Saban gives props to Coach Orgeron

Usually when Alabama does so after a rare loss, it chews up and spits out everybody left on its schedule, as it did two seasons ago in 2015.

"It all manifests from winning games, and it all manifests from every media outlet talking about them and we have to because they're the champs". "They are the benchmark", Orgeron said.

Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff, said there is no plan to expand the format beyond four teams with nine years remaining on the 12-year contract.

It would be a sexy pick to not pick Alabama this season. Florida State claimed the title with a win over Auburn four years earlier.

"I just think that it gave him a little bit more fuel", the player answered. "That's the great thing they've done in that program". But he also reiterated the difficulty of staying on the mountain top year after year.

-Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough and LB Shaun Dion Hamilton are expected to be full-go at the start of camp, Saban said. Steve Shaw showed us a low of examples of coaches going all the way out to the hash mark.

It was a madhouse at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham this morning, with Alabama fans crowded into the center of the lobby, some having arrived as early as 5 a.m.

Saban is at his best when teams try to beat him at his own game. (But first) we have three other opponents, starting with (Middle Tennessee). It's an itch that can simply never be scratched to satisfation. "We're all trying to catch up to Alabama". As it stands, Father Time seems like the only man capable of ending Saban's reign. What will the attack look like?

Can the Tide sustain one more season? We're pushing it every day and seeing what kind of limits we can hit.

"I was waiting for that one, man. That was like a hanging curveball."
You heard me comment on that before. That win streak that actually expands to 21 consecutive games if the Tide didn't forfeit a 17-6 victory in 1993 following the NCAA's ruling against former defensive back Antonio Langham of Town Creek.

"This is my 11th Media Days at Alabama, which I'm sure none of you thought would happen", Saban tells a room of local television reporters.

Last season's offense was led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, the SEC Offensive Player of the Year and SEC Freshman of the Year.

Saban said there were lessons to be learned from the 35-31 title game loss to Clemson.

"That's very true", Shaw said. Some things, though, still remain the same. He admits the things he remembers were small, including tardiness to meetings or "not wearing the right socks". "It was funny how that went", said Ron Shead. Is the SEC's long-presumed status as the top conference in college football in jeopardy not only in spite of, but because of the Crimson Tide's utter dominance?

His most prescient example has been on display more than ever in the past few seasons across the SEC East.

A new NCAA rule calls for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against any coach who comes on the field to argue an officiating call. "It's like me saying somebody said it's going to be a hurricane outside today". It was really good for me growing up to develop some of the attributes that it takes to be successful, whether it was commitment, hard work, perseverance, ability to overcome adversity, pride in performance. But it's the rule.

"Nashville, Dallas and Atlanta all have professional sports", Jaggers said.

Much of the talk through three days of SEC Media Days has been about chasing Alabama. He's so good that he has turned what once was the best conference in the country into a one-team league.

And while Saban is concerned about breaking in new players on defense, he's got a core of veterans that includes safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and tackle Da'Ron Payne.

"The exciting thing for me is we've got depth", he said.
