Jalen Hurts prefers Steve Sarkisian over Lane Kiffin

"I think Lane has done a really, really good job for us. The team never really gets a curveball thrown at them". Last year, Robert Foster was the only guy. We will find out if a coach who hasn't called plays in two years is part of the aforementioned "everything". "The attitude has been really, really good". Now, is that maturity? "I'm happy for him that he got an opportunity to be a head coach again, and we'll help him every way that we can".

"The guy has been with us the whole year, the whole football season", Saban said. Saban added that Sarkisian knows the offensive system inside and out and its terminology.

Before you make too much of Alabama changing offensive coordinators before its biggest game of the season, you might want to consider this analysis from one of the greatest offensive players in the program's history. "I think he's put them in positions to have success, and I think they appreciate that". "I didn't do a very good job with the players".

In the post-game press conference after the win over Washington, on how Alabama's All-American senior Eddie Jackson, a safety who had a season-ending injury earlier in the year, has still helped the defense even though he's not on the field. He's watching a lot more film, breaking things more down to him.

Nick Saban abruptly sped up that process when he and Kiffin "mutually" agreed to part ways Monday so Kiffin could exclusively focus on his new job as head coach at Florida Atlantic.

"I think a lot of people were frustrated with the way things went, and they're working hard this week to get those things corrected". After all, he owns championship game or playoff wins during his career over the likes of Mack Brown, Bob Stoops, Mark Dantonio, Les Miles, Phillip Fulmer, Dabo Swinney, Chris Petersen and Meyer.

Falcons Pro Bowl WR Julio Jones, a former Alabama star, is convinced that the Crimson Tide's 11th-hour move to replace Lane Kiffin with Steve Sarkisian at offensive coordinator won't adversely affect Nick Saban's team in its quest for a national championship.

Saban said that he does not want to make changes to the offensive philosophy of the team, but has other members of the team he wants to be involved in the offense. He completed half of his passes (7-of-14) for 57 yards, averaging 4.1 yards per attempt and picking up three first downs. That's not going to fly under Saban, nor should anyone expect it to. He knows the players.

Pigskin forecast: Clemson over Alabama by 7 (quarterback highlights); Seattle Seahawks over Detroit Lions by 3 (playoff-tested playmakers); Houston Texans over Oakland Raiders by 1 (eyesore offense); Pittsburgh Steelers over Miami Dolphins by 10 (Le'Veon Bell highlights); New York Giants over Green Bay Packers by 1 (Eli Manning flashback).

I hope it works out for Sarkisian. Scarbrough also scored both of Alabama's offensive touchdowns.
