MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - It’s been a historic past two years for the Crimson Tide. Back-to-back National Champions and now picked to repeat this season. With the success comes the bulls eye on your back, and Nick Saban knows it.
“And that means everybody’s got to bring their A-game, a combination of all the individuals being able to do that is what creates an identity of the team,” said Saban.
The only identity Alabama seems to have – is a winning one, and Nick Saban has made sure that remains this same this season.
“That’s our goal, that’s what we want to do as a team doesn’t really matter – nothing else matters. There’s no external factors that matter at all, to any player on our team – it’s all about how they perform in this game. It’s not about what they did last year, it’s not about their girlfriends, it’s not about anything but playing this game, playing your game – A game, preparing for this game, focusing on each play of the game, like it has a history and life of it’s own, if you can do that, none of those other things matter.”
Winning is the priority for Saban and his team, as it’s always been. The objective now: is to beat Virginia Tech.
“The goal has always been here – focus on the things that we can control, the things we can control is how we play, how we perform, how we prepare.”
