From the "How Do You Like Me Now?" comes Alabama head coach Nick Saban having his way with the media for the criticism he got from some its quarters for hiring Lane Kiffin as Crimson Tide offensive coordinator.

 "I mean, if I did what you all thought when I hired the guy, he wouldn't even be here," Saban said. 
"Maybe that was the assumption because nobody thought it was a good hire that all of a sudden something bad. I don't know. I thought it was a good hire. Nobody else did. Now, I got beat up like a drum for doing it and now all of a sudden it's great.

"You guys don't have any consequences for what you say and do. Our stuff ends up out there on the field on Saturday and if it ain't done right there's consequences in front of a whole bunch of people, however many people watched the game. How many people watched the last game? What was the rating, like 5.1? How many is that? And however many was in the stadium. It's a different kind of scorecard than you all have got to live with."

Alabama are 4-0 under the Saban-Kiffin tandem.
