Should people be offended by Derek Dooley's comments?

Read this story today about Derek Dooley, Tennessee Footbal Coach who was comparing his team to the Germans in WW2.

Check out these quotes:
"Right now we're like the Germans in World War II .Here comes the boats, they're coming. You have the binoculars, and it's like, 'Oh, my God, the invasion is coming"

"I don't want the German people to get upset at me,I'm not attacking them, but that's what happened. You had one group, they weren't worried about what the plan was and orders and all that."

"You had the other group, and they go 'Wait a minute, they told us the invasion was way further north,' where we had the empty tanks and we were hiding Patton out. 'We weren't ready for this now what do we do?' 'We better wait until Rommel tells us what to do"

Quite a history lesson druing a press conference.  These quotes are just stupid but I'm not sure to me they are that offensive.  But many people in this country are very senstive when it comes to comparing sports to the military.  Obviously there are no similarities.
