Saban Talks LSU, Auburn

You don’t often hear Nick Saban talk about teams that lie more than a week ahead on Alabama’s schedule.  But yesterday — in discussing the Tide’s next opponent, LSU — he spoke a bit about the team that’s on pace to roll into the Iron Bowl undefeated at the end of the month.

Asked if his team could take anything away from Auburn’s impressive rushing performance against LSU’s defense, Saban said:

“It is a unique style that they have because (of Cameron Newton’s) runs and what they can do with the outstanding player that they have at that position.  That’s not conventional.  A couple of big plays really contributed to those numbers in terms of what they gave up.  From our standpoint, we discount it because that’s not really our style.

“We don’t have that kind of quarterback.  We don’t have that kind of offense.”

So Saban can’t simply copy what Auburn did against LSU two weeks ago.  And the day after Thanksgiving, he’ll have to prevent Auburn from doing unto him what it did unto LSU.
