s High Court to stop the teams board from placing him on gardening leave u

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China . -- Nick Saban doesnt want to leave Alabamas fate in the hands of a committee.The top-ranked Crimson Tide certainly is the closest team to a lock at making the College Football Playoffs if it wins out, but the precarious nature of that race was driven home when the rest of the top four teams fell last weekend.Alabama would make the playoffs for a third straight season with wins over FCS team Chattanooga, No. 18 Auburn and in the Southeastern Conference championship game. The Chattanooga game on Saturday seems to offer little risk of an upset, but Saban can use the losses by Michigan, Clemson and Washington to illustrate the added comfort of making the playoff selection committees choice a no-brainer.The message is when you win, you control your own destiny, he said Monday. When you dont, you allow someone else to determine what your fates going to be. We have all these teams that lost one game now. Somebody has to decide who gets to do what.If you put yourself in that situation, you let somebody else decide what your fate is. If you take care of your business and do things the way you need to do it, then maybe you can control your own destiny in the way you play.Alabama, which sports a 22-game winning streak, has already clinched the SEC West title and hasnt shown any signs that a slipup is likely. The Tide has allowed just three points in the last two games, beating No. 16 LSU 10-0 and Mississippi State 51-3 while easily dispatching four ranked opponents in the last five games.An early kickoff for a 51-3 win over Mississippi State gave Tide players a chance to watch other games around the country, including those upsets.Its kind of an eye-opener, center Bradley Bozeman said.Alabama had locked up the West outright by early evening, when Georgia upset No. 18 Auburn.Saban gave the Tide Monday off from practice to recuperate from that SEC stretch before the Iron Bowl. That doesnt mean hes any easier on his players just because the opponent is an FCS team.Hes going to be the same regardless of who were playing, wide receiver ArDarius Stewart said. Thats what makes our team so great. We play to a standard, and he keeps it that way.TIDE NOTE: Quarterback Jalen Hurts is SEC co-offensive player of the week along with LSU tailback Derrius Guice. ... Tailback Bo Scarbrough missed the Mississippi State game with a sprained knee, but Saban said hes OK medically to play once he gets his confidence back up. ... Right guard Alphonse Taylor hasnt played in the last four games after starting four straight, and may not return this season. The senior sustained a concussion in the Arkansas game. I think thats a medical decision, Saban said. I am not assuming that hes going to come back. It would be a bonus if he did. I dont think he will, based on the amount of time that weve had, so its something that were still evaluating but its something that were not counting on.---More AP college football: and . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. .
