Alabama looked like the best team in college football - by far - once again this afternoon, as the Crimson Tide blew out a top 25 opponent in Texas A&M at home.

It's early, but this Nick Saban team is looking like one of his best ever. The Crimson Tide are loaded at basically every position and have, arguably, the best quarterback in the country in Tua Tagovailoa.

Saban knows this, too. The signs are starting to emerge.

Take, for example, what Saban asked of the media after today's game. He wants reporters to start writing bad things about his football team so he can show them to his players throughout the week.

"Saban stops before leaving, tells reporters, "I would appreciate it if you looked at the things we didn’t so well.” He wants to show it to players this week. So basically he’s asking for bad press," ESPN's Alex Scarborough tweeted.

That is the sign of a head coach who knows how great his team is, not wanting them to get overconfident (like it would matter).

Alabama is set to host Louisiana Lafayette in Tuscaloosa, Ala. next weekend.
