It's never too early to create a sense of urgency in your preparation. For Coach Nick Saban, this summer has allowed him to plant some seeds to what complacency can lead to and he has used video to drive a point home to his team. Here is what ESPN.com reported:
Alabama football coach Nick Saban wants to make sure the defending national champions take nothing for granted.
Saban said Tuesday during an Athens (Tenn.) Area Chamber of Commerce benefit dinner at Tennessee Wesleyan College that he recently showed his team a tape of James "Buster" Douglas' stunning 1990 knockout of Mike Tyson as a warning to avoid complacency.
"You become the target," said Saban, whose team is seeking its third straight BCS title and fourth in the past five years. "Everybody's got our name circled. Everyone wants to beat us. You've got to get ready for that. When the game comes, everybody wants to win. Who prepared to win the game the right way?"
