This week’s game against Georgia is another big test for the Crimson Tide. Nick Saban explained why it is going to be a difficult assignment to play the Bulldogs.
â€œThey are always very well coached,” Saban said. “You are not going to find them out of position very much. They are sound and solid in everything they do. They are always physical. They always play with great effort and toughness. They are always going to have great skill players. That has always been a trademark of his teams. They have good quarterback play and great skill players of offense, a lot of players on defense who play with toughness and can run. They are well coached, discipline and are always going to be in the right spot. You are going to have to beat them and they are not going to beat themselves very much.â€
And here is a little more Saban said about the Bulldogs:
â€œObviously this is a very challenging game that we have. These are the kind of games that you should come to a place like The University of Alabama to play in. Played at Georgia before and it is a good atmosphere to play a football game in. To be on national TV is great for our players but the most important thing is we stay focused on what we need to do on the field so we have the best chance to be successful. Georgia has an outstanding team. Undoubtedly one of the best teams in the country, top two or three for sure. A team that has been pretty dominant in the way they have played all season long on both sides of the ball and on special teams. Mark Richt is an outstanding coach and has done a good job there. They won the Sugar Bowl last year and were very impressive last week against Arizona State . They have some outstanding individual players. Obviously a great running back in (Knowshon) Moreno , their quarterback is arguably the best quarterback in the country in terms of his passing efficiency, running their offense and his leadership. They have two fantastic wide receivers. (A.J.) Green and (Mohamed) Massaquoi both have big play ability and are big guys. Their defense is certainly one of the best defensive teams in the country. They are difficult to run against, are difficult to score against and have a lot of starters and a lot of experience back on the team. This team has balance offensively, they play well; they are coached well; that is why they are one of the best teams in the country. So it will be a real challenge for our team to play against one of the best teams in the country on the road. We need to stay focused on the things we need to do to improve as a team and play our best football.â€
