The Southeastern Conference won't suspend Alabama defensive end Quinton Dial for a hit on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray.
The league said in a statement Friday that it had reviewed video of that play and others in the SEC championship game and that the two schools would handle any punishments internally.
Dial leveled Murray during a second-quarter interception return. He was not penalized on the play.
The SEC statement says the conference is satisfied with actions taken by the schools. The Crimson Tide plays Notre Dame for the national title on Jan. 7 in Miami.
Coach Nick Saban typically doesn't disclose any internal punishments.
Dial has played in all but one game and his 21 tackles, include 4.5 behind the line of scrimmage.

We’ve been waiting for further visual evidence of Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron’s chest tattoo and it’s finally here.

Now we have the addition of “MVP”, “Home Team”...
A.J. McCarron’s chest tattoo has reached some sort of folklore status. When the Alabama quarterback’s ink job first appeared on the Internet last summer, the reactions were strong. Our own Steve DelVecchio called it “just embarrassing.” Others described it in far worse ways.
We later came to find out that the tattoo actually had some strong personal meaning for McCarron...

Nick Saban spent time in Vienna, Ga. Thursday and the reason was Montravius Adams. Alabama is high on Adams' list and he may just over a month from announcing his decision.
Alabama’s basketball season has barely begun, but already it appears to be in a death spiral. After back-to-back NCAA Tournament teams in 2011 and 2012, there was cautious optimism that Coach Anthony Grant had the Crimson Tide on the right path.

CALL TO ARMS
The Buffalo Bills may be in the market for a new quarterback. After going with Ryan Fitzpatrick for four seasons, they appear ready for a change.
Shannon Smallwood posted an article in Rant Sports recently suggesting that Aaron Murray is Peyton Manning 2.0.
