Nick Saban talks Mississippi State in Wednesday’s press conference

Cedric Mason

Nick Saban discussed the Tide’s matchup with Mississippi State, provided injury updates, and discussed offensive coordinator, Mike Locksley during Wednesday’s press conference. Here are some of the things he said.

– “Practice was a little better today. We have a lot of respect for Mississippi State. We had some really tough games against them in the past and they are playing pretty well right now and I think our team need to focus on what we need to do to get better and I think a simple question you can ask yourself is am I better than I was on yesterday. Seems like it been a while since we played at home.”

Injury update on Jerry Jeudy

-“He was out there. He is fine. He got a little tweak and went in, but he’s fine. No problem”

-“I think their (Mississippi State) offensive scheme is difficult to defend. When you have a quarterback that runs the ball for more yards than the two running backs put together and both running backs are pretty good that tells how good of a runner he is. You are kind of defending a wild cat offense.”

Update on Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith

-They did a little more. They are doing a little bit more every day. We don’t want to push the envelop and make them worse. We just want to make them a little better and stronger everyday and decided what their role can be in the game.”

Talks on Mike Locksley

“Mike has experience. He has been a coordinator. He has been our program for a couple of years and coached on the staff a year ago. I think he knows our system and did a good job at adding some of the things that he likes and has done well. We have a really good offensive staff and he has done a wonderful job of working with all those guys and getting them together. I think he has done a good job with the players that we have and I hope we continue to improve and I think the players respond well to him and he does a really a good job.”
