Most of that stuff comes from the mental intensity that you have going into the game, but I was really pleased with the way the team responded at halftime.

But what ate and still eats at Saban is the way his Alabama team lost that game.
In many ways, it was a microcosm of the Crimson Tide’s entire season.
