Alabama Aims For Businesslike Treatment Of Rematch

Tools

By Alabama News Network

 Alabama coach Nick Saban wants a businesslike approach to the rematch with No. 6 Texas A&M.
   
Star receiver Amari Cooper insists Saturday's game isn't about revenge at all for the top-ranked Crimson Tide. Johnny Manziel and the Aggies were the only team to beat Bama during last season's national title run.
   
Cooper says it's two different teams and "if you lose a fight with someone, you don't get revenge from fighting someone else."
   
Saban says emotions can work against a team in games. Besides, he says trash talk "is never a part of our game."
   
His approach has worked well so far in grudge matches.
   
His Alabama and LSU teams are 15-2 in avenging losses the following season or later in the same season.
