Alabama Football Has New Battle-Cry: 'Don't Waste A Failure'

Alabama Football Has New Battle-Cry: 'Don't Waste A Failure'”

Though the seven years he had already spent as an Alabama assistant helped in building his reputation, he had to go back to work to settle in.

Nick Saban is hoping Alabama will find a way to grow from that loss to Clemson in the national championship game.

Saban was joined at Media Days by three Crimson Tide upper-classmen: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Calvin Ridley, and Bradley Bozeman.

How do you do that? The Alabama defense has traditional been so good that it frankly didn't matter who stood under center. "This gets earlier every year", Saban tells Birmingham's main sports-talk station, as onlookers stare. The idea that Saban's reign as the king of the SEC - and really, college football - will end at the hands of a protégé looks sillier by the day. It takes a tremendous amount of accountability. While there was no proof that the Tigers' influence led to the cancellations, coaches involved made it clear that something wasn't quite right. "We lost because of small details".

He said on Wednesday that there isn't a single SEC team he doesn't have respect for, and claimed "there's a lot of parity" in the league. "And I think there was a lot of time and circumstance involved in me coming to Alabama". Saban said he's been working hard on that through the summer and has really improved. Alabama was a juggernaut all season, crushing whatever team stood in their way week after week. He's a star in the making, and we can't wait to see what he does this upcoming season for the Crimson Tide. And yet the sting of barely losing last year's national championship is the perfect learning tool to motivate his team to chase down another SEC title, another College Football Playoff berth, another national championship.

Derek Mason believes Vanderbilt is on the rise and wants people to come see for themselves. As far as a timeline on when the battle will end, Jones was mum about that as well.

Florida has been served up as the foil to Alabama in the last two SEC title games.

By definition, SEC Media Days is not necessarily a fan event, but the Southeastern Conference makes accommodations for those itching to see their favorite players.

SEC Media Days continues tomorrow. The radio corridor is always busy, with local stations set up at tables lining each side.

Until proven otherwise, Alabama remains the team to beat in the SEC. Couple this with recent comments from the 65-year-old Saban that he has no intention of retiring anytime soon, and that means misery for the rest of the league. Aguayo made 19 of 26 field goals (.731) and his 51 conversions without a miss extended the team's streak to an NCAA-record 302. The drama surrounding Rebels coach Hugh Freeze won't be the first time a pending case added to the intrigue. "I don't know if it's that big of a gap. And that's certainly the kind of team that they have this year".

Beyond nabbing new collectables for this wall, Bradlee enjoys just talking to his idols.

According to ESPN.com's Alex Scarborough, Saban wants his team to use the loss as a learning experience: "We played against a really, really good team. and we weren't able to finish the game like we needed to". Savage later became general manager of the Browns from 2005 to 2008.

Senior running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel combined for nearly 2,000 yards for the Bulldogs in 2016. They took turns celebrating back-to-back nine-win seasons and three bowl victories in a row.

Counting two conference championship games, Alabama has won 17 SEC games in a row and is 47-5 (.904) since 2011. If we feel like he can play winning football, I think it's important for us to allow him to do that so that if he gets in a situation where he needs to play, he's going to be able to play winning football.

"It's not about everybody else", he said.
