There was a wave of people who declared the Alabama dynasty “dead” when the Crimson Tide fell to Ole Miss in September.
Peter Burns was ahead of them.
Back in July, the ESPN analyst appeared on the Paul Finebaum Show and predicted an 8-5 record for the Tide. He backed it up with a tweet, writing, “HATE the way their schedule lays out for them.”
This week, Burns told AL.com‘s Michael Casagrande the prediction was “horrible.”
“If you can’t laugh at yourself when you’re talking sports,” Burns said, “you’re probably in the wrong industry.”
