To be fair, Skip Bayless had this coming. The FOX Sports personality who everyone seemingly loves to hate made a bold prediction about the Alabama-LSU game on Friday.
And it didn’t come true.
While on the set with UNDISPUTED co-host Shannon Sharpe on Friday, Bayless made the mistake of picking against Nick Saban and the No. 1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. He cited a hungry LSU team on its home field with an “overlooked” Leonard Fournette in the backfield.

Of course, as we now know, the Tigers lost to Alabama 10-0 in a defensive struggle in Baton Rouge on Saturday night. And Leonard Fournette? He was held in check by a smothering Alabama defense which allowed him just 35 yards rushing on 17 attempts.
So when it came time for a postgame discussion on Monday’s edition of UNDISPUTED, Sharpe came to work ready to let Bayless have it for his prediction. Sharpe compared the effort he saw from Saban’s Crimson Tide defense to some of the best defenses in NFL history in the midst of a hilarious on-air roast of Bayless.
“They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, that look on your face right now is worth one billion words,” Sharpe said in the middle of the rant.
