Lane Kiffin returning to Alabama for 2015, says there's room to improve

"I made a comment at the Sugar Bowl that I would be back this fall at Alabama and that is definitely the plan," Kiffin said in a statement released by the school. "This time of year, there are lots of things out there regarding other coaching opportunities, but I want to reaffirm my commitment to the University of Alabama, Coach Saban, and our team. I'm excited about what our offensive staff was able to accomplish last year, but I also think there are a lot of things we can do a better job of in terms of putting our players in the best situation to have success."

"After being here for a year, I can see why this is such a special place in terms of the history, tradition, and how much football means to everyone at Alabama," Kiffin said. "I also have learned so much in the time I've spent with Coach Saban and really have a better understanding of what makes him the great coach that he is. I think the more time I can spend learning from him, the better coach I will be in the future."

Lester Cotton on his recruitment: 'Everybody knows that's where I want to be'

"It's slowed down a lot," Cotton said prior to the 2014 Mr. Football Banquet Wednesday at Montgomery's Alabama Activity Center. "Everybody knows that's where I want to be. They don't bother me as much as they used to."

"They told me there are three spots open and they told me to start working out at right tackle because I'll have a real good opportunity to play and have good playing time," he said. "I know how to play both positions and I know how to play them very well. I'll be able to adjust and learn my splits and stuff."

T.J. Yeldon - Game time decision

"He's been able to practice each and every day that we've been here and he's looked better and better each day," Saban said Wednesday at the final coaches press conference before the Sugar Bowl. "We're very hopeful. It'll probably be a pregame decision.
"With all injured players, they're always involved and whether they're able to go out and do their job effectively and we'll make that decision at that time but we're very hopeful that he'll be able to make a contribution in this game."
 "I don't think there's any question about the fact that we've always played more than one back and we have confidence in (Fowler and Jones)," Saban said. "Jalston Fowler has played many roles for us this year and always been very effective in whatever role that has been and probably has as much diversity as any player on our team. He's certainly done an outstanding job this year.
"Tyren Jones, when he's had an opportunity, has done a good job for us and Derrick Henry has played better and better as the year has gone along and played some of his best football at the end of the season.
"We're very confident in all those players. They have an opportunity in the game that they're capable of going in and doing a very good job for us."

Bumpy flight to New Orleans spooks Blake Sims

"When we pull up in the plane, we see him hop up on the seat just looking around scared," said fullback Jalston Fowler who revealed Sims' fear. "I was just laughing at him."
The rainy and windy weather Saturday made for a choppy ride.

"I don't like the landing and taking off part," Sims said. "That's not my cup of tea."

"I think it was cute,"Landon Collins said as he saw Sims with a death grip on the arm rest.
Sims, one of the four team captains, heard it from everyone on the plane.
"They try to crack jokes on me and try to mess with me at the same time. I try to put my headphones on and block it all out."
