Alabama may have had a bye last week, but that didn't call for head coach Nick Saban to take a "mental break" of any kind. He said he may have left town, may have watched other games Saturday, but all the while he was honed in on his own team.
College football is by far one of the most unpredictable sports at any level of play, so why is it people already think they know who the national champion will be just six weeks into the 2012 season? 2011 was one of the craziest roller coaster rides in the history of the BCS rankings. Upsets dominated the headlines and after most of the contenders had been wiped off the board only...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says the latest Southeastern Conference weekend shows how little predictions mean in college football.

Nick Saban believes Alabama faces a unique challenge with a visit to SEC-newcomer Missouri on Saturday.
The test seems far greater for the Tigers, however, as they face the nation's No. 1 defense without their starting quarterback.
In their first trip to Faurot Field in 34 years, the top-ranked Crimson Tide try to frustrate redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser and prevent...
Nick Saban, who is head coach at Alabama, and Gary Pinkel, head coach at Missouri, first met as student-athletes at Kent State University in the 1970s. Both have stayed in football as coaches, and both have been head coaches for many years, and they meet for the first time this week.
(Eds: Updates with quotes, details. With AP Photos.) By JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer Nick Saban will have a reunion of sorts from Kent State's 1972 Mid-American Conference championship team, since he couldn't make the first one.
The Alabama coach was a safety on that team 40 years ago, while Missouri's Gary Pinkel was the star tight end. They'll be opposing coaches...
