Publisher's note: Magazines are nice and Sports Illustrated is up there with the best of them, and it's really cool that Alabama QB AJ McCarron is gracing the cover of it this month. However Coach Nick Saban is focused on winning games and the weather conditions on the field be it practice or game day.
As far as this publisher is concerned, I'm waiting for the Swimsuit Edition to roll out, or should I say "roll tide' out.
Fundamental SEC: Alabama's Coach Nick Saban seen here at a recent press conference, lets a reporter know he has little time to follow the news or read magazines, including a recent cover of Sports Illustrated featuring the Tide's quarterback, AJ McCarron.
Saban who has always exhibited a focus on success quips, "I watch the Weather Channel for 10 minutes in the morning while I have a cup of coffee so I know what the weathers gonna be so if we can practice inside or outside."
While Coach Saban commented, "I'm happy for AJ" and "I'm sure he looks great", Saban did not seem impressed with the reporters question. In a recent 60 Minutes interview on CBS, Saban talked about everyone "buying in" to a well defined standard, expectation and team effort.
