    JessN: Saban’s going nowhere, but we like for you to be prepared

    I probably should have included him on this list because a lot of people -- and I mean a lot -- consider him one of the best pure coaches of football not named Nick Saban. I got a chance to see him do a clinic-type discussion one time on wide receiver play. He was doing things that have gotten...

    ChrisD: Alabama 90, Miss. State 69: Bulldogs get sped up, swept out of Coleman

    Alabama 90, Miss. State 69: Bulldogs get sped up, swept out of Coleman by Chris DePew, TideFans Staff {feed:date} Alabama kept Mississippi State off-balance and out of rhythm all night, running the Bulldogs ragged and cracking the 90-point barrier for a fifth consecutive game in a 90-69 blowout...

    JessN: Michigan wrap-up: Second-half adjustments, Jones’ arm the keys to big win

    I'd go so far as to say that Davis should have been the nose all year. I didn't think Dale was very effective (or at least, non consistent) after about Week 6. Then he got hurt and we spent the rest of the regular season trying to make Mathis/Musika/Barmore work at nose. Barmore is best when...

    JessN: Playing the “what-if” game with Alabama’s 2020 roster

    They didn't whine hard enough, then ... they got LSU the week before us. Gonna be the pits for them in the future when they have a night game in Baton Rouge leading into their game with Bama the following weeks. It looks to me like the SEC as a whole was trying to drum up some more interest...

    JessN: Playing the “what-if” game with Alabama’s 2020 roster

    USC finished 8-5 with a 49-24 loss to Iowa in a bowl game, and then brought back the coach. The only thing in their favor is that they were a very young team this year, most starters being sophomores and then freshmen. Having said that, their defense made ours look like Bama of 1966 (talking...

    JessN: Playing the “what-if” game with Alabama’s 2020 roster

    If Alabama is an 8-4 team next year, Tua or not, it would have to be the result of even more injuries. I'm not sure Ruggs' decision has anything to do with Tua. Or, more appropriately, Tua is not going to leave or stay based on what Ruggs does. The early speculation was that Ruggs' younger...

    JessN: Playing the “what-if” game with Alabama’s 2020 roster

    Playing the “what-if” game with Alabama’s 2020 roster by Jess Nicholas | TideFans.com Editor-in-Chief By now, everyone has circled Jan. 6 on their calendars, because that’s when Alabama junior QB Tua Tagovailoa will publicly announce whether he’s staying for his senior season or going a year...

    JessN: Michigan wrap-up: Second-half adjustments, Jones’ arm the keys to big win

    Lots of rumor that Perine pulled a hamstring either late in bowl prep or in warm-ups. I haven't heard anything suggesting it's disciplinary yet. I watched a bit of the Wisconsin-Oregon game and Wisconsin was in a 4-4 look on some downs. I never thought I'd see that defense again outside of a...

    Question: Best JUCO team vs worst D-1 FBS team?

    If you saw any of Jackie Sherrill's later MSU teams, you saw JUCO football. (g) I think they signed like 14 of them one year. I think it was the only way they could be assured they were getting guys that would qualify for a while.

    JessN: Michigan preview: Bama’s ranks are too thinned to take Wolverines lightly

    Relevant in the way it would be for any former SEC starting quarterback transferring out of the conference to a new locale: He is familiar with the speed of SEC defenses, whether he was successful against them or not. It could aid in his preparation.

    JessN: Auburn wrap-up: A loss of systemic proportions

    First of all, I have a much different take on Saban and his desire for championships. Saban is very concerned about his personal legacy in college football. There's going to be a day sometime after he retires that I'll get in deeper on this but he knows he's judged against Bryant (not just in...

    JessN: Auburn wrap-up: A loss of systemic proportions

    That was basically the synopsis of my post-Auburn column 2013 and I got fried for it all over the internet. It wasn't really popular here to begin with, but someone linked it to a Facebook group and I had a couple of mouth-frothers in my business for a couple of months afterward. But it was the...

    JessN: Auburn wrap-up: A loss of systemic proportions

    I'm seeing us projected to the Citrus versus Minnesota and honestly I like that matchup a lot better. I think Alabama would cream Minnesota with about half the starters out, so long as they take the game seriously and we don't end up with "Utah Part II: Taking Bourbon Street to Orlando." The...
