"You guys got no sense of urgency!" Saban bellowed, loud enough to be heard throughout the busy practice field. "You play like sticks!" Linebacker Dont'a Hightower called it "loafing." "I want people to care," McElroy said. "The thing that bothers me more than anything -- not necessarily from a talent standpoint -- is just 'How much do you care about the team? What are you willing to give to allow the team to be successful?' I think that's something we all need to take a look in the mirror, offense, defense, special teams, everybody. ... No one is really giving as much effort as they probably could be."

Gentry Estes: Veterans voice opinions to get Tide rolling again in preseason F-bomb. Not the kind of quotes you want to be reading less than three weeks before the season opener. Raw talent and quality depth notwithstanding, it seems like the team is not where it needs to be mentally. If so, all I can say is that this team better quickly take Gunnery Sergeant Hartman's advice to Private Joker, or it's going to be a disappointing year for everyone involved.
