his 40 years of coaching.
