    He said after the season that the players needed to be motivated next season too... to play angry... and he said something along the lines that he will manufactor a reason for them to play angry if he has to.

    He certainly did it the start of training camp this year... recall how he bashed the team as inept, how unskilled the wr's were, how out of shape the oline was... he does know how to push buttons (which is why guys like Urban and probably Saban can't cut it in the NFL... their psych tricks don't work as well on a 7 year veteran making mega millions as they do on a naive underclassman)
    "Last year we couldn't win at home and we were
    losing on the road. My failure as a coach was
    that I couldn't think of anyplace else to play."

    Anyone think any team is touching Alabama?

    Yeah, me neither.

    I was watching him and he has a weird throwing style similar to Tebow where he winds up before throwing. i think Manziel could run into Tebow=like issues at the next level.

    They only faced one good offense this season and they lost to them. I think Ohio State and Oregon could both put up a really good fight.

    Ohio State will get their chance. Hopefully, we will be ready.

    I'm drooling at the thought of a Saban led Alabama team facing an Urban Meyer led OSU team once he's had the chance to really put his full stamp on the school.

    I dont know why, it will be as bad of a game as the one we watched on Monday. Beating shit Big 10 teams by a couple of points isn't going to beat a Saban led Alabama team. Saban is so locked in it is scary.

    I'm not saying he'd have beaten him this season.. but once Urban puts his full stamp on this team, it'd be a hell of a game.

    Urban loves speed & knows the SEC well. Once this team is full of all his recruits, he'd give a Saban led 'Bama team a run for its money.

    That is a lot of predictable rhetoric from osu fans about Meyer, but I think a lot of you need to realize why he left in the first place.

    Saban loves the stress, loves the grind and loves all of the craziness that comes with oiling the machine.

    Meyer looked stressed out even talking about it during post game analysis. Someone will be able to unseat Alabama once the playoff system starts, but for right now, I just dont see how the gumps lose this anytime soon. I mean, all anyone did was talk about the running game, imagine had they still had Trent who had a damn good rookie season.

    Why don't you go post on an Alabama message board loser

    Meyer pointed it out when he was on the panel during and after the championship game. When he was asked what was most remarkable about Bama's dominance he said it was that Saban is able to keep all his coaches. Most coaches move on as soon as the first championship is won to be higher profile jobs, but Saban is able to keep them there. That is huge. They've always had the the talent in Alabama(all they have is football). They didn't get dominant until Saban got there.

    If braxton improves his passing, he is the type of QB that Bama would have trouble with(Manzell, Newton).

    But let's be honest here, bama wins these games in the trenches and if we don't have an offensive line that compares to theres, they have the clear advantage.
