Quotes from the news wire:
(Bennett and I) had a couple of conversations in passing. He reached out a couple times just to see if he wanted to come back, wanted to continue to get better. There wasn’t a lot there, wasn’t a lot of questions or anything… We showed a lot of confidence in Stetson — if you didn’t notice — and he answered that with the way he played.
They’ve got really good skill players on the outside, they know how to use those skill players, they put them in different positions, change things up. Brian Robinson, seems like he’s been there for 100 years and he is physical, runs with purpose, intent, a traditional Alabama back.

That’s the ultimate challenge. When you look across the board at the efficiency with which Bryce Young has played with, he's got good weapons around him, he’s got a really good team around him, but make no mistake about it, he is elite at what he does. To have the number of touchdown passes, the interception ratio, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen really anything like it.
Everyone’s kind of had it circled and seen it out there, we’ve really tried to work hard on getting better. That’s been the emphasis — what can we improve on? The last two weeks, we’ve been trying to be ascending. We’ve tried to get some guys back healthy. And that’s going to be the focus this week — nobody trying to do more than they should.
The Clemson game was the first game of the year, and I thought we were a little tired. We had to play the whole time, but we’ve worked really hard on Mondays and Tuesdays, running guys, trying to make sure we’re keeping our stamina up. We hold each other accountable. They’re up for the task. They’ve answered the bell, and they’ve done the right things.
