NEW ORLEANS – Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt knew the questions were coming, so he laid the groundwork in his opening statement to the media on Friday morning.

“I just want to say this: I’m excited about being the head football coach at Tennessee,” he said. “It’s a tremendous opportunity, a great university and I’m thankful to have it. But right now I’m working as a defensive coordinator at Alabama and I’d like for these questions to be targeted toward this game and the players that are associated with this game.”

It’s been a whirlwind tour for Gene Stallings this fall.

The College Football Hall of Fame coach was honored by Texas A&M with an assembly of the 1967 team during the Aggies’ game with Alabama, by Alabama with an assembly of the 1992 team during the Crimson Tide’s game with Arkansas, by the Southeastern Conference as part of their annual legends’ recognition at the SEC Championship Game and he will be honored in two weeks as part of the inaugural class for the Sugar Bowl Hall of Fame.

Might as well make a stop in Montgomery, where Stallings was presented the fourth Regions Bank Alabama Football Legend Award on Friday afternoon by Regions president Michael Hart and Camellia Bowl executive director Johnny Williams during a luncheon at the Renaissance Hotel.
