Remember how this spring started, with Nick Saban going off on one of his rants about how Alabama fans need to get their unrealistic expectations in line?
Remember the whole “cultural problem here in terms of expectations and all that stuff” speech?
Saturday, in the quiet of the team locker room after the madness that has become A-Day in Tuscaloosa, Saban threw gasoline on the fire.
“We can be an outstanding team,” he said.
He said that, even though he was not happy with the way his first defensive unit played in Saturday’s scrimmage. But by now you know that when Saban is hard on somebody, it’s because he believes they can give him more than he’s getting.
