NEW ORLEANS -- Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart rarely speaks with reporters, but when he does, he usually doesn't hold back much.

During a Monday news conference for the Sugar Bowl, Smart used the word “frustrating” when describing the Crimson Tide’s cornerback situation. Smart was asked if he’s ever been through an entire season without settling one of the cornerback spots, and like always, Smart was frank with his response.

“Well, we have not had that. We are not used to that,” he said. “We’ve kind of always had one key guy with all the first-round, second-round corners we’ve had. We’ve always had a staple guy there, then kind of an understudy that was the other one who was an up-and-coming corner. Hasn’t been that way this year.”
