Kiffin: Alabama would have won national title if I was still there

  Kiffin: Alabama would have won national title if I was still there It didn't take Lane Kiffin long to start adding talent to the FAU program, but a part of him is still wondering what might have been. Kiffin was replaced as offensive coordinator prior to Alabama's loss to Clemson in the national title game, something he thinks may have cost the Crimson Tide a championship.

Nick Saban bristles at quarterback questions | NFL.com - www.nfl.com. Alabama coach Nick Saban has had his fill of questions about the ongoing quarterback competition at Alabama, and let a reporter know about it 27, 2014 at 12:54 p.m. Gerald Herbert/Associated Press.

Absolutely not, according to Nick Saban . The Alabama coach bristled at suggestions that Tagovailoa could be rested just because of the opponent and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is a little bit beaten up, and with an easy game against The Citadel on the horizon, there was some thinking that

The ongoing development of Alabama sophomore Jalen Hurts and a question about playing time for true freshman Tua Tagovailoa combined Wednesday to take a simmering situation and put Tide coach Nick Saban in full, rolling boil.

Tagovailoa saw his first playing time last week against Fresno State, and when Saban was asked how he planned to use him this week against Colorado State, Saban said the coaching staff hadn't decided.

Bill Belichick bristles when asked about future of Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo

  Bill Belichick bristles when asked about future of Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo Nothing upsets Bill Belichick as quickly as a question about the future of his quarterbacks. Following Saturday's trade which sent third string quarterback Jacoby Brissett to the Colts, Belichick was asked whether the Patriots might be stretched thin at the position in March 2018 during the offseason. Jimmy Garoppolo's contract expires after the 2017 season, and Tom Brady will be turning 42 years old."With all due respect, I don't think there are any games scheduled in March," Belichick said Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

Alabama quarterbacks have played prominent roles in American society off the gridiron as well. Both Farley Moody and Charlie Joplin died while serving in the First World War. Hurts was the first freshman to start at QB for Nick Saban .

"And I wouldn't tell you if I did," he said (via al.com). "So I don't mind you asking the question, but I don't need to answer it."

Then Saban got rolling.

"But I will call Colorado State and tell them exactly what we want to do as soon as I get out of here," he said, tapping the podium. "I know (Colorado State coach) Mike Bobo, his dad lives up by my house at the lake (in Georgia). So, I'll just call him up and tell him who we're playing, when, how long, when we're putting them in, tell them the whole thing. Alright? Is that alright with you? So you can call him and find out."

Tagovailoa, a highly touted recruit from Hawaii, completed 6 of 9 passes for 64 yards and a touchdown against Fresno State.

Hurts' development, meanwhile, continues to be a talking point among fans and the media despite being the SEC Offensive Player of the Year as a true freshman last season. In Alabama's 2-0 start, he has completed 24 of 36 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns without an interception and rushed 25 times for 209 yards and two more TDs
