Kirk Herbstreit praises Crimson Tide in big way: ‘Alabama never takes a week off’

Kirk Herbstreit has big praise for Alabama.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, the ESPN analyst touched on the upcoming showdown between the Crimson Tide and Florida State on Sept. 2 at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. He said the matchup “almost feels like a national championship game in Week 1,” which is an accurate read on the situation.

In addition, Herbstreit complimented the Crimson Tide in a major way, saying, “Alabama never takes a week off.” Check out Herbstreit’s comments, relayed below by BamaOnLine247’s Charlie Potter.

It’s not surprising to see Herbstreit voice this opinion. He has seen plenty of Nick Saban’s team in recent years, after all. Chances are, Herbstreit will study the Crimson Tide closely once more as Alabama tries to make another trip to the national championship game.

Certainly, the Crimson Tide will need to be focused when facing the significant threat that Florida State will present in the season opener. This will be a fun matchup, and it’s likely to be an entertaining in so many ways.
