Alabama head coach Kristy Curry isn't taking this poll too seriously and expressed this at SEC media days.

"I don't really ever pay attention to anything in the preseason. I appreciate you guys, but at the end of the day we control our energy and effort," said Curry. "Let's see where we finish and we can see if we think that's real."

Curry also noted that she is the one that sees her team on a daily basis.

"I'm in practice everyday, I'm around this team everyday, and I understand what we've done in the recruiting process. So, respect, but certainly don't take that seriously," said Curry. "What we do at the end of the year and how we finish is what's going to matter most, not what anybody else thinks."

Curry's team returns most of its roster from last year and adds many new pieces from the transfer portal along with the reigning Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year.

Alabama starts the season on Nov. 7, as the Crimson Tide hosts the Alabama A&M Bulldogs in Coleman Coliseum.
