It will be interesting to see how the offense will look without Kiffin.  Sarkisian has a similar background to Kiffin, but he’s not Kiffin. Again, put aside the jokes and REALLY stop and think about how crazy it is that Alabama named a new offensive coordinator just days before the BIG rematch with Clemson.  I love how Julio Jones responded today when asked about the change.  The fact is, Kiffin got to drive "daddy's truck" to prom..."daddy's  truck" is just fine with or without the driver (lane tiffin)now see....there goes my mac changing tiffin to tiffin. (and again) Well, that's kinda my point anyway. :)

Nick Saban says "Hurts is the most mature freshman I've ever seen!" Hurts hasn’t “looked” like a freshman all season long, and WE Bama fans adore him on and off the field. The more we learn about Jalen, the more we want to know about Jalen.  The big question is, with a new play-caller in his ear, how will that impact the true freshman on Monday night?  Oh yea, watch for the on-sides kick again...maybe?  (i think that as likely as snow in Tuscaloosa this weekend.) ROLL TIDE and hang with 95.3 The Bear all day Monday before the game with our special Bama pregame show!
