Nick Saban draws a crowd on day 3 of SEC Media Days

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) - No Twitter, no fancy shoes, but Nick Saban still draws the biggest crowd at SEC Media Days.

"This sort of makes you feel like the world is really interested in what you're doing. It's going to be a real challenging year," Saban said.

The challenge begins with finding a quarterback to replace Blake Sims.

It's a five-man battle, with Jacob Coker and David Cornwell the likely front-runners.

Last season, Bama's offense set records, but Saban says that productivity came at a cost.

"Passing and total offense points I'm talking about records all time but yet there was something that we lost in doing that. Before we would line up and physically dominate the line of scrimmage and the other team knew what we were going to do and that was no secret but they really couldn't stop us so even though we had much more balance and diversity I think we lost a little bit of that and I think its important we sort of gain that back so we are a physical relentless team that nobody wants to play," Saban said.
