Adrian Peterson is running towards history.

AP is having an MVP type year and is making a run toward history.
Adrian needs 208 yards today to break the NFL's season rushing record of 2,105 yards set by Eric Dickerson in 1984.
Adrian needs 102 yards to break the coveted 2000 yard rushing mark.
If the Vikings win and get in the playoffs, it may be enough to put him ahead of  Peyton Manning in the NFL's most valuable player award and he certainly would deserve it.

The Vikings play the Green Bay Packers and if they win they will get a wildcard into the playoffs.
That being said lets face it,does anyone think that Minnesota is a playoff team without Adrain "AP" Peterson, I don't think so.
AP also should win the comeback player of the year award as well but the NFL is known as being a quarterbacks league and again Peyton Manning could get that award too, I really think it depends on whether The Vikings make the playoffs, if they win I don't know how any voter could deny that Adrain is the MVP and comeback player of the year.
But what do I know I'm just a blogger.
Thanks for reading.

AJ McCarron to return to Alabama for senior season

AJ McCarron is going to return to Alabama for his senior season.
He has decided to not enter the NFL draft this year and return to Alabama for another year.
McCarron who is a native of Mobile,Ala leads the nation in passing efficiency heading into the BCS title game against Notre Dame.
His 36 touchdowns sets the tides single season record as he passed for 2,699 yards with only 3 interceptions.

Coach Saban said he was happy that AJ decided to return saying "He has done a great job for us not only as a quarterback and player but as a leader of our team. Like I have said before we want players to make sound decisions on what is best for their future.Our goal at Alabama is to help our guys develop a career off the field by graduating,becoming the best football player while they are here, and to try to win a championship while preparing them for the possibility of playing in the NFL."

AJ said " I want to help our team win football games and to continue to improve as a quarterback,The NFL has long been a dream but I think another year at Alabama can only help my chances of being successful at the next level."

Nick Saban rumors

With the need for NFL head coaches at a record high, Nick Saban  has been mentioned a lot recently.
I don't think Nick will leave the University of Alabama.
I mean he has a fan following similar to the legendary Paul "The Bear" Bryant and if we win the BCS national Championship this year many people will say he is Alabama's best coach ever.

He seems to be very happy at Alabama and I think he will retire from UA.
He is well paid and loved.
He is competing every year for a SEC and BCS championship.
I would be shocked and disappointed if Nick decided to leave Alabama and so would all of The University of Alabama fans.

He already has won the Maxwell and Walter Camp player of the year awards.

Butch Jones named coach at Tennessee

Butch Jones said " I am very fortunate to be your head coach" during his first news conference Friday afternoon. It seemed surreal to Butch after the whirlwind week he had.
He stood at a podium at Neyland stadium's Peyton Manning locker room, telling a story about how Manning a legend at UT, had tried to convince him to come and coach at Colorado.

Tennessee has been looking for a coach for over 3 weeks after the firing of Derek Dooley, according to UT's athletic director Dave Hart, Jon Gruden just didn't show any interest in the job,but we are very happy to have Butch, "he has a track record of success at every program he has led, and views Tennessee as the job he has coveted.We look forward to Butch leading our football program back to prominence.

Butch Jones said "it is truly an honor and a privilege to be the head coach at Tennessee,I understand the values,traditions and the level of expectations that come with this position and I look forward to be a part of the Vol nation."
