In the 2021 season, Alabama suffered a surprise loss to Georgia in the national championship game.
Denied him a seventh title under Nick Saban.
Moving into the 2022 season, Alabama has found a unique way to keep players motivated.
Per Crimson Tide insider Mike Rodak, Alabama offensive lineman Emil Acior said the team has a tool to remind them of last year's title failure in the team cafeteria.
Ekior revealed that the team has a "participation trophy" for the national championship game adorning the cafeteria.
He said that the trophy gives the team a little bit of inspiration every day.
"It's a trophy that says '2022 Indianapolis Runners-Up Trophy' and below that it just says 'Partnership Trophy. Like,'
Are you happy with it?' So it's a little motivation to watch that every day and it reminds you to change the outcome of the season..."
Alabama enters the 2022 season as one of the top contenders for the national title and has been one of the betting favorites since the end of last season.
The Crimson Tide has the services of current Heisman Trophy winner, quarterback Bryce Young.
They also have a more elite recruiting class involved to replace the many stars they lost.
There is no reason to believe that Alabama would not be in a position to avenge the disappointment of last year's national title.
