"When former players come back to me, it hurts my heart...that anybody that's ever played here would think that anybody on this team is not playing to that culture and to that standard.

That really breaks my heart because I'm responsible for that," Saban said, via Alabama reporter Charlie Potter.

Saban takes full responsibility for the Tide's struggles this season even though the team is two plays away from being undefeated.

Alabama won't be competing for a national title this year, but Saban doesn't want that to take away from what the current team has accomplished.
