    Saban press conference notes

    For those that didn't get a chance to see it here are a few things I picked up:

    RE: RW

    RW apologized to the team.

    Saban didn't talk him into returning. It was RW idea. All Saban asked was what have you learned and what can we do to help.

    RW weiged in at 213. Saban wants him in the low 220s.

    Saban sees what made RW successful in the past, but he is a long way away from being ready now. Also mentioned they have plenty of time.

    RW will have to work his way up.

    No negative reactions from the players he spoke to, but several were concerned about RW's commitment level.

    RE: QBs

    No plans to name a starter any time soon.

    He assumes he'll need both guys at some point in the season.

    RE: Olindo Mare

    Thought 82% (ranked 14th) was respectable especially considering injuries.

    Said he has looked accurate with good range in camp.

    Sees him as a positive for the team.

    RE: Seau

    Pulled calf muscle.

    That's what I remember. I missed the RW portion (work pulled me away). Those who watched it feel free to add any other tidbits you remember.

    I heard that Saban said after the press conference after today he'll no longer field any questions about Ricky Williams. I assume me means "non-football" related questions...but sounds good to me.

    The sooner he deals with the media like the petulent children they are by ignoring them, the sooner they'll start caring about what they should care about...winning football games.

    I heard no mention of Pape. During the press conference he Saban said that he wouldn't answer questions about RW's past. He would only answer questions about from events from now moving forward.

    Also when asked about the possibility of trading RW Saban said tht he can't enter into speculation. (Basically he never answered it).
