Saban wants to look ahead; UA players still hoping

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Nick Saban has laid down the law: No more LSU talk.

No. 4 Alabama's coach opened his Monday news conference by saying he'd have "one statement about the last game and then we're moving on." Saban says the Crimson Tide's attention is now on Saturday night's visit to Mississippi State, not on that overtime loss or on hopes for a rematch with the top-ranked Tigers in the national title game.

Bama players can't help but hope for another shot at LSU.

Tailback Trent Richardson says compared the physical LSU game to two 18-wheelers colliding. As for Round 2, he says, "Who wouldn't want to see a rematch?"

Left tackle Barrett Jones, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick and tight end Brad Smelley are out for Monday's practice with injuries.
