Nick Saban Highlights SEC Media Days


Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban was the highlight of the final day of the 2013 SEC Media Days.

In his sit-down with the gathered press in attendance, Saban balked when asked about how the two-time defending BCS National Champions go about reinventing themselves for a new season.

“Each and every year, we are trying to improve the process of how we do what we do,” Saban said. “We spend a significant amount of time on quality control, in terms of things that we need to fix or improve on.”

Saban said that improvement isn’t just on the field; significant time is spend on improving the whole student-athlete, and the coaching staff works hard on ways to do just that.

The Alabama coach spoke on a wide range of topics within college football, from the no-huddle offense to playing ‘cupcake’ games while trying to win the toughest conference in the country.

On the fact that Alabama was picked to win the SEC by the gathered press, Saban was, as usual, skeptical of his team’s chances:

“It seems a little bit crazy to try to predict what’s going to happen in the season, Saban said. “In the last 21 seasons, you in the media have only picked the right team four times.”
