Alabama using Texas A&M as motivation in the weight room


Alabama accomplished its goal of winning another national championship last season, but Texas A&M prevented the Crimson Tide from enjoying an undefeated season. Johnny Manziel and company won a 29-24 thriller over Alabama in Tuscaloosa last November, and Nick Saban is making sure his team does not forget about the loss heading into the 2013 season.

As first pointed out, Alabama recently had its loss to Texas A&M playing on every TV in the weight room and the Aggies’ logo hanging from every weight station. If someone told you before last season that Texas A&M would become Alabama’s motivation in the school’s first season as a member of the SEC, you probably would have laughed in their face.

The motivation tactic is another example of what a perfectionist Saban is. Some would say winning a BCS National Championship is all that matters, but clearly Saban wants his team to understand there was room for improvement. They could have been better, and he expects them to be this season.
