Nick Saban takes on critics who think Alabama has more running backs than it needs.

Alabama head football coach Nick Saban knows what you're thinking. He knows you think Alabama signed too many running backs on National Signing Day. He knows you think T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan are more than enough for the Crimson Tide. Worse, he knows why you think Alabama doesn't need more RB's than just Yeldon and Kenyan.

“To me, to have really good depth at running back, you need five really good players. Three guys usually play a lot,” Saban said. 

“So, I know in your little fantasy football world...”

It was at that point of the answer when Saban’s intensity peaked. He trailed off, but ultimately clarified the expectations of the Crimson Tide’s four newest running backs.

“Several of these guys we recruited,” he said, “are going to have lots of opportunity to contribute this year.”

That's right, haters. Saban knows your criticism is all about you and your fantasy football team. Well here's some news for you all - Saban plays real football, and he plays for something more than that paltry little fantasy football league trophy you covet. You can go ponder how insignificant your life really is now.
