In a post-game interview following the national championship, Alabama football coach Nick Saban said the following: "I just want everybody to know I'm not conservative. I want to throw the ball all the time."
Believe me, the fact that we have running backs Eddie Lacy, Jalston Fowler, Dee Hart and T.J. Yeldon is not lost on me. I am fully aware that Nick Saban is not going to neglect the running backs in favor of a five-wide package every down.
However, the talent A.J. McCarron displayed on the championship field in New Orleans raises the question now that we're at the peak of recruiting season: "What could he do with 4- and 5-star receivers?"
I will cover this in more depth in the conclusion.
