Why didn’t Gus Malzahn let Nick Marshall face the music at SEC Media Days?

Johnny Manziel was a Heisman Trophy winner. He was amazing, on and off the field. On the field, he defied laws of nature, and was exhausting to watch.

Rashaan Evans: “I’m being treated like I’m Satan.”

The classic move by the Aubuhn Fambly is to deflect. Just listen to their talking heads. Instead of owning up to the travesties being committed on a daily basis against the family of Rashaan Evans, the immediate response is not to admit their sin, but to deflect.

What does Bama’s low A-Day attendance mean? The answer is in your Sunday Cup of Coffee.

Well, another A-Day is in the books, and another game where “we have more questions than answers” will be analyzed to the point of ridiculous speculation.
