Quick Hits: Saban, Kiffin, Tedford, Richt, Miles

Nick Saban talks grayshirting and oversigning: "We have never, ever grayshirted a guy here who when he decided to come here didn't know ... that he was going to be a grayshirt whenever he committed." 

"Any player that has left this program prematurely has created his own exit route. He's created his own conditions for leaving, if that makes any sense, whether they're academic in terms of not doing what he needs to do academically, whether there's some violation in terms of team rule or policy, whatever it is. Some of these things we're not allowed to comment on.

Lane Kiffin: “We were able to add 30 players to our roster, with the possibility of more soon to come.” 

“One of these years we’re going to be done at this time (7:30 pm) and we’ll be able to go home.”

Jeff Tedford: "This is the best class of defensive linemen, from top-to-bottom, that we've ever assembled."

Mark Richt: "We all know our season wasn't the best and there have been a lot of things that we've had to battle maybe a little bit more than other years when it comes to recruiting. I really believe that this class will end up being the largest and most talented and the best bunch in the 11 years now."

Les Miles: "I don't really care if it's ranked in the top 10 or not, it fits what we need. You'll not know for some time how good a class this really is, but coming in behind last year's class ... we think this will allow us to compete for conference honors — if we are fortunate to win our conference, the opportunity to compete for national honors."
