If only that was true. Doing the same thing never guarantees past results. Ask your investment advisor.
Nick Saban knows a thing or two about motivation. He’s already won four national titles as a head coach and he came devilishly close to playing for another this season.
The Crimson Tide’s only loss in 2012 was to Texas A&M. For that reason, Saban placed plenty of A&M logos around Bama’s football facilities last offseason. Alabama then went into College Station and won this past year.
So following a last-second loss to Auburn (literally) and a beatdown in the Sugar Bowl by Oklahoma, Saban has got his go-to motivational trick for the 2014 offseason. According to CoachingSearch.com, this poster hangs above every player’s locker:
Saban said after the Sugar Bowl that his team lost its focus following its emotional 38-17 win over rival LSU in early-November. Expect “focus” to be a focus for the Alabama football team this spring and summer. That and those two losses to Auburn and Oklahoma.
