Saban uses Michigan to motivate Tide suffering from ‘poor mes’

Energy levels weren’t up to Nick Saban’s standards at Monday’s spring practice in Tuscaloosa.

He diagnosed the Crimson Tide with a case of the “poor-mes.” The treatment called for a reminder of what was at stake.

“I told the players after practice I’ll call Michigan and ask if they take days off when they get tired,” Saban said referring to Alabama’s season-opening opponent. “If their coach will do it, then I’ll do it.”

Rising junior receiver Kenny Bell understands why Saban wasn’t pleased.

“We just didn’t have enough individuals who wanted to come out there and compete,” he said.
