They came here with this idea that they believed. Even hung a sign to proclaim it on the revered statue of Bear Bryant that stands in front of this glorious palace of college football. Mississippi State believes, all right. Believes more than ever – like we all should – that Alabama is so good and so completely in a class by itself, the only thing that ends the Tide's chokehold on the sport is the departure of the man who started it all. And Nick Saban isn't going anywhere. "We're not working to be better than other teams," says Alabama center Barrett Jones. "We're working against ourselves." If that wasn't clear before, you better believe it is now. That was Saban, veins popping out of his neck, screaming at backups late in another rout in the toughest conference in college football.
