    CNS Entering Uncharted Territory Even for Him - The ThreePeat

    CNS had 3 opportunities to produce a "repeat" (I guess it's ok to use this term now).

    Third time was a charm.

    But each time, starting with 2004 at LSU and then 2010 at Alabama his team lost three games and failed to repeat.

    He finally got it right this past year and managed to do it.

    NOW, he is in uncharted territory for even himself.

    We know the process is the same each year, but now how do you really keep this year's team hungry to win it all?

    Fire way...

    Different team. There is no defending a championship because it's not the same team. New faces and challenges await this team.

    I tell you, that 2010 was very disappointing. They should have gone back to back. I still can't explain all of it. "Miraculously" we turned it around last year. Well, spilled milk now. Time to work for a 3-peat.

    I'm thinking a minimum eight-peat

    I think sabans big challenge is sustaining beyond the 4th yr or so when he used to hunt other coaching jobs. Hes at the right place to do that because he has mal m. to bounce things off of and he learned from the master of sustaining football programs. But really.. saban probably dosent need any advice hes a pretty smart cookie. But i dont think he can do what he has done and will do in the future anywhere else but U of A.

    Agree 100%. The way we played the bowl game and dismantled Mich. St just gave us a glimpse of how talented this team really was.

    Which is a great reminder to this year's "very talented" team that talent needs heart, focus and determination.

    I can almost guarantee you that CNS learned something in 2010 that produced what we saw in 2012 and hopefully what we'll see in 2013!

    Do you mean to tell me that CNS won't actually read this thread??? So much for sending him our ideas through TideFans!

    Even the fans are programmed, now. Saban's domination is complete.

    I think with the talent we have this coming year, and the favorable schedule, we have one of the best chances ever of anyone pulling off a three-peet. I think it will mostly come down to injuries and how much do the guys want it. Hopefully they can keep their heads on straight and focus.

    The loss to SC in 2010 is still a shock to me. I caught the reply on ESPN classics not too long ago. Garcia played the game of his life! No doubt it was the high water mark of his career.

    I think the chief adviser is Terry Saban.

    Saban recruits competitive types. And I think he has created a "culture of competition" within the program that keeps the players striving to be their best on a daily basis. Every day they are hungry to improve.

    No one's place is totally secure (there are no guaranteed starters) - this helps to eliminate complacency.

    This fall there will be a fresh wave of 4 and 5-star talent arriving in Tuscaloosa. These guys will pressure the upperclassmen and the cycle continues.

    Playing time will be the reward for the most hungry.
