    The image of Yeldon in the end zone ó with LSU defenders strewn about in a quiet, deflated Tiger stadium ó is ultimately the lasting one of a fantastic all-around football game. Whether itís also one of the lasting images of the season might depend on Alabama finishing the year with yet another BCS title. That will be settled in the coming weeks, starting this Saturday as Alabama faces a pesky Texas A&M team. For now, though, it's all about AJ to T.J.

    "Just got to make the plays that have to be made," Square said. "Have to be a sure tackle. Canít let a 2-yard gain turn into a 35-yard gain. You know, you've got to get a guy on the ground, you've got to try and get as many three-and-outs as possible and the offense has got to get on the field and control the tempo of the game. You do that, and Iím pretty sure thatís the game plan this week, and thatís what weíre trying to do."

    Getting past LSU fullback J.C. Copeland, as UA's defense managed to do here, was no easy task Saturday.

    "I think everybody misinterpreted what I said about no-huddle," he said. "I don't mind playing against no-huddle. We don't mind that at all. That wasn't what I said, it's what you all interpreted it to be. "I just asked the question, 'Is this what we want the game to become?' That's for you to answer. But that doesn't mean we don't like playing against it. We don't mind playing against it. It is what it is. Our players don't mind playing against it. We played a little bit better against it than when the other team huddled up this past week. That's the worst we've played all year on defense, by far." Saban's frustration grew as he wrapped up his answer. "How do you explain that?" he asked the reporter. "Can I ask you a question. How would you explain that? Such an insightful question that you asked me. I'm trying to get some insight in what I'm asking you. How do you explain that?"

    Alabama, having won two of the last three national championships, may dispute that claim. Its Heisman contender, quarterback A J McCarron, embodies his teamís ideals ó with a steady, calming presence ó the way Barner does Oregonís. Each year, the Crimson Tideís defense, like the Ducksí offense, reloads and relies on its coachís expertise. Every Tuesday and Wednesday, Saban pits the first-team offense against the first-team defense, challenging the defenders to stop the run. In film sessions, the defensive coordinator Kirby Smart plays a highlight tape showing that dayís turnovers and sacks. It is a source of pride, the way Saban wants them to play, physical and relentless. "I want to set the standard and the tempo," said Damion Square, a fifth-year senior defensive end. To set the tone, Square said, "hit them in the mouth ó thatís it." "You can instill fear in any athlete hitting them in the mouth," he added.

    "We could not get off the field on third down in the second half, especially," Saban said. "I think they hit seven in a row in two scoring drives, and we didn't do as good a job on third down offensively ourselves, which was really a big part of the game. Even though they moved the ball, we still created lots of third-down situations. And we could have gotten out of both drives if we could have gotten off the field on third downs. "That's something that we need to address and certainly do a better job of. We didn't cover them in man-to-man. We didn't break to the ball well enough in zone. Just fundamentally didn't play what we needed to play to be able to have success."

    My eyes were closed," he said. He couldn't watch? "Not really," Hubbard said. "I was just praying, 'C'mon, please come through.'" But he could hear. Hubbard opened his eyes when "all I heard was yelling." "I looked up, and there was T.J. running down the sideline for a touchdown," Hubbard said of T.J. Yeldon's 28-yard score on a screen pass with 51 seconds left. The Crimson Tide held on to win 21-17. But the game wasn't over yet, Hubbard said. "All I saw was AJ," Hubbard said of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. "He caught the Holy Ghost sliding on the ground, and I kind of dragged him, telling him, ĎGet up, weíve got 50 seconds still left in this game. We have to win.í"

    Regrouping from an equally hard-fought game against LSU last season resulted in one of Alabamaís more sluggish wins of the 2011 season, a 24-7 victory at Mississippi State that saw Alabama hold no more than a 10-point advantage throughout most of the game. That performance, of course, came after a loss, a time when the Crimson Tideís hopes of making the national title game appeared foggy at best. Now, the Crimson Tideís destiny lies squarely in its own hands. One win over its final two SEC games puts Alabama in the SEC Championship game against Georgia (if it beats Auburn on Saturday) or Florida. Four more will send Alabama to Miami for the BCS national championship game. "Regardless of the outcome, I think players need to understand the importance of paying attention to detail and doing the little things right so that we can get those things fixed," Saban said. "We've got to forget about this last game. We've got to move on."

    "People don't realize, unless you are in the middle of it, the pressure. And having lost to them in the regular season last year, he really carried a lot of the weight of that on his shoulders. He felt like he let his teammates down some. So he didn't want to do that this year."

    "Something just hits me that tells me I have to do something," he said. "As a leader on this team, I have to make plays for this team. I know AJís going to come to me. I have to make plays. ... "I donít like to lose. Iím pretty sure nobody likes to lose, but for me, losing is not easy to have on your chest. I just donít like to lose."

    Alabama running back Eddie Lacy is nursing a sore ankle and is not participating in practice, but he is in uniform and is going through some motions with his unit. "Just a little banged up," Saban said in his press conference. "Tweaked it a little in the game." Lacy is expected to practice Tuesday and should be ready to play Saturday.
