It’s not the first time Arians has shot down speculation about his future plans.
After a similar report surfaced in October, Arians tweeted, Hearing reports I’m retiring. News to me. Nothing could be further from truth…
Arians has a respectable 48-30-1 mark in five seasons in Phoenix, but has said he still wants a Super Bowl championship. The Cardinals (7-8) haven’t lived up to expectations this season, but in fairness, the team has been beset by injuries. All-Pro running back David Johnson was lost for the season to injury in Week 1 and quarterback Carson Palmer, whose future is also uncertain, went out at midseason. Several key defensive players are on IR.
So Arians has reason to be optimistic if he returns in 2018. He says he still loves the job.
Sure, it was quite a contrast to the first two meetings in the Alabama-Clemson trilogy, both high-scoring classics with the national title on the line , not to mention the Rose Bowl semifinal that preceded it. Georgia knocked off Oklahoma 54-48 in a double-overtime thriller that wasn’t decided until the Alabama was on its second possession in the Big Easy.
There would be no drama in the nightcap. With Deshaun Watson off to the NFL, top-ranked Clemson (12-2) simply had no answer for the Tide’s latest group of defensive standouts, setting up an all-Southeastern Conference showdown for the national title — with Saban matched against his former defensive coordinator, Georgia coach Kirby Smart.
Blackson also indicated that he is hoping his brother will cut out his mother before she completely kills his NFL career.
He’s healthy at last — and it showed immediately.
Kerr had hoped to play his star 20-25 minutes, and Curry hit another 3 just 30 seconds after conferring with the coaching staff during that timeout with 4:36 left in the third.
Everything just looks better, Kerr said. The food in there is going to taste better tonight. My wife’s going to be even better looking than she already is. My kids are going to be happy. Steph, he has that impact.
