RunInRed 12,159 Posted April 8, 2015 Share Posted April 8, 2015 A good interview ... Lance Thompson's decision to leave Alabama for Auburn sent ripples across the college football landscape, in part because the shift is so rare.... "It's just the nature of the business," Thompson said. "People on the outside look at it and see different things, but I think on the inside, the parties involved, everybody understands why I made the decision and why it was a good decision for me." ... "Some personal things there (in Tuscaloosa), but at the end of the day, it was an opportunity to grow professionally," Thompson said. "Obviously, Nick's a great coach, he's done a great job at Alabama, Alabama's a good program. I've got nothing bad to say about them." ... "A lot of people said we had the best defensive players and the best defensive staff in the country (at Alabama)," Thompson said. "He (Malzahn) hung 630 yards on us and 44 points, and that was very humbling. They did a great job over there on the defensive side of the ball; this guy has always been really difficult to defend." ... "I really like what he stands for, the way he is as a man, the way he treats people," Thompson said. "Obviously, working for Will in the past with all the things that Will's accomplished as a defensive coach, it's always good to be with people like that. So it was a good opportunity." ... "When I recruit, I just offer kids opportunities," Thompson said. "I kind of share my own story of how ball gave me a chance to go get an education and build a network that you'll have for the rest of your life. That's kind of the way I approach it." http://www.al.com/sp..._lance_tho.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
