Bama fans can rest easy about the 2024 football season. The NFL can wait.

Heisman contender Jalen Milroe is returning to lead the Tide for his redshirt junior year. He said as much Thursday on the Next Round Live podcast with Jim Dunaway, Ryan Brown and Lance Taylor.

Said Milroe when queried about his future: "Yeah I'm coming back for my [football] senior year. {He is set to graduate Saturday, by the way.]

"LANK is still there. We're going to use it. Whey do we play Wiscnsin? I know i's cold there."


["LANK" stands for "Let All Naysayers Know," which is certainly something Milroe has done this season.]

Regarding the upcoming Michigan game, Milroe said, "You've got to recognize they're undefeated. Great challenge for us. We'll hold up four [fingers] for four quarters. We've got to play hard for 60 minutes."

Considered by those in Vegas to be the early favorite for the 2024 Heisman, Milroe added that he celebrated his 21st birthday Wednesday by gettting a first-time helicopter view of Bryant-Denny Stadium as part of his NIL deal with Birmingham business Crane Works.
