The end of a streak

This is some stat.

“He’s a great person and a great guy to have in your organization.”

Booch, the five-star offensive analyst.

“Most of the stuff he does is behind the scenes, like film study and administrative-type work,” Saban said Wednesday. “He always does a ‘What do we need to do on offense?’ for me, and offering his opinion in terms of improving based on film study and things like that. His role has always sort of been that, and he’s done a really, really good job of it.

Bet he makes a mean cup of coffee, too.  How long before he’s redeemed sufficiently by his time in Tuscaloosa to get another head coaching offer?

You have been warned.

No doubt this was said in the same way Yoda once schooled Luke.

It’s good to know that Kirby still lives on as a subject of locker room discussion in Tuscaloosa.

TFW you don’t feel

This is heartwarming.

Alabama coach Nick Saban says top recruit Antonio Alfano “basically quit.”

Saban says the defensive end for the second-ranked Crimson Tide stopped coming to class and the football building. He says Alabama tried to set up counseling for him and that it remains available but “until he responds you just have to assume the guy quit.”

Alfano’s father, Frankie, posted on Twitter on Friday that his son’s grandmother was “very ill and is still fighting on life support.” He said Antonio had not attended classes or practices.

He’s a five-star kid, so I can’t figure out if the Sabanbot does or doesn’t have time for this shit.

Nick doubles down.

Can a football program get away with locking the gates to a stadium after halftime, so no one can leave?  Asking for a friend…

That… isn’t how it’s supposed to work.

Ah, yes, here’s the Nick Saban I dislike.

Alabama football:  it’s not entertainment; it’s an obligation!

By the way, ‘Bama is close to a sixty-point favorite this week, with temperatures in the mid-90s.  Good luck with those expectations, Nick.

“‘Scuse my language…”

There’s the Nick Saban I don’t care for, and then there’s this Nick Saban.
