The hiring of Nick Saban three years ago really started to pay dividends last season for the Alabama Crimson Tide. A program that is used to winning national titles under legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant was treated to yet another title last season when the Crimson Tide defeated Texas in the BCS Championship game.
If you ask Alabama fans about which team will win the title this year, the answer is simple, the Crimson Tide of course. But for Saban, last year’s team and what they accomplished is in the past. He’s more worried about the 2010 version and what this younger, but still talented group can accomplish. (August 23, 2010, Page 2B)
