In sports, two primary challenges face any program, building a championship program and maintaining a championship program.

For Alabama football under Nick Saban, maintaining a championship program has its challenges with competitors such as Clemson, Georgia, Auburn and LSU having the Crimson Tide on their radar and looking to knock them off the top of the mountain at every opportunity.

In recent comments to ProFootballTalk, former Alabama running back described how the team's mental fatigue contributed to the Crimson Tide's 44-16 defeat to the Clemson Tigers.

During a special Friday appearance on The Blitz, DC from Golden Shores Productions looked at the former Alabama running back's comments and how the grind of the season affected the team from a mental standpoint.

In the video above, the Alabama football analyst takes a look at how the challenge of reaching perfection takes a mental toll on the team and how Josh Jacobs made valid points in his assessment of the Clemson game.

During his conversation with Martin Houston, DC also examines Nick Saban's new assistants and how Pete Golding could fare as Alabama's defensive coordinator.
