Nick Saban Prepares Team for Southern Miss

Nick Saban Prepares Team for Southern Miss

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(TUSCALOOSA, Alabama) — Alabama head coach Nick Saban is preparing his second-ranked team for a showdown with the Southern Miss Golden Eagles on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide are coming off a 41-0 victory over Florida Atlantic and Saban said on Monday that he is sticking with a two-quarterback system of Blake Sims and Jacob Coker.

“We need them both to work to improve, both players did good things in the game and both did things they can improve on,” Saban said of the quarterbacks.

Saban said he was happy with their performance against Florida Atlantic, but he wants to continue to push his team. He also noted what the team needs to improve on as they head into Saturday’s game.

“Finishing drives on offense, tackling a little better on defense,” Saban said.  “Do you have focus, stamina to get better? We have a lot more to prove.”

Alabama Picked to Win SEC

Alabama Picked to Win SEC

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(HOOVER, Ala.) — Despite not even reaching the national championship game last year, SEC media members selected Alabama as the preseason favorite to win the conference this college football season.

The poll was revealed on Thursday, the final of four SEC media days. It showed what was a surprise to no one: Alabama vs. Auburn for the conference title.

The Crimson Tide (154) earned more votes than every other Southeastern Conference school combined. Auburn (75), South Carolina (32), Georgia (19), and LSU (9) rounded out the top 5.

“Arguably, they’ve got the greatest collection of football players ever assembled for a college team,” said South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier. “If the recruiting services are correct, and they’re pretty much correct.”

Alabama also led the conference with nine players named to the preseason first-team. Wide receiver Amari Cooper and running back T.J. Yeldon were the top two vote-getters among all players.
