PHOTO: Alabama's weight room has Texas A&M on the brain
The Crimson Tide's weight room has a replay of the 2012 loss to Texas A&M loss on its TVs and Aggie logos on its weight stations.
Nick Saban has already admitted this offseason (in May!) that preparation for Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M has been an "ongoing process," which was already quite a statement from a coach whose discussion of future challenges rarely venture beyond simply waking up the following morning.
But if this photo via Taylor Travis of the Alabama weight room is any indication, the Crimson Tide's loss to the Aggies in 2012 has stuck in the craw of Saban and his team like few others. Travis indicates that "they have the A&M game playing on every TV as well as the A&M logo on the weight stations."
Look closely and, sure enough, there's a game on the TVs and Aggie towels hanging from the weights:
Suffice it to say that if the photo is legitimate, and A&M defeats Alabama for the second year in a row in their Sept. 14 showdown at College Station (3:30 ET, CBS), the Aggies aren't going to do it with the element of surprise. Hope you're ready, Mr. Manziel.
