Nick Saban's opening comments today with Tuscaloosa media....“After looking at the film of the USC game obviously we didn’t get off to the kind of start that we wanted to get off to in the game. I think the first quarter was a little shaky on both sides of the ball. As the game went on, we kind of settled in to the game. The players responded and competed and played through some adversity. We need to play with a lot better consistency, but we made some big plays. We made some explosive plays on offense. The defense was pretty consistent throughout the game, and I thought did a pretty good job of stopping the run and being able to play a lot of coverages that allowed us to minimize their explosive plays with some very good skill guys. Obviously the lesson to be learned is we want to be more ready to play and get off to a fast start. Start fast, and finish strong is something that we talk about, and obviously being able to play with a little bit more discipline and consistency will help us become a better team. I think that’s the objective."

HAPPY LABOR DAY & ROLL TIDE from the Wild Bill Show on 95.3 The Bear!!!
