When Toledo coach Matt Campbell left for Iowa State in November 2015, uncertainty took over the Rockets program. Amid the ensuing fog of chaos, Toledo quarterback Logan Woodside and four other Rocket players went to athletic director Mike O’Brien with a plea – hire offensive coordinator Jason Candle. For Woodside, the visit to the athletic director’s office came at a critical juncture in his career.

South Carolina offensive line coach Eric Wolford knew when he was hired that his job was to toughen up his players and improve the Gamecocks offensive numbers. The Gamecocks were next-to-last in Southeastern Conference rushing and last in the league in sacks allowed - both areas where the offensive line gets most of the blame. ''There was a concern with our overall athletic ability when you look at the matchups we have week in and week out,'' Wolford said about watching tape of last year's lack of production.

Rolando McClain, Donta Hightower, Nico Johnson, C.J. Mosley, Reggie Ragland, Reuben Foster. All names that went on to be drafted into the NFL, 4 first rounders, a second rounder, and a 4th. Over the years, the middle linebackers have always been the heart of Nick Saban’s Alabama defenses. Early on with McClain and Hightower, they set the tone with monstrous strength and intimidation in the middle, stymieing any run game and punishing receivers over the middle. With time, C.J. Mosley and Reuben Foster reflected the Tide’s adaptation to more modern offensive philosophies, as both played below 230 pounds and were much more akin to missiles screaming across the field than big bombs in the heart of

There were two fluky touchdowns during Alabama's scrimmage on Saturday. DeVonta Smith was part of both. On one, the four-star freshman wide receiver caught a pass after it had been tipped into the air by cornerback Trevon Diggs before running the rest of the way for a touchdown. On the other play, freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw a pass to Smith in the back of the end zone. Safety Hootie Jones was in front of Smith and tipped the ball with his right hand. But it bounced right to Smith, who secured the catch for a touchdown before stepping out of bounds.
