In an appearance on First Take, Saban revealed who he’s truly talking to during press conferences and why he gets annoyed by certain questions.Here’s what he said, via 247Sports:“Sometimes, I’m just trying to get a message across through the media to our team. When somebody asks me a question and gives me the opportunity to do that, I do it. Really, it’s to benefit our team. It’s not to make anybody look bad, but I want our team to get the message. I think you guys use me sometimes to create a little news, so I’m going to use you to create a little news to our team.”Saban is one of the best in the business at getting his point across to reporters, and therefore, his team.The Crimson Tide once again open the season as the favorite to win the national title.
