Subscribe to Tide 102.9 on

After a day off, Alabama head coach Nick Saban was back in front of the media on Monday to begin Arkansas game week.

Saban, as he always does, shared a few thoughts on the previous game against Texas A&M to start the appearance.

“Even though Texas A&M really played a good game, played hard, showed a lot of heart in the game,” Saban said. “You know, we played a pretty ordinary game for us. I don’t think we really executed the way we’d like to with the consistency that we’d like to in the game. I think that it’s something that, as coaches, we take responsibility for, but also want to take responsibility for getting everybody to respond the right way so that we have a chance to improve.

Now the Tide turns its attention to the Arkansas Razorbacks, a team that is 2-3 through the first five games.

“I think you can sit here and talk about what they have not done as a team or you can say they should have beat Texas A&M and they’re very capable of scoring a lot of points and being a very good team.”

Here are the topics Saban addressed on Monday:

  • Provided an injury update but specifically mentioned Trevon Diggs and Tony Brown.
  • Alabama defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs impact and what he’s done well to this point.
  • How to use a close game like Texas A&M as motivation for the rest of the season.
  • Josh Frazier’s development as a player.
  • Wide receiver Robert Foster bouncing back from a tough game.
  • Damien Harris’ ability as a runner and his breakaway ability along with the running back rotation.
  • LaBryan Ray’s opportunity to play on this team and his role moving forward.
  • The young wide receivers and how they’ve looked so far.
