Auburn Tiger (or perhaps War Eagle, or Fighting Tiger Eagle, or something) alumnus, Charles Barkley, has never been one to shy away from a microphone. Nor has the Round Mound of Rebound ever been one to mince words, and he’s certainly not doing that when it comes to his thoughts on the prospects of Alabama winning another national championship; or, as any true college football fan has come to call it, Mythical National Championship, that is.
“I always tell people the three saddest days of my life were the day Elvis died, the day JFK died and the day Alabama fired Mike Shula,” Barkley told reporters at a presser for tonight’s GMAC Bowl in Mobile. “This could be the longest year of our lives if they win. They are the worst winners in the history of civilization.”
Well said, Sir Charles. Alabama folks are pretty uppity, yeah? Citing all those Championships during 4 loss seasons, and stuff. Frump it here for a video clip of Barkley’s comments at the press conference and full article from Al.com.
