“IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF IT, I WASN’T PLEASED WITH HOW WE PLAYED.” Nick Saban, following No. 1 Alabama’s 52-6 win over Southern California.
“Inconsistent,” Saban said after the game. “We had big plays, explosive runs. I think as the game went on, we did a better job, but early on in the game, we didn’t execute very well in the running game.”
“Look, I’m happy that we won,” Saban said. “And I’m proud of our team for beating a good team. And I don’t want you to think that I’m not. But, at this point in the season, I’m really focused on what we need to do to get better.”
