I disagree. I would favor UGA over aTm. Their defense is good when they're on.
they may not have any thing against bama .....but, they do have something against the SEC as a CBS product and would love to have the BCSCG without an SEC team so they do not have to promote their competition ( the SEC ) ...remember they are paid on TV RATING......that's the "real battle" for #1.....money & rating ....SEC teams do not help ESPN in the biggest Game of the year in Jan....
Cool and you're welcome to that opinion, but I'll stick with the facts. Not publicly blaming the media and not believing that your players mindset have been effected by the media aka outside influences is two completely different things/subjects. No he wouldn't blame the media publicly (for a loss that is) so that we agree on 100%, but he clearly believes they're capable of influencing his players mindsets which Saban himself acknowledges in the video below and has preached on 24/7 since he's been in the business of coaching. So in conclusion, your opinion is in direct contradiction to what Saban believes to be fact. Sorry.
I'll just leave this right here for ya. Anything else I can help you with today?
Saban is unhappy with the overwhelmingly praise of his team after the Tide dominated Michigan in their opener.

Just saying...that article is from Sept 5.
Correct. The video was to simply serve as a reference to the previous two pages of posts I made on this subject. It served its purpose.
Incorrect. Saban does not believe that the media caused us to lose to aTm. You're putting words in his mouth.
Never said that bro, not once. How someone can have 885 posts without first learning to read is mind boggling and deserves a standing ovation. Well done!
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
I'm amazed at how many discount the win over LSU. They circled that game in January and wanted to pummel us. We get them at their house, they are riding a 22 game home win streak. We played ok, but certainly not our best game from an execution standpoint. We were stymied offensively most of the game, had qb coming out party for their kid, and were missing tackles on top of that. They smelled victory, and though not the point total they wanted, they could say they whipped us. We snatched it from them. We were due a letdown - easy to predict, shouldn't be surprised. We should recover, but we don't need to take the next two games for granted. We need to improve as a team and re-establish our domination over teams playing sound football.
Agree totally....We should not struggle at any point of the game against AU. If we have turned the corner. We whip them from start to finish imho. I will be very worried about playing UGA. If we look like we're sleepwalking in the AU game.

I disagree. Murray shrinks in big games, their o-line is suspect, injury at WR, didn't play up to expectations this year, and they still have Richt as HC. Florida wins with any offense and had just came off tough SEC games. Georgia cruised along after SCar humiliated them. I think you'll see Georgia is what we thought they were- an average team with a great schedule.
LOL...We won't lose to UGA. They are as soft as a baby's behind.
Some people bring a knife to a gun fight. Mark Richt brings a Super Soaker 2000.
You said the media affected our mindset. You're strongly inferring that the loss had something to do with that. There's no use in backtracking though. Posts are permanent.
No they're not
I'm definitely suggesting the media got in our heads (to a degree) and Saban himself feared that but no I'm not suggesting the media "cost" bama the game.
For example: If a QB has an ankle sprain but plays anyway and goes 10-25 with 3 picks and no TD's, at the end of the game no one says dammit we lost because our QB had an ankle sprain. Instead they say dammit we lost and those 3 turnovers were the difference in the game. See the difference? Bama cost Bama the game, but I think the media (to a degree) became Bama's "mental ankle sprain" which is exactly what Saban tried to prevent.
