Why would the #1 quarterback in the country play football in Hueytown, Alabama, then leave Alabama to play for the Florida State Seminoles?Thanks to Nick Saban's arrogance, Jameis Winston is one superstar who will be competing against, and not rolling with, the Tide! Saban didn't want a two-sport athlete. He wants someone who is devoted only to Bama football, not baseball, too.  Of course, if Winston went to Bama, Winston wouldn't be the starter for Alabama this season. (Winston couldn't be playing on another team to be that possible obstacle.) Winston isn't the only person that could comeback to haunt Saban. Seminoles' coach Jimbo Fisher was an assistant under Saban at LSU during their 2003 title season.I see the Auburn Tigers being the only threat to Alabama's perfect season, while the Seminoles will cruise against a very weak ACC Conference.The Miami Hurricanes will not lose another game to set up a rematch in the ACC Championship game. This will be the difference that jumps the Seminoles over the Oregon Ducks in the end.Looking at the caliber of teams the Crimson Tide have defeated in their three title years, they don't impress me. Texas was a watered down squad in 2009, LSU had zero offense in 2011, and Notre Dame was an embarrassment to the title game. The Florida State Seminoles have the same culture of kids from SEC country, a talented QB, and speed on both sides of the ball.This would've been that dream match up for former Seminole coach Bobby Bowden who comes from the state of Alabama.Jameis Winston has the talent to destroy a #1 Alabama Crimson Tide team that is average at best. Winston is an expolosive talent at quarterback that could put up the points like Johnny Manziel did against the Tide, while the Seminole defense is on a different level than the Texas A&M Aggies. This would put more pressure on A.J. McCarron than ever before in his career.Regardless of this years' outcome, Winston will overshadow the Crimson Tide for years to come. And that could be the difference maker for Saban's departure for another big name school.The "College Football Nation" has been weak in recent years. This has led to Alabama being a bully team. They  will meet their match against Winston. The Miami Hurricanes beat real teams when they were a dynasty.Sweetheart's Stuff, If I hear one more thing about Baby Nick Saban, or that back-woods state...I'm going to throw up. I'm not talking a little yack, I mean that time on Las Vegas Blvd (yeah, Colin Cowherd was there) when I had one too many of those "Welcome to Vegas Yard-Long Drinks" (they come in many cool colors). Yeah, like that!At this point, I can't even shop for laundry detergent. And the toilet paper? I'm having that shipped in. What? You thought I stopped using T.P?  You people are so nasty!Later,Sweety
