I think most of us have been there: the guy that walks into the bar thinking he’s the hot stuff in the place, then gets turned down by half of the girls in the building?
Well, even if I thought I was hot stuff before, I definitely don’t now. I was hoping to get just a quick comment from coach on the similarities between Alabama linebacker Adrian Hubbard and Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones.
Well, I’ll let you see the results. I’ll have to come back strong on Wednesday.
After his opening statement (which you can see with much more by clicking here), Alabama head coach Nick Saban was asked if he would comment on The Denver Post’s report that Alabama and Colorado State had agreed to a deal to play each other in 2013 and 2015.
Coach Saban shut the question down. Video evidence below:
The Alabama-Auburn rivalry has been deemed as one of the most intense rivalries college football, or football in general, has to offer. However, that may not be the case in recruiting.
While Michigan recruits have been seen burning letters from Ohio State, Alabama and Auburn commits have flipped back-and-forth with the frequency of your commonplace square dancer.
Brent Calloway was committed to Alabama seemingly since the beginning of time, just to flip to the Tigers on Signing Day, before flipping yet again to the Tide before the day was over. T.J. Yeldon made the switch from Auburn to Alabama just in time to enroll early at the Capstone.
Cyrus Kouandjio made the same switch after announcing on national television that he would be attending Auburn. All of the switcheroos came to the celebratory yells of the Crimson Tide Nation as it looked like Nick Saban was becoming an unstoppable force.
Reuben Foster (pictured left, photo from US Presswire), in the Class of 2013, made a similar switch to Calloway’s, undoing an early commitment to Alabama to go with the Tigers.
While the rivalry is heated, maybe it is not as heated on the recruiting trails. Eddie Lacy and Chance Warmack seem to think so.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban addresses the media to kickoff Iron Bowl week today, including talking about the team’s focus for the Auburn Tigers, true freshman running back T.J. Yeldon and more.
