"I'm trying to get our players to listen to me instead of listening to you guys", Saban said.
Now, here is the obvious followup question to Saban blaming the media for writing too positive about Alabama: "Would you prefer we randomly trash your kids in an effort to bring them back down to Earth?" "I said this early and I told our team this, this is a different A&M team", he said. Damien Harris led the ground attack with 14 carries of his own for 124 yards and a touchdown, while Bo Scarbrough added 55 rushing yards with his team-high 15 carries.
"I think games like that are more important to our team in terms of our future than the big blowout wins because you're playing in a hostile environment against a great SEC team", Alabama tailback Damein Harris said Monday.
Fitzpatrick's interception was one of the key plays of the game. I think you can sit here and talk about what they have not done as a team, or you can say they should've beat Texas A&M and they're very capable of scoring a lot of points and being a very good team. I don't think we executed the way we'd like to with the consistency we'd like to in the game.
The victory for the Tide moves them to 6-0 on the year, 3-0 in conference, while Texas A&M falls to 4-2, 2-1 in conference. "When you play that hard and you play that long nobody's happy".
Remove those two plays, and Alabama rushed 42 times for 119 yards (2.8).
"We just didn't play as well tonight and you have to give them a lot of credit for it", Saban began. He accounted for five tackles, including three tackles for loss, one forced fumble, a pass breakup and a fourth quarter interception that thwarted an Aggie drive at the Tide one-yard line.
Mother Nature affecting gas prices across the state
The lowest price available there without a wholesale club membership was $2.45 at a smattering of stations throughout the county. On Monday, analysts were quoted on financial news sites saying the storm wasn't believed to have caused significant damage.

Rescuer of Jasmine Block gives Jasmine the reward money
He didn't have to help her and he did. "He risked a lot of things and put himself in danger". "Right away I recognized her". It was that decision that would change the course of numerous lives - especially that of a 15-year-old Jasmine Block.
Alabama's first turnover since the first half of last November's win over Auburn occurred midway through the third quarter, when senior receiver Robert Foster fumbled after a short catch.
The Tide had run 638 plays and gone 37 quarters since their last such miscue.
Next up is Arkansas, which will be another heavy underdog when it visits Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday night.
The Arkansas Razorbacks will look to bounce back after falling to 2-3 this season and 0-2 in SEC conference play after a 48-22 thrashing at the hands of SC. Trevon Diggs will come back and try to practice some today. The same could be said of the current Aggies compared with Manziel's first team - the flashes are there, but A&M (4-2, 2-1) likely won't finish 11-2 like that surprising 2012 squad did. Junior defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs racked up 10 tackles, with his previous college career best having been four against Colorado State last month.
Mond started the drive with a 20-yard run to get the Aggies in field goal range, but then made a key mistake.
Alabama lost its first turnover of the season and allowed 300-plus yards for only the second time.
