Now that Savage has released some of his book, the details are starting to emerge. The article is in the next post.

Of note here. The receiver that had the ball hit his hip? Foster. I've mentioned there was a "disconnect" between Kiffin and Foster last season. Here's a great example of such.

3. Cooper Bateman's starting nod vs. Ole Miss in 2015 is (kind of) explained

The 2015 Ole Miss game is an outlier in Alabama's 2015 national championship season, and not just because the Crimson Tide lost for the only time that year.

You could tell there had been friction between the two. Following the Georgia game, Saban made it a point to go congratulate Coker on the game before going to midfield. I'm not a great lip reader, but Coker didn't seem to think much of it.
