What Nick Saban said after Alabama's blowout win over Kentucky
As Nick Saban noted in his postgame press conference, Alabama got off to “a little bit of a slow start” against Kentucky. Entering the second quarter, it was a 7-3 game. A 21-point second quarter made it 28-3 at halftime. The second half was all Crimson Tide, as UA came away with a 63-3 victory over the Wildcats.
Saban didn’t have much to nitpick in a 60-point victory. He touched on injuries and called his quarterback “greedy” for a longball that ended up being a turnover.
Here are some of the highlights of what Saban told reporters:
- On Miller Forristall, who didn’t play: “He has a sprained ankle and a little bit of a shoulder. We could’ve played him today.”
- On Slade Bolden: Twisted his ankle. Doesn’t know his status yet, but Saban “doesn’t think it’s that bad.”
- On the Jones’ deep ball picked off by Kentucky:”No disrespect to Mac, but I think we’re getting a little greedy.”
- Saban elaborated, calling it a “hope throw.”
- On time of possession:“The last time I checked, you get nothing for time of possession.”
