Saban has good reason to want Bama to respect Western Kentucky

There are some things that you can expect from Nick Saban at least once every year. One of those things is for Saban to be adamant that his team, the media, and Bama fans respect every opponent on the Tide's schedule. Saban is very passionate about this and his passion is often met with eye rolling by fans and the media.

Well again Saban is calling on everyone to give Western Kentucky their respect and this time we would all do well to listen.

Western Kentucky finished last year 12-2 and ranked No. 24 in the AP poll. Their first game this season was a 46-14 win over Rice, they aren't power 5 but they know how to play football. This game should be a good test for Alabama's freshmen quarterbacks and a decent primer for Ole Miss, but nobody better look past them or they could have hell to pay.
