No. 1 Alabama, No. 3 Florida State meet in massive opener

UA students camp out for tickets to Alabama vs. Florida State game

Alabama is a ideal 10-0 straight up in season openers under head coach Nick Saban, and 9-1 against the spread, all while going against quality competition. "Until he gets there, you're always concerned".

I'm guessing neither Saban nor Fisher will break bread with a media person between now and the rest of the season.

Bama fans should remember Keith Gavin (who could) play a huge role in the passing game with his size and speed.

"It's a long season".

Then there was November 13, 1993, and No. 1 Florida State traveled to No. 2 Notre Dame for another Game of the Century won by the Irish after they survived dramatics by the Seminoles at the end.

"We've got to be ready for whatever", Hamilton said. "When it isn't that way, you will see a very inconsistent team".

Honda to reveal pure-electric Urban concept — FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW
Remember the Mini E? Some of the lessons learned from the field tests were used in development of BMW's pure electric i3. Part of BMWs "Number One Next" strategy, it forms a major part of the plan for all BMW cars and Mini models to go green.

Head coach Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide looks on during the game against the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium on October 15, 2016 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Although Fisher has achieved more than Saban's other assistants, the familiarity that Saban has of Fisher's offense is a definite advantage for Alabama. Only three of the 10 have been on-campus feastings against Western Carolina, San Jose State and Kent State, with the other seven coming in neutral-site venues in either Atlanta or Arlington, Texas.

In another Week 1 matchup of two preseason Top 25 teams, Florida is sitting as a four-point underdog ahead of a neutral-site game against MI at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

As much as anybody, the Seminoles have done their part to disprove the notion that the Southeastern Conference is college football's top league.

"We see a guy similar to him in Jalen every day at practice", the Crimson Tide junior defensive tackle said this week.

Translation? This should be the highest-scoring game of the first weekend provided both teams don't have a blatant case of first-quarter jitters.

Exposure for recruiting purposes is a plus as well.

Brexit Talks Resume: Nettlesome Issues Remain, No Breakthrough in Sight
Issues involving Ireland, including the Good Friday Agreement and the Common Travel Area, are expected to be discussed tomorrow. Davis said Monday this week's talks were all about " driving forward the technical discussions across all the issues ".

The Seminoles also have late-season road tests against defending national champion Clemson (Nov. 11) and Florida (Nov. 25).

Jimbo Fisher ran Nick Saban's offense from 2000-2004 at LSU.

"I think this is a great opportunity for our team to play in a great environment at a new stadium in Atlanta against one of the top teams in the country".

His players certainly seem eager for kickoff to arrive. "Everybody keeps asking me this and that, but it doesn't matter what I say. So that makes him even better as a quarterback in my opinion". He was shot in the right leg outside a Tuscaloosa bar early Sunday morning.

With the Raekwon Davis situation, we're still gathering information. "I feel like now I'm doing a better job of respecting quarterbacks from being able to escape and just learning not to run past (them) and push the pocket and not only try to sack them but at least rattle them or get a hand in their face". Sophomore tailback Josh Jacobs remains limited with a hamstring injury, and Saban said the decision on his availability for the opener would be made later in the week.
