Saban to use both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa vs. Louisville

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

It looks as though Nick Saban is incapable of making a choice. Alabama’s head coach will use both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback in their season opener on Saturday.

“I think we have two guys that are weapons and they’ve both played well, so the plan is to play both guys in the game,” Saban told ESPN's Chris Fowler. “So the only issue is who plays first, and we’ll decide that when the time comes.”

But eventually you have to decide, right? Competition is all well and good, but a quarterback rotation doesn’t often work. So, yes, Saban will ultimately have to hurt somebody’s feelings. Now we know that’s not a worry for him. We just don’t know how long he’s going to ride this idea.

“Just like every position, there’s good competition at quarterback,” Saban said back on August 21, via the ESPN.com report. “And nobody’s backing away from that competition.”

Tennessee Lady Volunteers dismiss Anastasia Hayes for violation of team rules

Aug 31, 2018Emailprint

Anastasia Hayes, a member of Tennessee's top-ranked recruiting class in 2017, is no longer with the team.

"Anastasia Hayes has been dismissed from the Tennessee women's basketball team due to a violation of team rules," coach Holly Warlick said in a statement Friday morning.

Hayes, a 5-foot-7 guard from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, averaged 9.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game last season for the Lady Vols. She didn't start but averaged 24.3 minutes per game and was named the SEC's sixth woman of the year. Hayes hit her season high of 17 points twice, against East Tennessee State on Nov. 12 and in the SEC tournament quarterfinals against South Carolina on March 2.

Her exit means that Tennessee will return only one of its four top scorers from last season. Tennessee went 25-8 in 2017-18, falling to Oregon State in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Tennessee opens the season Nov. 11 by hosting Presbyterian.

Each top 25 college football team’s most important player

Originally posted on Larry Brown Sports  |  By Grey Papke  |  Last updated 8/29/18

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

The college football season is upon us, which should have fans pumped across the country. Though it will take a while to get a sense for the best 25 teams in the country, we do have our preseason top 25 entering the first full slate of games. Those teams will be relying on some key players all season. Here is a look at the most important player for each of the preseason’s top 25 teams.

1) Alabama — Tua Tagovailoa, QB

After taking over the second half of the national championship game, Tagovailoa showed what he can do. He is mobile, fearless, and has a big arm. He can give Alabama the kind of big-play ability at quarterback they haven’t seen for a while — possibly ever. He has no shortage of talent around him, much of it NFL-level, and he has already demonstrated skill and poise in the most pressure-filled situation. Expect him to have a solid year at minimum.

Nick Saban compares Louisville QB Jawon Pass to Cam Newton

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Looking ahead to his program’s first game of the 2018 college football season against Louisville, Alabama head coach Nick Saban offered high praise for Cardinals quarterback Jawon Pass.

He compared Pass to former Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, who’s now the franchise quarterback for the Carolina Panthers.

“I think he’s an outstanding, talented player,” Saban said, per AL.com. “Very, very good in high school. Has got great size. Very good arm talent. Very good athlete. He’s kind of a Cam Newton-looking type of guy out there and, when he had the opportunity to play last year, I thought he played very well and showed a lot of poise. They’ve got a very experienced offensive team, so I’m sure that that experience is going to help him and his confidence playing in that first game.”

That’s some heady stuff there, as it’s not like we see comparisons to Newton very often.

From Ethiopia to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, a difficult but quick trip for Ajulu Thatha

By Katie Barnes | Aug 30, 2018espnW.com

Ajulu Thatha learned how to play basketball and already has accepted a scholarship to play in college.

Basketball tucked under one arm, Ajulu Thatha steps out of her Indianapolis apartment and into a hot and humid July day. Her long braids flop over her shoulders as she hops into the front seat of the car. She's quiet. Until the topic turns to her newfound passion: basketball.

Thatha has played the sport for only five years, and she has been in the United States for only six. She was inspired to give basketball a try after attending an Indiana Fever game within months of her plane landing from Ethiopia.

No. 15 USC debuts freshman QB J.T. Daniels vs. UNLV

9:46 PM ETEmailprint

LOS ANGELES -- Southern California head coach Clay Helton walked up to quarterback JT Daniels, looking into his eyes for confirmation the second freshman to start a season opener in the program's storied history was not overwhelmed by the moment.

"They're either that big," said Helton, holding his hands wide open, "or they're like, `All right, let's roll.' "

Daniels was ready, throwing for 282 yards with a 43-yard touchdown pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown to help the No. 15 Trojans overcome a sluggish performance and defeat UNLV 43-21 on Saturday.

Outside of an early gaffe where Daniels turned the wrong way trying to hand the ball off to running back Stephen Carr, forcing the 2017 Gatorade national player of the year to scramble for a 5-yard gain, there were no apparent nerves from the 18-year-old.

Daniels did admit to feeling goosebumps coming down the tunnel for the first time before joining Matt Barkley in 2009 to start in his USC debut.

Aug 28, 2018

Why he committed: The Gators have had impressive recruiting classes since Mike White's arrival. Mann is the first impact in-state player to commit to the Gators. Mann told ESPN what impressed him about White. "He recruited me real hard," Mann said. "Every time I would look up he would be at one of my games. He told me he would not let me fail."

Tom Herman, Texas Longhorns head coach, was other Ohio State assistant on Zach Smith strip club trip

Aug 29, 2018Emailprint

Texas head coach Tom Herman was the assistant coach who accompanied former Buckeyes assistant Zach Smith to a strip club while on a recruiting trip, an Ohio State spokesperson confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday.

The 2014 strip club trip also included high school coaches.

Smith's $600 involvement in the Miami-based excursion was noted in the school's detailed 23-page summary of its investigation released last week, although Smith was the only person named in the documents. The $600 came from Smith's own money, and he did not seek reimbursement for it from the football program or the school.

Upon discovering the information about the strip club trip, the investigators reported it to Ohio State's Office of University Compliance and Integrity and the Athletic Compliance Office to investigate whether the conduct violated NCAA rules.

Under the terms of their suspensions, coach Urban Meyer and AD Gene Smith were allowed to meet with Ohio State players and coaches last Thursday.

10 teams most likely to reach the College Football Playoff

Originally posted on Larry Brown Sports  |  By Grey Papke  |  Last updated 8/27/18

The college football season is upon us, and expectations vary per team. Only a select few programs have a realistic shot of reaching the College Football Playoff. For some schools, it will be a disappointing season if they don’t achieve that goal.

There are a dozen or so teams that will really believe they have the team and the favorable climate they need to challenge for the playoff, but only four teams can actually make it in. Here are ten that will have the best chance of doing just that.
