  2. Tennessee should move on from Lane Kiffin drama

    Alex Scarborough

  4. SEC morning links

    Alex Scarborough

    1. On Tuesday, my colleague Greg Ostendorf wrote about how Auburn freshman Roc Thomas is primed for a big second half to the season. Watching Thomas from afar, I'd have to agree. While he's not as fast as Corey Grant or as powerful as Cameron Artis-P...

  10. SEC slant: Midseason's underrated players

    Alex Scarborough

    Not everyone can be a first-team All-SEC selection. When we created our midseason all-conference team, we understood that some players would be left off. When you have Dak Prescott making a Heisman run, other quarterbacks are forgotten. But that does...

    Alex Scarborough

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban slowly brushed his hair back after one botched play. He slammed his headset to the ground after another. He threw his hands up and looked dejected throughout the game. Alabama survived Arkansas on Saturday, 14-13, an...

  12. Alabama's focus should be on execution, not emotion

    Alex Scarborough

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- When a coach starts talking about the psyche of his team, you know something's wrong. They're football coaches after all, not therapists. When intangibles are the message, it's usually because there's nothing tangible left to h...

  16. Alabama special teams a sore spot

    Alex Scarborough

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban liked his kicker's mindset. Adam Griffith, he said, was "even keel -- not real emotional." For a kicker, that's particularly high praise. "When he gets out of that a little bit, he gets right back to trying to ...
