Yup, Nick Saban is getting pretty good at this whole college coaching thing.
Assembles the very best talent. Hires the very best assistants. Maintains maximum intensity 24/7, 365.
The highlight of the game for me was Bama QB A.J. McCarron and C Barrett Jones arguing with each other with a huge lead in the fourth quarter as a delay-of-game penalty was being called. That shows you how extremely intense and precise Saban runs his program…and how much his team buys in. They don’t want to make any mistakes. Zip.
Well, OK. They didn’t pitch a shutout last night.
But it sure felt like one.
Even in his post-game comments, Saban pointed out Georgia was five yards from being Notre Dame’s opponent.
The man is obviously still upset about how his team played against those Bulldogs in the SEC Championship game a month ago…which in retrospect was probably the very worst thing that happened to the Fighting Irish…aside from serving as the bounce-back, punching-bag opponent last night of course.
That’s why we likely may be hearing “Roll Tide” at a few more of these upcoming championship games.
Nick Saban’s mind is already focused on next season.
