Alabama has a winning tradition, and they're eager to get back to that.
The Crimson Tide lost last year in the College Football Playoff to Ohio State. Of course that didn't sit well with the team and you can bet the farm they're still thinking about it and plan to use it as motivation to get back to the top.
For Alabama "The Process Begins Now" and they're ready to begin, but more importantly end it correctly.
A new era will begin in Gainesville once fall camp begins. After a 7-5 season, Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp was fired and the school hired Colorado State Rams head coach Jim McElwain to replace him.
The most-known member of the Crimson Tide, player or coach, is Nick Saban.
That doesn't mean everyone else should be overlooked. It just might take certain fans a while to recognize a lesser-known player. After seeing this video, you will be able to recognize O.J. Howard from now on. The Alabama tight end interviewed fans who had no clue who he was. One guy even said Howard could stand to put in a little more practice. This is awkward.
It's not easy getting college football coaches to honestly comment on another coach, player or team. Most coaches don't want to give opposing teams billboard material, which is why there is a lot of coach speak or overused cliches used during the year.
