A defensive deity, inventor of the Concussion.
Ugly- lack of intensity, lack of focus e we hitch resulted in dropped passes, blown coverages, missed lane assignments on kick coverages, etc!! CNS has been saying this shit all year and no one wanted to hear it!! Maybe this slap in the face will wake them up. Maybe a good ass chewing by Coach on players and several coaches will have the desired effect and everyone will pull their head out of their ass and get dialed in.
"I think this is a dangerous game. It's a trap game for us. We had kind of an emotional game last week. There was kind of a lot of emotions involved in all the relationships leading up to that game. Now you're playing a team that's lost a couple of games that nobody thought they would lose. But what people have to remember is that they have a young quarterback. This guy is inexperienced. That's probably caused them some issues in terms of their consistency on offense. The rest of their team is as good as anybody's team in the country. They're fifth in the country in defense. Only give up 12 points a game. They've got a great front seven. They've got capable players"
-Nick Saban, earlier this week. Words have meaning.
I will say, I've heard numerous players over the years say that Saban is usually much harder on them after wins than he is after loses. Often times, the "I told you so..." talk is how it goes, and the loss stings the players more than his words would. If at any time he thinks his team is losing confidence he will build them back up.... but, if the team is still sleep walking in the clouds, he will light them up and bring them back down. I bet we will find out this week on Monday and/or Wednesday when he speaks to the press which one it is by his tone and words.
