Saban: Alabama must remember the feeling of losing to Texas A&M
"Everybody needs to remember how they feel and not forget it," Saban said, according to Mike Rodak of AL.com "When I talk about having respect for winning, that's what I mean. You want to avoid the feeling you have when you lose."
The Crimson Tide had won 100 consecutive games against unranked teams before their shocking loss to the Aggies.
"Hopefully, we'll learn a lot from this," Saban said. "We still can accomplish everything we want to accomplish ... we got to do things better than we did tonight.
"We got to play better, we got to be more consistent, we got to finish drives, we got to get more turnovers on defense, we need to get more stops on defense. There are a lot of things we need to fix."
Alabama committed two turnovers and allowed a touchdown on a 96-yard kickoff return. Texas A&M's unanswered 10-point run in the fourth quarter was capped off by a 28-yard game-winning field goal as time expired.
Saban ultimately pointed all fingers at himself for the loss.
"I'm responsible for all of it. We got to do a better job with our coaches. We got to do a better job with our players so we can convert the situations.”
