Herschel Walker  joined Paul Finebaum today and talked about some of college football’s hottest topics.

The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner gave very candid answers to questions about  suspended University of Georgia running back, Todd Gurley, and not yet to be suspended Florida State quarterback, Jameis Winston.

Like Gurley, Walker played running back for the University of Georgia, where he was a three-time All-American and winner of the Maxwell Award.

“I know Jameis Winston…  is a young man who needs some guidance.  He’s a young man who needs someone to sit down and talk to him.” – Herschel Walker

We’ll pick up the conversation where it began after an aborted attempt to speak with Finebaum due to a bad phone connection:

Nick Saban At Kent State

Nick Saban At Kent State

By Finebaum Fan.

In his weekly appearance on “Hey Coach”, Alabama Coach Nick Saban revealed that he had experienced the same injury that Alabama running back, Kenyan Drake, sustained in the October 4th game against The University of Mississippi.

Drake suffered a horrible leg injury in the second quarter against Ole Miss. During a tangled pileup, his left ankle twisted violently and he shouted so loudly that his voice was audible on CBS’ broadcast.

Saban played defensive back for the Kent State University football team under coach Don James.

Said Saban, “When I was a player in college, I got the SAME injury as he (Kenyan Drake) had…”

Here’s the audio with an update on Drake’s condition:

Was this a shot at Alabama Coach Nick Saban?

“Well I think there’s some coaches that have a hidden agenda. They want to slow the game down. They think fast-paced offense is leading to more injuries. There’s no evidence at all that says that. I just think they don’t want to evolve the game. People enjoy the game. They want to see action. They don’t want to see huddles or people holding hands or singing ‘Cumbaya.’”

The day after his interview with James Franklin went viral around the college football world, ESPN radio host, Paul Finebaum, took time on air to reflect on it with his audience.

Franklin, head football coach at Penn State, has been criticized for “poaching” five recruits who had committed to Vanderbilt – a practice popularly known as “flipping recruits”.

Finebaum began the show with an analysis of the interview.

“That was not something I was in the weeds waiting for.  I’ve been friends with James Franklin for a while.”

“I’ve been a fan of his for a long time.  I think my record is pretty public on that. This isn’t a coach that I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into.”

He went on to elaborate on the thoughts he had during the interview.

“I was expecting James Franklin, the person I know and have great respect for, to give an honest answer.”

“I just felt like I needed to try to get an answer because he went into ‘coach speak'”.

“That’s all there was to it… But I just felt like I needed to explain that.”

“I’ve always liked him. Yesterday’s interview didn’t change any of that.  I just felt like he gave a really bad answer…”

Franklin appeared on the Dan Patrick Show in January to discuss recruiting etiquette and his reasoning for flipping Vanderbilt commits to Penn State.

Auburn High School’s Rashaan Evans shocked the college football world by choosing The University of Alabama over hometown Auburn University – and it only took “a second”.

Evans is a fast five-star linebacker who is expected to assist the Tide in slowing the quicker “spread-type offenses” which have become more dominate in the SEC.

Here’s what “Twitterverse” has to say about it:
