Nick Saban Shares Lessons Learned From Time His Girlfriend Dumped Him

The dual-threat signal caller has averaged just under 250 yards of offense in four games as the starter, and in SEC play has averaged 187.5 yards through the air and 102 yards on the ground. The strength of Texas A&M's offense is its running game, as its top two running backs, Trayveon Williams and Keith Ford, have more combined rushing yards than any other running back duo in the conference. A&M would lose 4 of their last 6 and both quarterbacks in the process. "That was the game plan and we came in and executed".

When Alabama football coach Nick Saban often illustrates a point he's making by relating a story from his childhood, usually featuring his no-nonsense late father Nick Sr., it's obvious the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Alabama plays at Texas A&M this week at Kyle Field, which is about 95 miles from Houston, and Saban was asked whether he'd do anything special for native Texans on his team who may be returning to their home state for the first time since Hurricane Harvey.

"Anybody can give you trouble", Johnson said.

Nick Saban has an interesting way of getting points across to his Alabama football players sometimes, and we're about to share one of them right now.

"They're going to hear from everybody walking around that this is a different week when reality is it's not", Sumlin said.

"Whatever happened in the hurricane happened and it's a bad thing and we want to support everybody every way we can and we certainly did that as much as we could", Saban said. "We're looking to overcome that this year".

It's really one of the last games on the schedule where the Aggies don't have at least a 50/50 chance at winning.

First, the Aggies have not only talked about a desire to stick with the run, they've actually done it. That's 40 YPG better than where they were past year at this time and 85 better than where they ended up last season.

That run defense will no doubt face its toughest test to date, if not of the season, on Saturday.

"He's been able to replace his (assistant) coaches with other talented coaches, to where they haven't missed a beat", Sumlin said of Saban's knack for tabbing quality coordinators and position coaches. The pass defense will have to step it up to a level A&M hasn't seen yet this year to slow Alabama down. The storm may have passed weeks ago, but the SEC announced it was donating $100,000 each to Texas A&M and Florida to help out any faculty, staff, and students who may have been impacted by the storm's wrath.

Kevin Sumlin has gone 1-4 in matchups against Nick Saban since Texas A&M joined the SEC in 2012. "They're a very explosive offensive team". And he has seen his sad days and down moments get the best of him. If that's good enough, that's good enough.
