Alabama coach Nick Saban joined the show to talk about winning the national title.

Saban explained why he was so intense up until the end of the game. “I’m one of those guys, I coach the game until the game’s over regardless who’s playing,” Saban said.

Saban weighed in on Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron. He said that he didn’t need to throw that much this season, but that could change next season. He said they were built to run with a great offensive line and great running backs this year.

“Guys like A.J., when they come back next year, that’s when they get recognized for their accomplishments,” Saban said.

Saban told Dan that he has to focus on recruiting now. He can’t go to the lake house and relax. When he’s done recruiting, he’s back into 1970s and ’80s rock.
