Nick Saban talks Alabama at Media Day

Posted by Mark Dondero | July 19, 2012 / 09:07pm | College Sports, Local Sports

Nick Saban says some of Alabama's veterans can use past experiences of trying to repeat as national champions to avoid missteps.

He notes that players who were on both the 2009 and 2011 title teams know the potential pitfalls and what made them successful.

Alabama fans and players view the 10-3 record in 2010 as a disappointment given the program's expectations. Tight end Michael Williams says this team saw "what complacency did to us." This year's team is predicted by media attending Southeastern Conference media days to finish second in the Western Division behind LSU.

Saban says it's hard to carry momentum from one year to the next because you lose a quarter of your team. He says this squad seems less affected by past success than the 2010 team.
