Alabama coach Nick Saban at a presser, on how nobody should automatically assume his team will waltz over unheralded Charleston Southern this Saturday (Alabama is favored by 20 points):

The relevant passage, as it were, is around 1:10; Saban is describing how his dominant national championship team a few years ago had considerable trouble stopping the equally unheralded Georgia Southern team.  More precisely, he recalls, "They ran through our ass like shit through a tin horn".   A southernism, it appears.
