Everybody Needs To Hear This Speech From Nick Saban About Toughness [VIDEO]

David Hookstead | Reporter

Alabama football coach Nick Saban had a speech for the ages about toughness.

Now, everybody knows Saban is one of the greatest football coaches to ever pick up a clipboard. The man just wins at everything he does. We now have some insight into how he views what it means to be tough, and it’s awesome. (RELATEDSEC FANS DON’T LIKE TO USE FACTS WHEN DISCUSSING COLLEGE FOOTBALL)

“So, if you really think about toughness and mental toughness, what does it take to break you? I don’t care what circumstance you’re faced with. What does it take to break your focus because you get frustrated about what happened on the last play? What does it take to make you give in because it’s hot outside? … Having toughness — what breaks you — is what helps you be able to maintain the discipline that you need to have to do what you need to do, when you’re supposed to do it, the way it’s supposed to get done,” Saban told the Crimson Tide team during a recent “Training Days” episode.

See, this is why Saban is such an impressive winner. Not only does he know more about Xs and Os than just about anybody on the planet, but he is an excellent communicator. I am ready to run through a wall right now, and I don’t even like Alabama football.

This is just another great example of what sets Saban apart from everybody else. We’re only a few days away from college football, and I can’t wait to see what he does with the Tide this season. It should be entertaining as hell to follow.
