There’s something to be said for confidence, especially for a 51-point underdog heading into a hostile environment to take on the top team in college football.
But confidence is one thing. Providing bulletin board material for the No. 1 team in the nation is something else entirely.
“They ain’t what people think,” Henry told the Palm Beach Post. “They’re good and everything, but they can (be) beat, too. They just execute well. They just execute and beat you.”
If the junior was trying to help his team shrug off any intimidation they might experience when they take the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, good for him. But you can bet the quote has already made its rounds through Alabama’s locker room.
The Crimson Tide white-washed Western Kentucky and Arkansas in the last two weeks, scoring 87 total points in a pair of shutouts. The Owls enter Saturday’s contest fresh off a 56-20 defeat at the hands of No. 7 Georgia. They have just one victory in their last 17 games against FBS opponents.
