SEC Media Days, day 3: Alabama takes the stage

Saban addresses the media at this year's event.

HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — The University of Alabama arrived in style at the Hyatt Regency-The Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Ala. for SEC Media Days, and set out to put some of their biggest rumors to bed.

Coach Nick Saban addressed many team elements in his 16th presser given at a SEC Media Days event and his 11th at UA. The team lost several defensive starters to the NFL draft this year, and is at its youngest since 2012, according to Saban.

CBS42’s Simone Eli followed the press conference in her tweets live, which can be read below.

After Saban’s press conference, the player representatives came out to field questions from the media.

As the players answered the media’s questions, Saban took more questions in a more intimate setting and put this year’s rumors of a quarterback controversy to bed thanks to a question from CBS42’s Chris Breece. You can see his full answer at the top of this article.
