I think Coach Saban enjoyed this last victory a little more than most. You can see it after the Gatorade bath. He may not admit it, but the sweet satisfaction of winning a national championship this year, after being down for the count following the LSU loss last November, is pretty much the highlight of […]

I just finished reading the very first profile in “The Bama Way: Profiles of Champions” by former Alabama team captain Todd Bates. I am loving it! The first profile is about a Alabama legend that I had very little knowledge of, however many of the older generation knew him very well (even if they did […]

After watching two weeks of college football one thing is certain: The defense that is being played out there is terrible. How do you explain scores like this over the weekend: 41-35, 45-42, 35-31.

There was the 1979 goal line stand made famous in the Sugar Bowl that won Alabama the national championship that no one will ever forget, but the two probably still most talked about plays in this rivalry took place in 1983 […]

Unfortunately, its not the 2nd straight national championship bowl game that Alabama will be playing, however they will be playing on New Year’s Day verses a very good one-loss Michigan State team. Obviously, this game will mean something to Coach Nick Saban since he previously coached at Michigan State. I believe Alabama will handily win […]

Oh, it was indeed a scrimmage like atmosphere Thursday night as Alabama brought out the walk-ons to finish off the Georgia State Panthers 63-7. In reality, it was a mismatch of epic proportions. The goal was to simulate as close to a bye week as possible prior to the Iron Bowl, and set our preparations […]

Video below. With the losses of Missouri and Michigan State coming this past weekend, even ESPN this and it is possible for Alabama to get back in the national title game. Granted, it will take winning all of the rest of their games on a tough schedule involving at three out of four top 20 […]

I know I am (..until after they play the Georgia game that is). Why? As unsavory as it may seem, Auburn is in fact #1 in the BCS right now. Alabama needs the farmboys to stay in the top spot to have the computer juice to get to #2 or #1 in the BCS. I […]
