— Defensive coordinator Vic Koenning (Clemson) raised some eyebrows when asked a general question about Alabama receiver Julio Jones. Koenning has a lot of ties in south Alabama, and that’s where Jones is from.
“I actually ran into Julio in the spring recruiting. I said hello to him. I said, ‘Well, I guess Iâ€™ll be seeing you at the end of August.’ And then he got out and got in his Escalade and drove off. Thatâ€™s serious. And then I went over and watched (Alabama freshman) Burton Scott at Vigor High School at the track over there, and Burton Scott was running around. He went and got in his Escalade out at track practice and drove off. So Iâ€™m familiar with those two guys.”
Wow. Ouch. Wow.
Think that might cause a stir in Tuscaloosa?
