Nick Saban’s first stop of his Crimson Caravan took him to Huntsville, Alabama, where the Crimson Tide coach addressed local reporters.
Coming off a disappointing end to the 2014 season, in which Alabama was upset by the eventual national champion Ohio State Buckeyes in the semifinals of the inaugural College Football Playoff, Saban addressed what he needed to see from his team moving forward.
“We need to get our mojo back a little. We’ve got to get our identity back,” Saban said. “We used to be a team nobody wanted to play.”
Saban also touched on the satellite camps that Big Ten teams are beginning to popularize in the South. “We’re not allowed to have satellite camps in the SEC. I certainly think that you know, we need to address this if it’s going to be a competitive disadvantage and other people are going to have these kinds of camps. I think it’s something we’ll address as a conference.”
