Nick Saban Had An Absurd Quote After Alabama’s Win

Adjust Comment Print

For a former rival like Tebow, who ended a Crimson Tide national title dream in the SEC Championship Game 2008 and then failed to repeat the feat in 2009, that's a different story. The student section was half-full for Alabama's 56-14 home victory over Louisiana Lafayette last week.

"He is a fantastic leader and you can definitely see that", Morris said.

The only positive from Arkansas' defense came early in the second quarter when it stuffed Alabama on a fourth-and-one that set up the drive ending in Storey's fumble at the goal line. Alabama receiver Henry Ruggs III picked up the fumble in stride and carried it the remaining 12 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead with 10:01 left in the first quarter. "This offense continues to get better, and it's the best we've played against the best team we've played". That included a 102-yard performance on the ground from sophomore tailback Rakeem Boyd, who carried the ball 15 times.

"I don't think that we really beat the other team when you give up 31 points like we did today, at least from the defensive perspective". "That's all you can ask for, and you've got to give credit to the coaches, the way we scheme them up and I thought we had a lot of great stuff going in".

Alabama had its way on the other side of the ball.

Technically though, Tagovailoa still received credit for the touchdown pass, so he opened the game with a ideal completion percentage for two scores. I don't care if you're playing Louisiana whoever or Hoover High School, you show up to the game and you support your team.

"We made a lot of mistakes on defense", said Saban after giving up 405 yards to Arkansas (1-5, 0-3).

University of Arkansas Coach Chad Morris said at his introductory news conference in December that the Razorbacks have made it a priority to recruit fast players on every level of the offense and defense.

Saban and Co. had little trouble dismantling Arkansas on Saturday afternoon, beating the Razorbacks, 65-31. "We need to prepare them better".
