Found November 14, 2013 on The Sports Bank:
Alabama, not Michigan, gets Da’Shawn Hand. Michigan football looks pretty awful right now, but with their recruiting classes they have on the way, they’re going to be really solid. No. 1 ranked college football recruit Da’Shawn Hand would have really been the jewel of those recruiting classes. Bummer! Because Michigan was the favorite to land him. He really was. Brady Hoke was unable to snatch Da’Shawn Hand away from Nick Saban, the master of this domain. Although until today, Saban has never landed the top overall recruit ever. Da’ Shawn Hand is considered to be the nation’s best high school football player in the 2014 class of college football prospects. Da’Shawn Hand made the announcement live from his school’s gymnasium at Woodbridge High School in Woodbridge, Virgina. Da’Shawn Hand has received more than 90 offers. He delayed the announcement by 40 minutes, then delayed it another 10 minutes. #DIVA #PLEASELOOKATME So good job Yahoo! Rivals and NBC SN for dragging this thing ou...

Mack Brown On Saban To Texas: “If I Do My Job Well, There’s No Job To Get”

One of the storylines that has been hanging around this college football season is the potential move of Nick Saban to Texas for 2014. Now, to be clear, Saban has vehemently denied these rumors and having any interest at all, and Texas still has a head football coach after all — Mack Brown has the Longhorns 6-0 in the Big 12, currently leading the conference. Despite the turnaround...

Mack Brown: Nick Saban Is Not Trying To Take My Job

Mack Brown can see the writing on the wall, and is trying to hold off his inevitable departure from Texas for another year or two. Texas has won six straight games since September, and that awful loss to BYU is a somewhat distant memory.  Brown of course has dealt with widespread criticism in the face of rumors about Nick Saban replacing as Longhorns head coach. Brown says he and...

Double Your Paycheck Picks Week 12

I was talking with a friend via the sorcery of text messaging last night (BECAUSE WHY HAVE A CONVERSATION WHERE I'M REQUIRED TO STRING TOGETHER THOUGHTS ON THE SPOT), and he told me that a woman called Nick Saban's radio call-in show and told Saban that if he ever left, he'd have to scrape her off the front of the moving truck. This, of course, makes total sense because...

Mississippi State hosts top-ranked Alabama

Top-ranked Alabama looks indestructible, winning its past seven games by at least three touchdowns.
