Nick Saban reveals his message to Alabama players ahead of LSU showdown
Alabama will take on LSU on Saturday in what is probably the biggest game of the season through this point.
Keeping players focused on the little things is never easy during weeks like this, but no one is better at that than Alabama coach Nick Saban.
During an appearance on ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday morning, Saban revealed the message he’s sharing with his players ahead of this game (via 247Sports):
“The No. 1 thing is every player needs to challenge themselves and keep the energy level up. In games like this, the other team is going to make plays and you’ve got to be able to focus on the next play. If things go wrong, don’t go rogue and start thinking I’m going to play this gap and not that gap or whatever it is. Those are the most important things from a mental standpoint for every player in games like this.”
Will Alabama’s players be able to slow down Joe Burrow and the LSU offense? Will the Tide offense be able to find success?
