I Thought About It, But Missed Practice
The only reason to go Alabama football practice this morning was to see if Assistant Coach Jeff Stoutland, named in the allegations against Miami, was still with the team.
But if he wasn't did that mean he was already gone?
Perhaps, if he wasn't on the field, it would mean he was cleaning out his desk.
But it might mean he was ill.
Or he might be speaking with compliance.
Or Coach Nick Saban might have told him to disappear while the media was watching, just to see whom Saban could trap.
Of something else.
So I didn't go.
We'll find out soon enough if there is more to the story regarding Stoutland and/or Director of Football Operations Joe Pannunzio, also named in the Miami scandal.
Alabama's workout this morning was to be followed by another this evening, the last day in which there will be two practices in fall camp. Bama will go to Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday for its second and final fall camp scrimmage. The Tide is working towards the September 3 opener against Kent State in Tuscaloosa.
If the two members of the football staff are going to leave, the natural choice to replace Stoutland is the man he replaced. Joe Pendry might be enticed back to the field for a few more months as offensive line coach. Otherwise, it's a tough time to try to find a good football coach.
