Good news for Nick Saban

Apparently Jimbo Fisher didn”t go to Florida State, after all. This from The Advocate”s (the Baton Rouge daily, not the national gay newspaper) SEC spring football capsules this morning:

Starts: Feb. 26.
Spring game: March 24.
Last season’s record: 11-2.

LSU’s offense is in the midst of a makeover following the early departure of QB JaMarcus Russell and two of his best receivers. QB Matt Flynn, who’ll be a senior, is the projected starter, with sophomore Ryan Perrilloux backing up. New offensive coordinator Gary Crowton, hired when Jimbo Fisher left for Alabama, is expected to implement some spread-option looks. The Tigers’ are also looking for two new starters at safety and on the defensive line. Some of those spots might not be set until late summer, after several highly rated recruits have had a chance to suit up in August.

So well done, Nick.
