Alabama's football program is so successful, Nick Saban's looking for new, unconventional ways to keep players in line.

The No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide rolled over No. 22 Texas A&M 45-23 on Saturday. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa sparkled with 387 passing yards and five total touchdowns.

Alabama has yet to be challenged this season, and that's a problem for Saban.

"I would appreciate it if you would sort of look at some of the things we didn't do so well, all right, and write about that so I can show it to the players and say, 'look here, man. Here's something you can do better,'" Saban said at his postgame press conference, according to ESPN's Alex Scarborough.

A notorious stickler, Saban often focuses on his team's errors even after big wins. But it appears he's run out of mistakes to nitpick.

"We have a good team, but our team needs to do a lot of things to improve, all right?" he said.

"If what our team has accomplished to this point makes them in any way not take into account the kind of teams that we have to play in the future, and they underestimate what we need to do to improve so that we can become a better team and don't just take things for granted, all right, that we're going to show up because we have an Alabama uniform on and win the game, it's not going to happen that way, and it's going to be everyone's choice in the organization."

Next up for Alabama is Louisiana-Lafayette next week and Arkansas the following Saturday. The only ranked opponents left on their schedule are LSU, Mississippi State, and Auburn.
