Saban said what?

I am happy to see any SEC team whoop a non-conference team.  However, as a graduate of Mississippi State I am not a big fan of Nick Saben or Alabama.  Love him or hate him, you can’t argue with his success and you cant argue with what he had to say to the press this week:

You know, there’s a tremendous balance between humility and confidence.  And this game is a struggle. It’s a struggle every day. And you’ve got to embrace it every day.  And you’ve got to go out there and try to earn it every day, to be as good a player as you can be. You’ve got to have a tremendous amount of character, confidence, mental and physical toughness. You’ve got to be driven to be the best. And you’ve got to be able to handle success.  I hate to be negative with anybody, but when you people start writing stuff about people that we’re playing that doesn’t give them the proper respect, that’s not fair.  It’s not fair to them, to their players who work hard to earn it. It’s not fair to our players, who need to respect them. And to make presumptions like you all make, it really really upsets me.  It really does.

Kudos to you Mr. Saben.  Your stock just went up a little in my book.
