HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban wants to make sure
everyone has their calendar right.
Saban said at SEC media days on Wednesday that he wants the
focus to be on 2010, not last season's national championship run.
He says the Crimson Tide is not into defending titles or
focusing on a second straight national championship.
Alabama is replacing 10 defensive starters from the championship
game against Texas, but has most of its star offensive players
That includes Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram. Saban says this
could be the most important of his four fall camps at Alabama.
He also says that even if all the ingredients were returning it
wouldn't mean the team would have the same chemistry.
Alabama opens practice on Aug. 5.
