EVERY COACH CLAIMS to have a great national signing day. Nick Saban actually does - every year. By lunchtime yesterday, the Alabama coach had most of his latest highly rated recruiting class locked up. "He's the best at [recruiting] in the country," said Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network. "Over the last 5 years, nobody has been better at it than Nick Saban. " The national signing period for high school football players opened with the usual plethora of pick-a-cap news conferences and a few high-profile flip-flops.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Nick Saban says there's no magic formula to winning big games. Saban and second-ranked Alabama are gearing up for Saturday night's visit from No. 1 Louisiana State, with the winner keeping an inside track to the national championship bowl. Saban says big games typically come down to execution and turnovers. The Tigers are seeking their first 9-0 start since 1973 in the much-hyped game. Both teams had open dates last weekend to extend the buildup and each have won a national title over the last five years.

Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban needed another day to consider a job offer from the University of Alabama. Saban met with Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga at the team complex for 10 minutes yesterday and asked for more time to decide. "The meeting went good," Huizenga said. "We had a quick meeting. We had a nice conversation. Coach asked if we could defer the decision until 10 o'clock [this morning]. And then he went into several reasons as to why he wanted to do that. I agree 100 percent with his reasons.

USC FOOTBALL COACH Lane Kiffin was fired early yesterday morning. Hours later, Vegas already had odds on who would replace him.

Ed Marynowitz is Chip Kelly's handpicked personnel assistant and reports to the head coach, but the Eagles' new vice president of player personnel said he will not be Kelly's "yes man" in his new post. "I'm never one to agree just to agree," Marynowitz said Thursday is his first public comments since he was promoted Jan. 29. "To support the head coach, I don't believe that's to tell him that he's right in everything that he says. You're not going to disagree to disagree, either. But I'm not going be afraid to voice my opinion.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The defensive units of Louisiana State and Alabama seem to have it all: talent, cool nicknames, star power, and loads of speed. Many say they are mirror images of each other - twins but not identical. The two dominate with different styles; LSU starts with speed, Alabama with size. The defenses - Alabama led by Dont'a "Zeus" Hightower, LSU by Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu - have propelled the top-ranked Tigers and the No. 2 Crimson Tide into Saturday's night clash of unbeatens.

Jay Cutler finished one of the best statistical seasons of his career on Sunday. It came in the Chicago Bears quarterback's first year working with offensive coordinator Adam Gase. He went to a Monday news conference with a request for Chicago reporters. "I was going to ask you guys today if you could write some bad articles about him," Cutler joked. "Maybe we can cool him off some, but I don't see that happening. " Cutler alluded to Gase's popularity regarding head coaching vacancies.

Ed Marynowitz, the handpicked choice of Chip Kelly to oversee the Eagles' personnel operation, has an impressive list of former bosses who have helped form his football philosophy and prepare him for the job at hand. Marynowitz is just 31 years old and has been working in the game for only 10 years, so the way he gained that experience has almost a speed-dating quality to it. His longest stint in one job was the four years and three full seasons he spent as the director of player personnel at Alabama under legendarily demanding coach Nick Saban, whom one former assistant referred to as "the devil himself.

IN THE SUMMER of 2001, Dave Dunn was a first-year head football coach at Paul II High School in Boca Raton, Fla., when he got a notice from his homeowners' association: His roof was dirty and moldy. He needed to power wash it. So at preseason practice, Dunn asked his players if anybody wanted to make some money. Ed Marynowitz, Dunn's senior projected starting quarterback, jumped at the opportunity. "I said, 'Hey, we can make that happen for you,' " Marynowitz, now the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, recalled yesterday, at the end of several rounds of interviews held in anticipation of the April 30 start of the NFL draft.

Over all those sultry training-camp afternoons in Tuscaloosa, all those midseason practices to prepare for Auburn or Florida or another SEC power, all those pro days for the dozens of prospective draft picks that Alabama produced, Greg McElroy could never get over the way so many NFL scouts listened so closely to Ed Marynowitz. "It was captivating how many people went out of their way not only to say hello, but also talk to him with notepads out," McElroy, who quarterbacked the Crimson Tide to a national championship in 2009, said in a phone interview.

ONE OF THE interesting aspects of the reported rift between Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and coach Chip Kelly is that it is Roseman who is generally credited with continuing the pursuit of Kelly after he originally turned down the Eagles' overtures 2 years ago. The Eagles, you may recall, had a carousel of coaches either interview for the job or turn down similar overtures - Gus Bradley, Doug Marrone and Bill O'Brien, then a coach at Penn State,...

SO WHAT DO we know about this Alabama team, really? Well, it's taken three games, but, for starters, we can finally say that Blake Sims is the No. 1 quarterback for the third-ranked Crimson Tide. And you were thinking junior Jake Coker, who transferred in after graduating from Florida State in May, would be AJ McCarron's successor. The same guy who supposedly nearly beat out Jameis Winston for the FSU job in the spring of 2013. But Sims, a senior who was the backup the last two seasons after getting carries as a running back in 2011, apparently wasn't ready to accept that role forever.

INDIANAPOLIS - Louisville played two Thursday night games this season. Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix watched on television, focusing on Cardinals safety Calvin Pryor. Clinton-Dix developed a respect for Pryor's ability, and the two met for the first time Sunday afternoon at the NFL combine. They will be linked often during the next three months, and maybe long thereafter. Although opinions differ about which one is better, Pryor and Clinton-Dix are the top two safety prospects in May's NFL draft.
