Alabama freshman Collin Sexton is a force to be reckoned with

Collin Sexton is the closest thing college basketball has to Russell Westbrook. In high school, he brought Dwyane Wade out of his seat. He almost led Alabama to a win playing 3-on-5. What else does he have in store?

The last time Alabama didn't play in the College Football Playoff, BCS National Championship Game or a BCS bowl game was 2010, and there's not a single SEC head coach from that season who's still coaching at his same school.

Early sharp CFB Playoff money on Alabama

A few weeks away from the Clemson-Alabama rematch in the College Football Playoff semifinal, the early influential money in Las Vegas is on the Crimson Tide, pushing them to a consensus 2.5-point favorite.

With the latest wave of coaching changes complete in the SEC, that means the rest of the league has now had 43 different head coaches since Nick Saban was hired at Alabama in 2007. All but Georgia, LSU, Missouri and South Carolina have had three different head coaches since Saban arrived. Arkansas and Tennessee lead the way, each with five different head coaches.

Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick doesn't see much of a difference between Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant and former Tigers star Deshaun Watson, who the Tide faced in each of the previous two seasons. "He runs the ball a little bit more than Deshuan," Fitzpatrick said. "They both have strong arms and make good decisions. They don't turn it over."

Unlike the previous two seasons, a national championship won't be on the line when No. 1 Clemson plays No. 4 Alabama in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, but that won't diminish the rematch. "This is the third round," Tide safety Minkah Fitzpatrick said. "It might not be the championship, but it's a championship-caliber game. It's been a heavyweight fight since my freshman season."
