It has be converted into a favorite story for Nick Saban to make mention of on the speaking circuit. A young boy — maybe 8 years old — approached the Alabama coach to sign a sphere following last year’s spring stratagem. Kid: “Do we have anybody besides who can play quarterback besides Blake Sims.” Saban: “No.” Kid: “We ain’t going to get a game.” Harkening back to that vignette this week to this place at the SEC spring meetings, Saban concluded, “You communication about a guy overcoming a portion.” Yes, Sims was both bright and punching bag in leading the Crimson Tide to a 12-2 conjuncture. It goes with the territory. That third SEC title in 2014 only equaled the include of national championships in the Saban series.
Nothing, it seems, is ever worthy enough for a program that smaller than six months ago was No. 1 with a bullet. Then came Ohio State, then came questions, then specifically came a quarterback inquiry that might be bigger than after all the rest year. “It’s unsettled,” Saban uttered of the quarterback situation. Obviously. And with a view to the second successive year. Florida State alienation Jacob Coker hasn’t panned extinguished (yet). There are four others in successi~ the depth chart, none with much experience. For a program that resolution be favored again (by many) to reach the SEC and participate in the College Football Playoff, this doesn’t be seen to be much of a question to those doing the favoring. Saban to the end of time seems to find something or someone. The defense should be smothering again. Another top recruiting class arrives. [More]
