Hugh Freeze can’t wait to play the Alabama Crimson Tide again. Freeze was formally introduced as the new head coach of the Auburn Tigers Tuesday, and in his speech, he mentioned that he is looking forward to Auburn football playing the Iron Bowl while dropping a harmless warning to Nick Saban (via Nathan King of 247 Sports).
“You don’t take this job if you’re not built to want that,” Freeze said of Saban and Alabama. “I welcome that. I want it. I want to be in that arena. I want to — I just really, really, really enjoy that type of game, and I have a great respect for Nick. He and Ms. Terry have been really good friends to us, too. But I hope they’re a little nervous today.”
