Saban: ‘Miss Terry told me if we’re not playing good to get on their butt’

Throughout the first few weeks of the season, while there have been flashes, not many would say that Alabama was “playing good”. Certainly at least not up to the standard that Nick Saban has established throughout his more than 15 years in Tuscaloosa.

Saturday’s 40-17 victory over Mississippi State felt like the first full, 60 minute performance by the 2023 Crimson Tide against an actual opponent.

After the game, Saban revealed his secret sauce for getting the team to play better, saying that Miss Terry “told me if we’re not playing good, to get on their butt.”

After a performance like that, perhaps Coach should continue to take advice from Miss Terry with regards to coaching philosophy and getting this team to play right.

They’ll continue to need it moving forward.
