So much happened at Tide (SEC) Media Days, Alabama football fans may have missed some important snippets of information from Nick Saban, Tua, Dylan Moses and Jerry Jeudy.

It was ‘rock star’ time Wednesday in Hoover, AL. And not just for Alabama football fans. The front acts for the Crimson Tide were three of the best players in college football, Tua Tagovailoa, Dylan Moses and Jerry Jeudy. The headliner was the greatest college football coach of all-time, Nick Saban.

It just means more, doesn’t it? Alabama football fans must sometimes wonder if the league’s signature slogan was written to describe being a Crimson Tide fan.

The sideshows on Wednesday were Will Muschamp, Joe Moorhead and Chad Morris. Only Morris escaped without having to talk about Alabama football. And why wouldn’t he? Asking the Arkansas coach what it will take for the Hogs to beat the Crimson Tide, would, in 2019, be ridiculous.

Joe Moorhead was asked to comment on his Bulldogs matching up physically with the Crimson Tide. He was quick to offer a verbal genuflection about having “the utmost respect for Coach Saban.” He dodged the physicality question while saying his defense did a pretty good job last season. (Author’s Note: The current 11-game Crimson Tide win streak against the Bulldogs is not ending anytime soon.)

Will Muschamp won the no-nonsense award by easily admitting Nick Saban is the best coach in college football history. Will also said,

"As far as beating Alabama, you got to go beat Alabama. They are not going to beat themselves. They are very well-coached. They have really good players. They’re going to attack you in all three phases. That’s how you got to approach that game as far as beating that football team."

Any opposing SEC coach thinking of stealing a win from a declining Nick Saban, best think again. SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey said Wednesday, while Saban was still recovering from his hip replacement and restricted from using a driver or 3-wood on the golf course, the results were amazing. Teeing off with a 5-iron (from the front tees), Sankey said Nick shot a 77. If you play golf you know how impressive that score is for anyone, especially a 67-year old.
