Saban not ready to rate his team an "A" just yet

Posted: Updated:

Alabama coach Nick Saban isn't handing out straight A's on his midseason report card.

Saban's progress report isn't focused on what the top-ranked Crimson Tide is doing well. He said Monday he'd find it easier to answer the question, "Is there anything you don't need to improve on?"

The Tide has piled up big numbers and easy wins in its last four games even as potential national challengers like Stanford and Georgia have fallen.

Those defeats aren't hot topics around the football building going into Saturday's game against struggling Arkansas.

There's more talk about fumbles, dropped passes and the big play or two allowed by the defense in a 48-7 win over Kentucky.

Saban says he doesn't believe "we've played our best game by any stretch of the imagination."
