    SIAP - Video of Saban Speaking at AFCA Conference

    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"
    -- Coach Bryant

    "We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."
    -- Nick Saban day after beating Clemson

    He's absolutely right. Circumstances in the society have changed since Saban's playing days. A lot of these young men need someone to value them as an individual so they can realize their potential.

    Just so true. The whole speech is probably on YouTube

    Nick Saban on differences in teams.
    I don’t think our coaches spent enough time building relationships with the people on the team. its the Biggest difference in our team.

    Probably a big reason for so many coaching changes.

    Wow...a lot to digest here...

    First...stressing the importance of individual relationships...knocks it out of the park with me!!! And I love that he tied it into the church environment, because that’s where I can connect the dots on a personal level.

    Second...the correlation between broken families and father figures (or even simply role models) and the respect requested/given in these coach/player relationships, is a dynamic that lesser men won’t embrace...or at most, will simply give lip-service to.

    Third...coaches on the staff who wouldn’t take the time (or see the value) to develop personal relationships with our players, is the dynamic that we’ve all been striving to find...to justify and explain the coaching turnover that we’re watching unfold right now.

    Fourth...Coach’s sweater against that backdrop made me dizzy...and almost caused me to have a seizure 🤔😲🤭

    He could really package up this general message and give it to the city and county school systems and it would serve that audience just as well.

    As an eighth grade teacher, I agree with this 100%.

    It said May, 2018. Regardless, it still applies.

    Rollbamaroll.com reported this video was being mentioned in many places as talking about the 2018 team but they said it was from 2014 as CrimsonForce points out.

    Right, but it wasn't a reference to coaching changes this year. The reasons may be similar but it's a little misleading to say that video is why coaching changes were made after the 2018 season when the video is from 2014..
