David Pollack Doubles Down On Viral Nick Saban Moment

Videos by OutKick

David Pollack definitely isn’t walking back his comments about Georgia now owning college football.

During halftime of the national title game blowout between Georgia and TCU, the College GameDay member and former Bulldogs star declared Kirby Smart’s team has “taken hold of college football” while Nick Saban was sitting right next to him.

Saban’s reaction immediately went viral. It looked like the Alabama coach had a shot of pure hate injected into his soul, which is not something the rest of the sport wants to deal with.

In case you thought Pollack was going to walk his comments back in the face of Saban’s wrath, you’d be wrong.

He doubled down on Twitter and tweeted there were “no lies being told” in the viral moment.

The former college football star also added he was surprised by how viral the moment had gone and then dropped some stats for the haters.

David Pollack has no regrets.

It was at this moment right here when David Pollack might have accidentally re-awaken the beast that is Nick Saban.

Look at Saban’s expression. That is a man who was just humiliated on national television during a game he would give anything to be playing in.

There’s no doubt Nick Saban is going to remember this moment for a long time, and that’s bad news for any team that runs up against the Crimson Tide.

Instead of walking it back and letting sleeping dogs lie, Pollack doubled down and let the world know he meant what he said about Georgia dominating.

He’s a much braver man than most college football fans. Nick Saban rules with an iron fist and is known for crushing his enemies.

Clearly, David Pollack doesn’t care now that Georgia has two straight national title rings.

Alabama might be on the warpath in 2023, and you’ll likely be able to tie it right back to this moment. To Pollack’s credit, he’s owning it. The Georgia legend isn’t backing down. Welcome to big boy football.

  1. As a long time Alabama fan I hate to admit it but Pollack is correct. Kirby Smart and Georgia rule college football right now. Bama’s defenses haven’t been the same since Smart left for the Georgia job. He and his staff do a great job in recruiting and developing players much like Saban used to do.

  2. Alumni or not, he simply stated the truth about the current state of affairs. It does not take away from anything Saban and Alabama has accomplished. Like it or not, Dawgs on top for now and favored to do it again in 2023.

    • So it isn’t OK to use facts to have an opinion, start a conversation or debate because of who you say it to? Or you’re scared Saban has some magic formula which he hasn’t been employing, but now will be awoken? Huh? Strange nothing article, ‘supported’ by insertion of nothing twitter ‘confirmation’. By the way do byliners get paid for inserting twitter drivel to flesh their 300 words, or is this just follow the leader with NYT where lazy ‘journalists working from home’ make nothing into bigger nothing?
