Coach to Watch: Nick Saban, Alabama

Saban is coming off his third national championship in four years with the Crimson Tide and established one of the most dominant programs in the history of the game down in Tuscaloosa.

Much of the credit is due to his meticulous preparation and commitment to being the best, so it’s hard to imagine him being too happy about taking time away from film study, recruiting and other actions that could improve his team in order to appease the media.

However, he will be there and will likely have to field many questions about a potential three-peat.

His secondary will certainly be a concern, as top cornerback Dee Milliner defected to the NFL this spring and leaves a big hole at the position. Considering passing coverage was not the defense’s strong suit in 2012, it remains to be seen what Saban is cooking up to improve in that area.

As always when it comes to Saban, expect the unexpected. Make sure you are tuned in when he takes the podium at 12:20 p.m. on Thursday.


Player to Watch: Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M

The controversial Aggies quarterback is going to be under fire when he speaks at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, as he’s had quite an interesting offseason and much explaining to do.

Most recently, Johnny Football left the Manning Passing Camp early with what some are speculating was a severe hangover from partying.

While camp officials are denying it and Manziel’s father claimed his son was just dehydrated, he will certainly be pressed on the issue by the media.

As per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has not publicly commented on the rumors or his decision to leave the camp and has only apologized in private.

The sophomore signal-caller needs to be focusing on helping Texas A&M win a championship and repeating his Heisman-worthy level of success on the field, but his off-field antics will take center stage for at least another few days down in Hoover, Alabama.
