On Alabama prospects: "I'm never a big believer that you knock a kid on past performance, or raise a kid on past performance. But I will tell you this: I find myself looking at the Alabama kids, and feeling like I know what I'm getting with them. I know that they're being coached hard, they're playing against SEC competition every year, and I kind of look at the Alabama kids, and I go, 'OK.' I'm almost unconsciously placing them higher because I know what kind of performance I'm going to get from them. So, I'm in effect rewarding them for where they went to school."
