    Joe Tessitore and Todd Blackledge will call the Allstate Sugar Bowl, with Holly Rowe reporting from the sidelines. This is trio’s second consecutive year calling a semifinal as a group and, for Blackledge and Rowe, their fourth consecutive year working a semifinal. Laura Rutledge will join the telecast as well.

    Tennessee still hammering out final details with Jeremy Pruitt, but both sides expect him to be officially announced as the Vols' head coach on Thursday. I'm also told the plan is for him to pull double duty and stay on as Alabama's DC through the College Football Playoff.

    What is the line they put in their contracts that make them want to stay on at their old job?

    Now I dont understand how this will work this time. With Kiffin, he was at least going to a team that wouldn't compete with Bama on the field or the recruiting trail. UT is a direct rival and recruiting battle down the stretch possibly. Hell Pruitt would be dumb to NOT try and flip 1 or 2 if he has strong connections via his role at Bama. I bet this either changes OR this is some reporter assuming that because it happened with Lane, it'll happen again.

    But didn't Kirby Smart do the same thing in 2015?

    I feel like this does not happen anywhere else. If you get hired to be the fucking HEAD COACH of ANY another team, much less a conference rival, then once you sign that contract, that University deserves your full attention and effort. There's no lack of work to be done in that program that should be started immediately.

    Conversely, if I'm Saban and Alabama, if you're going to coach my defense through the cfp, then I deserve 100% of your attention and effort.

    How EITHER UT or Bama agrees to this is completely beyond me.

    Bama had already named Pruitt as DC then though.

    I hope Pruitt goes ahead and leaves and Saban calls the plays in the sugar bowl.

    Weren't they pissed at Kiffin after how their gameplan looked against Washington and that's why they told him to go ahead and gtfo? Do they think that hick Pruitt is above mailing it in like Kiffin did?

    Whether he leaves or stays, there's no way this is a bad thing for us.

    With regards to the overall health of Alabama's team how healthy will they be able to get by our game? I know they had a number of key injuries, some of which were season ending on defense but how much does not playing again between Nov 25 and Jan 1 help them? I'm just curious because the Bama team I watched coming down the stretch wasn't as impressive compared to recent years but can we expect them to look a lot different on Jan 1?

    I believe they've had some linebackers that have been injured since the FSU game that they will be getting back.

    I know they get Christian Miller, of annoying dad in Columbia fame, back. He was expected to be one of their best pass rushers this season. Terrell Lewis as well.

    Shaun Dion Hamilton and Mack Wilson will still be out. Edit: Guess I was wrong about Wilson, his injury against LSU was originally listed as season ending though.

    They claim all but 1 lb will be back. They'll be close to full strength.

    Hamilton is probably the most important to their run defense.
