”Basically, what I mean by that is as a head coach when you have energy vampires on your team who never do what they’re supposed to do and take all your energy as a coach,” Saban said on Monday. ”So you’ve got five guys who take all your energy and never get to enjoy the other 95 guys who do everything right.

Blake Sims completed 19 of 31 passes for 211 yards and one touchdown. They played with such poise against the defense of Mississippi State. Also, they stayed with the gameplan without turning the ball over.
