Nick Saban wasn't in an awesome mood at his press conference following Alabama's fall camp practice today. (To be fair, he never seems to be in an awesome mood at his press conferences.)

The Crimson Tide head coach had to answer questions about Maurice Smith, the player Alabama is denying a transfer to Georgia, and Alphonse Taylor, the offensive lineman potentially being suspended for a DUI.

Saban answered most of the questions, saying Alabama supports the SEC's transfer rule and that Taylor has gone through an "intense" program following his arrest.

He did get a little upset when asked a hypothetical question about Smith, though.

As Saban walked out of the press conference, he apparently sent a message to the media. "Get your ass in gear."

Saban is always motivating, apparently.
