Before the Tide left town, Nick Saban outlined his goal for the team, during a press conference on the first day of signing.

“Excellence is not free,” Saban said. “You have to pay the price up front, and there is a price to pay for that. Working on fundamentals, finishing the play, pushing yourself, focusing on blocking, tackling and ball care. There are a lot of things that we need to pay attention to detail to try to get our momentum back as a team and our confidence back so that everyone is playing together and we have a good understanding of what we need to do to have a chance to play winner. football when the match arrives.

The Rose Bowl, which serves as this year’s College Football Playoff semifinal, is scheduled for Monday at 4 p.m. CT. The Sugar Bowl, between Washington and Texas, is the other.
