Nick Saban reflects on 2010 loss to South Carolina: 'We got the lining kicked out of our britches'
Back in 2010, Nick Saban took the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide into South Carolina to take on Steve Spurrier and the Gamecocks.
That trip did not go well for the Tide, as they ended up losing 35-21 to the Gamecocks. This year, the Tide will make the trip to Columbia again.
On Wednesday at SEC Media Days, Saban reflected on that loss, saying Williams-Brice Stadium is a difficult place to play:
What does Nick Saban remember about 35-21 loss to USC in 2010: "I remember quite a bit. We got the lining kicked out of our britches. That’s always a challenging place to play. That’s going to be a difficult game for us (Sept. 14), and our players need to be ready to go."

That Week 3 matchup this year is being looked at by many as a potential trap game for the Crimson Tide, and Williams-Brice is a very difficult place to play.
What happens when the two teams meet remains to be seen, but it should be one of the most-anticipated games of the early portion of the SEC schedule.
