WATCH: Nick Saban took Alabama players tubing last week

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

Alabama coach Nick Saban knows that the Crimson Tide need to be battle-tested to endure the grind that is the pursuit of an SEC championship. As any lifelong tuber knows, a great way to test strength and willpower is holding on to an inner tube behind a speeding boat.

Defensive lineman Anthony Orr was one of several Alabama players to post pictures on Instagram from what appears to be a team lake trip last week -- per FTW and others, the team was at Lake Burton in Georgia.

In the video below, Saban keeps a close eye on the tubing technique as he drives the boat.
