Orlando Sentinel story tracks Saban hating

Today's front page of the Orlando Sentinel sports section.

The Orlando Sentinel pulled few punches with today’s sports front story on Nick Saban. Taking a look at the list of jilted employers and fan bases left in his wake, the story spelled out how and why people are “Hatin’ Saban.” A quick excerpt:

Saban’s popularity isn’t much better with the general public — he’s just too easy to dislike. He’s often shown on TV scowling on the sidelines or yelling at officials. He sometimes seems combative and arrogant in interviews. And his teams are usually very good. Saban, whose annual salary is just under $6 million a year, has never had a losing season during his 13 college campaigns. He’s a two-time national coach of the year, has a 133-53-1 career college record and has won that pair of national crowns.”

Rare video of Scott Cochran stretching drills

Get ready to see Alabama strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran in his element — running around stretching drills quoting rap songs and loving life.

The media isn’t typically permitted to film this stuff so this is rare. He’s truly one of a kind.

And more photos added to album too.

VIDEO: One final practice viewing period

This will be the final installment in the year-long series of practice videos. I hope this will hold you over until spring ball.

Vegas still liking Tide over Spartans

The odds makers haven’t budged since installing Alabama as a 10-point favorite to beat Michigan State on Saturday afternoon in the Capital One Bowl. See those lines for yourself right here.

That number is of no concern to Michigan State offensive lineman Joel Foreman.

“That’s some guy somewhere that’s probably never played football who picked those numbers,” Foreman said. “So he’s not going to be playing in that came on Saturday. We will. So we’ll be ready.”

We’re getting ready to head over to Alabama’s last practice availability to the media. This week is blowing right by. Check out some photos.

VIDEO: Tide practices outside Tuesday

The wind died down enough this afternoon for the Crimson Tide to practice outdoors again.
