Nick Saban has reached that point in his career where winning is more relief than joy, but despite living with the greatest expectations in college football, Alabama will be his last coaching stop. When he does retire, he believes Kirby Smart could take over as head coach and not miss a beat. Says who? A source...
Young man is looking good....Bama's QB is gonna be inn god hands, for the foreseeable future!
Alabama quarterback commitment Cooper Bateman finished a tough season in which his Cottonwood High team finished 3-8. He threw for 2,384 yards with 15 touchdowns in 11 games for the Salt Lake City school, which had its fourth head coach in four years. He also rushed for 12 touchdowns.

I saw that game, and usually don't feel sorry for such poor coaching and play. However these young men. are not just student athletes, they also bear the burden of being cadets at our Nation's Army and Naval Academies, and after finishing, becoming officers. An awesome responsibility. That said, I sure felt sorry for the army QB,a senior..10 years of losing.
They call it "silly season" for a reason. The frenzy that is college football's coaching carousel never lacks for bizarre and amusing twists and turns this time of the year, heightened by a slew of unfounded rumors and misinformation. Just consider the dominos that occurred over a roughly 72-hour period from Wednesday to Saturday. First, Colorado had apparently hired Cincinnati's Butch Jones. So said Woody Paige. But the deal was never done, and it's no coincidence that Jones began backtracking around the same time Louisville's Charlie Strong turned down Tennessee. Next thing you know, Jones, who also interviewed with Purdue last week, is the Vols' new coach.
