Nick Saban: FSU will "probably be No. 1 in the country"

DESTIN -- Alabama coach Nick Saban is known for hyping up his opponents.

So it's probably no surprise what he said about this year's Week 1 opponent, Florida State, on Tuesday before the SEC's spring meetings began.

"Florida State has a great team and a great program and will probably be No. 1 in the country," Saban said.

If not No. 1, at least in the top five (and probably top three). There's a reason SBNation said in January that their Sept. 2 meeting in Atlanta might be the biggest season-opening game ever.
