"Our mantra now for our guys that we have as a leadership group is to never be satisfied," said Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, last season's runner up for the Heisman Trophy. "Early in the season, we'd been beating teams by a lot. Of course you're going to get satisfied, because you feel invincible as a team. But never being satisfied is the way to go for us. We've just got to keep going until we get what we want."
"It's good to see coach Sark come back," Tagovailoa said. "I have built a relationship with him since I was being recruited my sophomore year of high school. I think if we had any coach come in, I still think we'd have to all be comfortable with what he has to bring to the table. It's just a different way of learning."
