    Changing an already good-looking uniform can be a recipe for disaster. 

     

    Clemson's uniforms have always been a fan favorite so you might be thinking, what could they do to improve it? The answer is tipping their hats to the old-school look while keeping it modern at the same time. Genius.

     

    Bigger numbers and subtle changes to the Tiger paw are the highlights of the change.

     

     

    Recreating history is what the Tigers are going for, and with this new look they might do just that.

    Age is just a number according to Nick Saban.

     

    The Alabama coach is just as young as he feels. On paper, he's 64, going 65 in October, and says that other coaches are using his age against him when it comes to recruiting.

     

    "I'm not looking to get out," Saban told . "I'm really not, even though I know that's going to start being talked about more now. What I have noticed is that it's the first time people are starting to say to recruits, 'He won't be there the whole time you're there,' because of my age. Does that really impact your ability to stay good? I don't know. But if it did, it would make you say, 'Well, what's up with this?' My philosophy is that I'm going to be here for as long as I feel I can be effective, impact the players, help them be more successful in life and continue to have a successful program."

     

    Saban and Alabama have been one in the same for a long time now, and that's the way he sees it in the near future. 

     

    "I think you get to station in your life, whether it's family or relationships, a combination of all the above, that you just feel like you're entrenched," Saban continued. "You can't even visualize being somewhere else, and that's where I am right now."

     

    As long as Saban can be effective with the Tide, he'll be sticking around. Judging by the last championship, that could be a while.

    Texas Tech opponents beware. 

     

    If you try going up for a jump ball against Derrick Willies, you probably won't have much of a chance. The Red Raiders receiver did an impressive 60-inch box jump sitting down. Oh not to mention, he was wearing a 10lb vest. Yikes.

    The Lovie Smith era has begun at the University of Illinois.

     

    Smith was introduced to his players and received a warm welcome. It's always a good sign when players have this kind of reaction to a new coach.

     

     

    So far Smith has received a positive reaction from everyone around the program as well. It'll be interesting to see what he does in the years ahead.

    Penn State has a beast that goes by the name of Saquon Barkley. 

     

    The Nittany Lions running back is only getting stronger by the day. Barkley, at 215 pounds, put up 390 pounds in the weight room. This is when the real season starts.

    Hard work pays off. 

     

    Oregon State safety Gabe Ovgard was rewarded for all the hard work he puts in and given a full-ride athletic scholarship. The Beavers know a quality guy when they see one.

    There's no love lost between the SEC and the Big Ten.

     

    Georgia head coach Kirby Smart was asked his thoughts on Jim Harbaugh having Michigan spring practices down in Florida at the IMG Academy, and he had a little something to say about it.

     

    "They're obviously trying to gain a competitive advantage, and obviously that's their right, but I think the NCAA in due time will have to step in and keep it from getting out of hand," Smart said. 

     

     

    Harbaugh wasn't a fan of the comments so he decided to take to Twitter talking about the "Georgia coach". This probably won't end well.

     

     

    There needs to be a Michigan-Georgia matchup scheduled just to see this play out on the field.

    Watch those Twitter fingers.

     

    The NCAA has issued a ruling that coaches are no longer allowed to subtweet unsigned recruits. The bigger Twitter becomes, the more college coaches want to express themselves and their enjoyment of getting a commitment from a recruit. No more until the kid signs on the dotted line.

     

     

     

    Subtweeting is so perfect because people know who you're talking about without you mentioning that person, so the NCAA will have to work overtime to actually catch a coach in the act.

    Leonard Fournette is a beast.

     

    Everyone who has ever seen an LSU football game already knows that. Now we get a look at just how strong the Tigers running back truly is. Fournette uploaded a video to Instagram demonstrating how he squats 405 pounds like it's nothing.

    Slight work, indeed.

    This guy won't be able to live this down.

     

    A Jeopardy! contestant was given the hints "Buckeye" and "Big Ten", but still couldn't piece together that Olympic legend Jesse Owens attended Ohio State. It could've been an innocent mix-up and perhaps Chris does know the answer, but he won't be able to escape this question the near future.
