Bama QB Mac Jones Ready to See Tide Roll in Pandemic


Bama quarterback Mac Jones is ready to see the Tide roll this fall.
He wants to hit the field despite the Covid pandemic.

Said Jones:”at the end of the day, the players are the ones playing. We feel safe here. We feel comfortable. Obviously there’s a lot of unknowns, but we just wanted to get our voice out there. Obviously we had a lot of guys that could have left last year, and they came back. So we want to play for those guys. We want to play for the younger teammates. We want to play for the whole organization. The state of Alabama.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
