TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

Alabama head coach Nick Saban has expressed displeasure again at the media's tendency to link the team with championship predictions.

Saban got right to the point in his Wednesday press conference, telling those in attendance that they were reporting on the wrong subjects.

"I hate to be negative with anybody. When you people write stuff about people who were playing that doesn't give them the proper respect. That's not fair. Not fair to them. Not to their players who earn it. Not to our players, who need to respect them. When you make presumptions, it really upsets me. There are so many other good things to write about happening around here that people would be interested in. I'd love to see some of you do a little bit a research and figure it out. It would do my heart good," said Saban, getting heated on the issue.

The coach says he is tired of people focusing on the Tide and the national championship.

"We play the games for a reason. We make all these predictions about what's going to happen, it takes away from the game, I think. Just like everybody talks about who's going to win a national championship. Why do we play the games? We got a lot of great games coming up? Why do we even play those?" said Saban.

The Crimson Tide plays Western Kentucky on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.
