TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban says the latest Southeastern Conference weekend shows how little predictions mean in college football.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide, which plays at Missouri Saturday, returns from an open date to a different SEC landscape - except at the top. Saban said Monday Florida's win over LSU and South Carolina beating Georgia shows the game's parity.
He says it demonstrates how pundits ``are badly mistaken when you make teams that are like so much better than everybody else.''
Some Alabama players remember being in a similar situation two years ago. That's when the Tide won its first five games before losing at South Carolina.
Safety Robert Lester says veterans ``don't want our younger guys to go through that and we definitely don't want to go through it again.''
