OK, maybe he didn't actually compare his team's 1 touchdown loss to 9/11 or Pearl Harbor but to even invoke it in relationship to a stupid football game shows the overall intelligence level at that school.
C'mon, Nick... it's a FOOTBALL GAME and you lost by one touchdown. Will Alabama be fundamentally changed by losing a stupid game to a (much) lower ranked team? Will the networks pull out and stop funneling the millions of dollars to your salary? Will applications and/or attendance drop? Will the school's most prestigious professors depart for schools as a result of this "catastrophe"? Will the alumni stop supporting Alabama?
Well, OK, on that last one, maybe yes as long as this moron is the coach. But that would be a good thing.
