It's crazy what you could've had. 
John Talty look at how both Alabama and Auburn missed out on winning the recruitment battle for 2013 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston, who led Florida State to a victory over the Tigers in the 2014 BCS title game.

Added bonus: the fact that Winston was interested in going to Texas, but couldn't get the time and day from former Longhorn head coach Mack Brown. And you wonder why they ran Brown out of Austin. (

Richard Deitsch said WHAT?
Asked in a Sports Illustrated college football media round table on a future replacement for Lee Corso on ESPN College Gameday, Richard Deitsch suggests Alabama head coach Nick Saban. What kind of sick and twisted daemon are you, Richard Deitsch.
