Football in Alabama: Nick Saban Says No Depth Chart, Tommy Rees in the Box – Roll ‘Bama Roll

I can’t imagine that this will provoke any reaction.

We typically release a depth map analysis on the Monday before the season opener. Unfortunately, that won’t be the case today as Nick Saban has decided not to release one. His reasoning:
“It causes a lot of distraction on our team,” Saban said. “It makes a lot of people think, ‘Well, this guy won the job, now I can’t play,’ or whatever, and honestly, we don’t need that.”
According to reporters and athletics department staff who cover or work for the SEC’s other 13 schools, Alabama will be one of only three teams not to release depth charts before game day. The Crimson Tide joins LSU and Texas A&M.
It’s quite interesting that this year he decides not to release anything. Is the QB situation still unclear, or is he just not making the pecking order public, leaving Texas coach Steve Sarkisian without a head start on the Week 2 schedule?
Based on previous conversations, I am sure that any response to the following questions will be appropriate.
We’re officially doomed or something. Maybe O’Brien left some fire trucks in there for them to play with.
Six more days, folks.
