Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns take on his former boss Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide this upcoming Saturday in a monster macthup and it appears that Saban isn’t too worried about Sark having any special insight on how Bama runs plays.
During a recent press conference Saban was asked about the difficulty it is facing a team led by one of his former assistant coaches.
Sarkisian, the current head coach at Texas, was previously the offensive coordinator at Alabama.
Saban went on to answer the question in the coldest way possible.
“We’ve played several teams who know us. But you act like we don’t know them,” he said.
