Crimson Tide remains confident, but hungry

HOOVER, Ala. -

Coming to SEC Media Days as defending champions is a familiar feeling for Alabama.

"When you sign up to go to Alabama, that is a high expectation each year," said Linebacker C.J. Mosley. "We have got to make sure everybody buys into the system and make sure we hold ourselves accountable to Alabama standards so we can put ourselves in that situation every year."

Nick Saban is the architect behind the most efficient system in college football. He says it starts with making a connection with his team.

" I really do care about our players," Saban said. "I feel like it is important for your players to know that you care before they care that you know."

And when it comes to trust from Coach Saban, you don't have to look much further than his veteran quarterback A.J. McCarron

"Trust is everything with Coach Saban," McCarron said. "I feel like he trusts us leaders and expects us to have everything going the way it is supposed to be going."

The ten players around McCarron are highlighted by stud receiver Amari Cooper.

"We have very good skill guys at receiver that will complement the quarterback," Saban said. "We are obviously rebuilding the offensive line which we are pleased with the progress. But, it is a concern."

Everyone agrees Alabama is loaded with talent, but, that talent lacks experience.

"We'll be fine. All I can say is just sit back and watch us. Hopefully we will be fun and exciting this year," McCarron said.

And for Alabama fans, being excited means getting another BCS national title.
