USA Today columnist Dan Wolken has a suggestion for Alabama coach Nick Saban, who used part of his time at SEC Media Days on Wednesday to theorize about what went so wrong for the Crimson Tide at the end of last season: Admit you were beaten and move on.

Day 3 of SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala., continues into the afternoon today. Get live updates from Advocate sportswriters Scott Rabalais, Ross Dellenger and Les East.
