Football Buzz: December 11, 2013

Almost half week after the SEC Championship, a lot of headlines and comments have be brought out from SEC Coaches and teams. With the entire college football world in disarray, there is plenty buzzing this time of year. Here are a few quick comments and thoughts to think about in the coming weeks.

There is plenty buzzing around the University of Alabama these past few days. Everything from head coach comments to head coach decisions. Yes, it has happened AGAIN and true or not it is certainly enticing. With Mack Brown reportedly stepping down between now and Friday, Nick Saban's name has been thrown into the mix yet again. With Saban's wife house shopping in Austin and "supposedly" closing on a house, the rumors keep growing and growing. The Saban family and some players have both expressed their dislike in how Alabama fans act and carry themselves. And reports of "special pressure" to win at Alabama only helps his case to move West. With a contract already in place for Saban, it just sits on his desk and collects dust. The reason? I don't know. But with all Texas has to offer it isn't such a far thought that by the beginning of next season, Nick will be sporting his straw hat in Austin. The money? The multitude of recruits? A new challenge? He doesn't need the SEC anymore. The playoff system would benefit him wherever he is. Who knows. For now we must wait. The answers will come out sooner rather than later.

Plenty of buzz around Auburn. National Championship buzz, Heisman buzz, Coach of the Year buzz, you name it. This has been a very memorable year for the Tigers and it's not over yet. Auburn starts out as an 8.5 point underdog in the Championship game and I have heard everything from FSU blowout or Auburn cant stop FSU from everyone at work. That preview will be later though. For the moment, the next event takes place this Saturday where Tre Mason attends New York City as a finalist for the Heisman. It will certainly be hard to top Jameis Winston, but none the less, it is still a very special moment to be rated as one of the top 6 most outstanding players in ALL of college football. Also, Coach Gus Malzahn receives his Coach of the Year Award this coming Thursday during ESPN's Award Presentation Ceremony. Many great things to come for the Tigers.
