    ESPNW: Menu is Alabama nutritionist's playbook

    I searched, but didn't find this article posted. I read something similar last year, but it's still a good read about the detail and process of CNS.

    There are very few leaves he leaves unturned. I have Cochran's 4th Quarter book and it is very detailed also.

    I wonder what she thought of Chance Warmack's two monster-burger performance at Mugshots the other night.

    Hush! What she doesn't know won't hurt him. Besides, how else is he supposed to keep The Belly?

    It is. They mentioned the women's gymnastics and softball team in the story.

    Interesting behind-the-scenes details in there, and once again points to how detail oriented Coach Saban is.
    I noted the part about the smoothie bar for the players...I'm a huge fan of smoothies and have one every day as it's a great way to get a huge dose of fruits and veggies. I'm sure ours isn't the only team that does this kind of thing but still neat that athletes have these types of things available to them to point them towards developing healthy eating habits.

    Thanks for posting.

    Re: ESPNW: Menu is Alabama nutritionist's playbook

    I've read accounts of smoothie bars in other teams' weight rooms, but the attention to nutrition and diet details at Bama is second to none. I read an account of one recruit's parents who were uber-impressed on an official visit that Bragg was already aware that their son had an allergy to peanuts. I assume it wasn't a HIPAA violation.

    Hand (Da'Shawn), the consensus choice by the major recruiting services as the nation's No. 1 defensive lineman, told 247Sports that each school in his top five has its own unique appeal to him.

    "All have their little pieces," Hand said. "At Auburn, I went to a construction site. At South Carolina, it was the linemen, at Michigan it was the sports marketing and at Alabama, it was Alabama. It's Alabama."

    Funny

    But how does Bragg reconcile Saban's well-documented breakfast habit of dining on Little Debbie snack cakes?

    "He is entitled to one vice," Bragg said. "He is incredibly disciplined with overall nutrition and eats balanced, heart-healthy meals. And it could be worse. At least Little Debbies has oats."
