Leach joined Bruce Feldman on his podcast, The Audible, and things got a bit weird, as they tend to do. In answering a...

Saban disagrees with McCarron about young Bama players

You would be hard pressed to fine a more successful coach-quarterback combination than Nick Saban and A.J. McCarron. The Alabama duo won two national titles together and a bevy of games while the pair was in Tuscaloosa.  Alabama’s 2013 season didn’t go as expected, though. The Crimson Tide fell in historic fashion to Auburn and in an upset to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. McCarron...

It’s not time for Florida to start looking for a new men’s basketball coach, but it might be soon. Each offseason, it seems as if Billy Donovan is rumored as a potential candidate for an NBA job.

Nick Saban Backs Florida’s Will Muschamp, Says “He’s Doing A Really, Really Good Job”

Will Muschamp has been the coach at Florida for three seasons and Gator fans likely expected more than what they’ve gotten from the 42-year-old. Muschamp is 22-16 as the head man in Gainesville, and Florida is coming off a 4-8 season during which the Gators went 3-5 in the SEC and fell to Georgia Southern, a FCS team. Nick Saban, however, is a big fan of the Florida coach, who...

Despite winding up in a normal motion and finishing with his foot forward, he threw the...
