Everything Nick Saban said following Wednesday's practice




 

Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide football team wrapped up its twelfth practice of fall camp on Wednesday and as is customary, the head coach took a few moments afterward to speak to the media.

Tide fans continue to get a larger sample size of what to expect from this year's team with the season kicking off in just a little over two weeks against Utah State inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Coach Saban continues to be pleased with the progression of the 2022 squad but also sees plenty of areas in which this team can improve.

Here is everything the seven-time national championship head coach had to say on Wednesday evening.
