As it it is with Alabama, you don’t get to celebrate wins for very long before the conversation shifts to the bigger picture. Of course anyone connected to Alabama football will be quick to tell you the Tide aren’t playing for Iron Bowl or SEC Championship wins after all, they are playing for national titles. So it shouldn’t come as a shock to Saban and his players to be confronted with questions about the playoff and the national championship, but what has come as a shock to the Tide are is all of the talk about Alabama’s ability to be able to lose and still make the playoff.

Alabama hates it.

Nick Saban and the Tide have zero intention of relaxing and settling for taking a loss and sneaking into the playoff. Florida should expect to get a motivated, hungry team in the SEC Championship game Saturday.
