Charles Barkley has never been shy about sharing his opinions, and he didn’t hold back in his latest appearance on the Dan Patrick Show.
Barkley opined that he believed his beloved Auburn Tigers had developed an “inferiority complex” because of the rise of the Crimson Tide in recent years.
Via SEC Country:
“We have an inferiority complex because the greatest football coach in history is over in Tuscaloosa. I think Nick Saban is the greatest college football coach in history over there in Tuscaloosa. … But Auburn is the greatest school. Once you go there, you are a part of a family, a fraternity. Even when I got back now, it’s the most amazing thing. When I travel around the country, the world, we say, ‘War Eagles.’ It is pretty special.”
Barkley is clearly not trying to throw shade at the Tigers, instead pointing out that having to deal with who he sees as the best college football coach of all-time in the same state is having an effect on Auburn.
