At the time, I found it a little strange that Garrick McGee chose to abandon a head coaching position at UAB to reunite with Bobby Petrino as his offensive coordinator and to make the move without telling his players first.

Man, so how bad is it at running back at Alabama, with Bo Scarborough going down with an ACL injury? This bad:
Three of the five remaining running backs behind Henry and Kenyan Drake on Alabama’s spring roster are walk-ons. Another — DeSherrius Flowers is a true freshman. The other — redshirt freshman Ronnie Clark — has rotated between defensive back and running back during his Tide career and is coming off of an Achilles tendon injury he suffered last year.
No, that’s not as dire a situation as Aaron Murray faced handing off at mid-season in 2013. But it’s still amazing to consider how much of the incredible depth at the position Saban had built has melted away… without resorting to roster management.
Based on today’s stats, Nick Chubb has lost his starting job.
Just in case you need a reminder for an excuse to visit Athens in the spring.
