by Patrick Schmidt Alabama head coach Nick Saban compared Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott to Tim Tebow at Monday’s press conference in what could be perceived as a dig at the former Florida and Heisman winning quarterback

Nick Saban faced the media on Monday in anticipation of Saturday’s SEC showdown when his Alabama team welcomes Mississippi State and Heisman candidate Dak Prescott to Tuscaloosa and while attempting to praise Prescott and compare him to Tim Tebow, he also took an unintentional shot at Tebow.

Saban said Prescott reminds him of Tebow, the former Florida Gators quarterback who won two national titles and a Heisman during his time in Gainesville, but also said Prescott is a very good passer.

The quote was not intended to be a criticism of Tebow who has been often criticized for his passing mechanics and lack of accuracy which led to a brief career in the NFL, but it was interpreted by many to be Saban taking a shot at Tebow.Cecil Hurt @CecilHurt Follow

Wasn’t intended. RT @chadbelletete: Tebow burn? RT @CecilHurt: Saban: Dak Prescott “reminds you of Tebow but is also a very good passer.”

The Tebow-Prescott comparisons are not new and neither are they off point. Prescott wears the No. 15 in tribute of Tebow who made the number famous at Florida and both are tough, physical runners who played for Dan Mullen who was the offensive coordinator at Florida before he became the head coach at Mississippi State.

Prescott hopes there will be more comparisons between the two later this year when Prescott hopes to win a national title and a Heisman Trophy. He can take two steps toward both of those with a win against Saban and Alabama in the biggest game of the year in the SEC.

    Dak is a great qb btw. I hope he wins the Heisman.
