ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban wants to make sure the defending national champions take nothing for granted.
Saban said Tuesday during an Athens (Tenn.) Area Chamber of Commerce benefit dinner at Tennessee Wesleyan College that he showed his team a tape of James ``Buster'' Douglas' knockout of Mike Tyson as a warning to avoid complacency.
Saban's visit to a town less than 60 miles south of Tennessee's campus produced more than 100 complaints over the past several months, according to Chamber of Commerce president Rob Preston. After all the tumult preceding his appearance, Saban received a hero's welcome in a setting that resembled a booster event.
The Alabama coach got a standing ovation from 1,500 fans who paid $50 for tickets and lined up for hours amid sweltering conditions to see him.
