From the "Fore Unlawful Carnal Knowledge department comes word that Alabama head coach Nick Saban and partner Mark Ingram will be grouped with Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze and partner Sean Tuohy for the annual Chick-fil-A Bowl Golf Challenge.
Saban, Freeze, and 9 nine other head coaches, including Auburn's Gus Malzahn and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier, along with "celebrity" partners associated with their schools will tee up with at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Ga. to compete for a share of $520,000 in scholarship money for their respective school. Malzahn will be partnered with Bo Jackson, while Spurrier partners with Sterling Sharpe.
Of note is that the tournament still goes by (as of now) the "Chick-fil-A Bowl Golf Challenge." Apparently CFA hasn't gotten around to changing the golf tournament's name to mirror the CFA Bowl's rebranding as the Peach Bowl once more. These things apparently take time.
