Alabama Not Sharing Secret ... Ingredients

The most closely guarded secret around the Alabama Crimson Tide this season has nothing to do with personnel, injuries, depth charts or playcalling.

Alabama and Oklahoma had media day Thursday for the Orange Bowl Thuin Miami Gardens, Florida, while Clemson and Notre Dame held court for the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas. But one of the burning questions this season for the Crimson Tide has been about burgers.

Every Thursday night this season, Tide offensive coordinator Mike Locksley —who'll be taking over as head coach at Maryland when Alabama's run in the College Football Playoff ends— had offensive players over to his Tuscaloosa home to watch whatever college game was on television and to eat some burgers off his grill.

The crowd of players grew as the season went along, given the quality of Locksley's recipe.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa says he doesn't know what Locksley puts in the burgers. "That's a good question to go ask him.," the QB says. "That's a really good question."

So the question was posed to Locksley, who responds with: "Can't tell you that. It's the dry rub. They all want the recipe for that, but I won't give it to them."
