    Default "All those summers we didn't understand why we were doing it, it's all showing right now."

    This article speaks volumes about the program. I post this thinking, do people really think that Alabama has just lucked into these NC games... Because I've certainly heard a few fans mention that Alabama just got lucky the last two years with other teams losing. Anyways, thought I would share this because its a few guys being self reflective on what they've been thorough while at Alabama. Its sinking in...

    "We've been prepared for this, for me personally, five years," Williams said. "Nothing is coming as a surprise. I feel like I can handle every situation they throw at me outside of the field. Coach [Nick] Saban did well. He knows what he's doing.
    "All those summers we didn't understand why we were doing it, it's all showing right now."


    "All of it is making plenty of sense now," Williams said. "In my redshirt freshman year, I remember coming in after running, and you're sitting there and people are talking and teaching you about how you think and all that when you just want to go to bed, you just want to go lay down somewhere.
    "As you get older, you realize every teaching they give has a purpose."

    You can't buy this type of positive exposure, you can only process it...
