Saban goes on tirade over Tide’s passive practice
Interrupting football practice with spring break is never recommended. But that didn’t seem to lessen the wrath of Alabama coach Nick Saban, who lashed out at his players on Monday for their lackadaisical performance in practice. “(The) focus wasn’t what it needed to be, mental energy wasn’t what it needed to be,” Saban said. “I’m not pleased with where we are and I think this team needs to develop a chemistry in attitude and leadership, and understand what they are trying to accomplish, how important it is to them. And make the investment they need to make to do that.” Other similar articles:

Holding no grudges against Georgia, Alabama commit Kellen Williams said UGA may have been a little more attractive had he been able to meet coach Mark Richt during his junior day visit. “That was the only junior day visit I took where I didn’t meet the head coach,” he said. “I still haven’t met him. I’ve been in Coach [Nick] Saban’s house, and I just didn’t get that family feeling like we did in Tuscaloosa. I guess I wasn’t a high prospect on their radar.”
