Alabama learned a lesson two weeks ago when it lost to Texas A&M--don't overlook your opponent. This week the Crimson Tide must focus on Auburn and block out what could happen in the aftermath of a win--trips to the SEC and national championships.

I’m sure everyone will be rushing out to buy this football at their local Walmart.
Quality control sure isn’t what is used to be.

Alabama head football coach Nick Saban's press conference this week included one of those simple little questions that Saban responds with an answer several times more complex. The query this time around? Whether or Saban enjoys the Iron Bowl week lead up to the annual rivalry game against Auburn?

The University of Alabama is looking forward to hosting another sellout crowd when the Crimson Tide football team hosts the Auburn Tigers on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and the UA Athletic Ticket Office wishes to remind fans of the potential danger of being sold counterfeit tickets at Tide home games.
If fans have any doubt about the validity of their tickets, they...
After the Alabama Crimson Tide lost their first game of the 2012 college football season, I wrote that it would be foolish and even a bit ignorant to count them out of the BCS Championship after that one loss. That game dropped them to No. 4 in the BCS Standings, but I cautioned that there was still plenty of time for the tide to change for Alabama.
Yes, I used that same pun in that...
Each week the Alabama coaching staff selects players of the week from the previous game. The Crimson Tide had a relatively easy time of it last Saturday with a 49-0 win over Western Carolina and starters did not get a lot of playing time. The Bama coaches took note of the men in the trenches for most of the honors.
The Crimson Tide's defense, which has struggled in its last two SEC games, hopes to make Auburn's true freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace's first experience in Bryant-Denny Stadium an unpleasant one.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama players don't even have to leave their couches to be one of the big winners in college football's national championship sweepstakes.
The second-ranked Crimson Tide (10-1, 7-0 Southeastern Conference) has benefited the past two years from a pair of late-season upsets by other teams, proving that patience is sometimes as important as perfection...
He may not be Denard Robinson or Johnny Manziel, but Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron can run the ball if he has to, and he's given a glimpse of his ability to do so over the past three weeks.
At his weekly Monday press conference, Alabama head coach Nick Saban made it clear he didn't want to discuss anything--aka, Kansas State, Oregon, the BCS--except Auburn.
Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones is comfortable in crimson. Students in elementary, junior high, and high schools across the state of Alabama are familiar with “Spirit Day.” That’s when the students dress in the colors of their favorite team.
Cornerback John Fulton (turf toe) looked back to his old self at Alabama's practice Tuesday afternoon. Watch a video of him and the rest of the Alabama defensive backs inside...
