08:22 AM ET 04.12 | As far as Nick Saban is concerned, Alabama gymnasts can forget about a three-peat -- at least in name, as the team has a shot at winning a third consecutive national title next week. The message he delivered Thursday, [coach Sarah Patterson] said, was similar to what he said throughout his own season as Alabama pursued its second consecutive BCS National Championship. "He has a great perspective on the expectations of other people about going for a three-peat," Patterson said. "He goes, 'You're not going for any peat. You're going and doing what you need to do.' Each team is different and you have to create your own chemistry. You can't place that additional burden on yourself because it never works."

Sarah Patterson was definitely swooning over him. He's like a rock star to women. Just like the Tuohy woman was so into him in the movie about Michael Oher. It's crazy, because he's middle-aged and not real tall.

I totally understand your predicament. You did well, all things considered.

He's just like Yoda and Henry Kissinger - women can just feel the power.
