Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said the final words spoken by Saban were, "We fight." The Tide said it three times, then headed out to the field to apply an epic butt kicking.
Nick Saban makes history again. He wins his third BCS crown since 2003 after No. 2 Alabama shuts out No. 1 LSU in the title game, 21-0. Dennis Dodd says with a dominating defense, Saban becomes the dominant figure of the BCS era.

This part of the article should be sent to recruits everywhere:
"Not much. At least 44 Alabama players now have a pair of championship rings. If he were a school, Saban alone would lead everyone with three BCS titles. Only three coaches have won more titles in the wire service era -- Bear Bryant, USC's John McKay and Notre Dame's Frank Leahy. Every recruiting class he has had since coming to LSU in 2000 has experienced a national championship. That would be 2003 with the Tigers and 2009 and this season in 2011 with a Miami Dolphins dalliance in between."
That makes sense as the theme for the game. Saban was giddy after the game during the sit down interviews talking about how his defense fought for every yard and that they will get after your butt. Ive never seen coach so happy. Pure vindication. Now the loss on Nov 5th just seems like it was part of the plan. It gave us fuel for the fire for sure.
"We're modern-day gladiators, and that mental toughness is really important to have in a good team." Nick Saban
