   TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Embracing the championship expectations
and a return to college football, Nick Saban was introduced as
Alabama's coach on Thursday a day after getting a festive
introduction to Crimson Tide fans.
   "I know there's tremendous expectations here," Saban said at a
news conference. "I can tell you that however you feel about it, I
have even higher expectations for what we want to accomplish. I
want to win every game we play."
   Hundreds of screaming Alabama fans greeted him at the airport a
day earlier, chanting "Roll Tide" as his plane landed. He got
hugs, handshakes and back pats -- and, reportedly, an eight-year
deal worth at least $30 million, the most lucrative in college
   He said he knew "that my heart was to go back to college," but
that he felt like he left the Miami Dolphins' franchise in better
shape than he found it two years ago despite a 15-17 record.
