NICK SABAN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Saban Not Ready To Name Starter

University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban doesn’t feel the need to name a starting quarterback right now. With a ringing endorsement of Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, many expect Saban to name FSU transfer Jacob Cocker the starter. Not so fast my friend. “That’s really not internally the perception by me, our staff or our players,” Saban said. “Jake Coker...

Rich Rodriguez Tells Nick Saban To ‘Cry Me A River…No One Comes To Games To Watch Defensive Coaches’

Nick Saban says national title expectations 'unrealistic' for first-year Alabama quarterbacks

The first official practice is still more than a week off, but the big-picture questions are rolling in. Most, in Alabama's case, circle back to the vacant quarterback job. It's been asked in just about every way without getting much of an answer from Nick Saban. The coach appeared on the SVP and Russillo Show this afternoon on ESPN Radio as part of the "Car Wash"...

Nick Saban Said He Had To Convince Team To “Try To Play In A Consolation Game” During Last Year’s Sugar Bowl

Alabama entered last year’s Sugar Bowl as the No. 3 team in America and a 17 point favorite over No. 10 Oklahoma. Of course, the Sooners ended up beating the Crimson Tide, 45-31.
