The popular WWE star Goldberg made a career by showing us when it's an appropriate time to yell "You're next " to a future opponent.

That time, of course, is when the next contest is scripted and one knows they're going to win.

Vanderbilt showed on Saturday a perfect example of when not to get chesty and yell, "You're next" at a future opponent.

That time, of course, is when Alabama is the next opponent on the schedule.

Let's rewind a week to the postgame scene in Nashville after Vanderbilt knocked off Kansas State for a big home win. Nifae Lealao found a microphone after the contest and sent a warning shot to the almighty Crimson Tide.

Now let's take a quick look at how Alabama reacted to the comments on the field.

Stat Alabama Vanderbilt
Score 59 0
Rushing yards 496 40
Passing yards 181 38
Total yards 677 78
1st downs 38 3

The Crimson Tide absolutely destroyed their inferior opponent 59-0, holding Vanderbilt to a laughable 78 total yards of offense.

Maybe it's not a great idea to provide bulletin-board material to a team that has won four national titles in the past eight seasons and that you haven't beaten since 1984.
