Could Alabama beat the worst NFL team? Will Muschamp says no chance

While which team is entitled to the dubious distinction of the NFL's worst is up for debate, the chance that it would lose to Alabama is not, according to Florida coach Will Muschamp.

Muschamp was asked about South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier's comments from Tuesday about Alabama being favored in a game against one of the lowly NFL teams that are struggling right now, such as the Kansas City Chiefs or Jacksonville Jaguars.

Here's what Spurrier had to say Wednesday on "The Dan Patrick Show."

"Alabama, gosh, they look like they could beat a couple of those NFL teams that I've watched on Sundays," Spurrier said. "I think a lot of the oddsmakers out there that usually know what's going on, I'd guess Alabama would be favored by a little bit."

Muschamp was having none of it. He laughed at the notion when asked Thursday.

"I would have a hard time seeing that," Muschamp said.

Muschamp, like Spurrier, of course, has experience at the next level. But unlike Spurrier, Muschamp said he learned that there is a distinct difference between college and the pros.

"That maturity of those guys, there are full-grown men playing in that league," Muschamp said. "The speed of the game when I left LSU to go to the Miami Dolphins was more than noticeable on the field. It's a grown man's league."

On his Twitter account Wednesday, Todd Fuhrman, a former oddsmaker for Caeser's Palace in Las Vegas, also disagreed with Spurrier's take.

"Despite Spurrier's comments, he's not a linesmaker and Bama would be a 3 TD dog at MINIMUM to even the worst team in the NFL," Fuhrman tweeted.

And yes, that's counting that team up in Jacksonville.

"The Jaguars," Muschamp said, "are going to be fine."
