Opening Statement

“Well, I think the most important thing we keep trying to emphasize with the players, which they’ve done a pretty good job of, is responding the right way to try to improve and do things in a way that’s going to help them create value for themselves and help them create value for the team. If you don’t create any value for Alabama, you don’t create any value for yourself so everybody’s gotta focus on, finishing. I think, it’s a cue every day when you practice you get tired, you get lots of reps, that when you start to get that way, that’s a cue for you to finish.
