It has been no secret that fans who are surveyed in the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll have shown a strong preference toward the Alabama Crimson Tide throughout the 2012 college football season. Alabama has dominated the fans’ poll, as well as the BCS Standings, throughout the majority of the season. They never fell too far in the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll, even when they dropped to No. 4 in the BCS Standings after losing their only game of the year at home to the Texas A&M Aggies a few weeks ago. The Tide roll into this week as the No. 2 in both polls, but the fans still give them the best chance to win the BCS Championship this year, even ahead of the No. 1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Notre Dame is No. 1 in both the latest results of the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll as well as the BCS Standings. Yet while fans still may feel as if Notre Dame is the No. 1 team as things stand right now, they still feel as if Alabama is the best team in the nation, and will be after the BCS Championship ...

Senior guard Chance Warmack has been a three-year starter on a Crimson Tide team that has achieved a school record 47-5 record over the last four seasons. The Westlake (Atlanta, GA) High School product and fellow Alabama (11-1-0, 7-1) linemen cleared the way for 267 yards rushing in the crushing 49-0 victory over intrastate archrival and SEC Western Division opponent Auburn (3-9-0, 0-8).
The No. 2 Crimson Tide scored seven touchdowns on seven possessions and handed Auburn its eighth conference loss of the season. Alabama now moves on to face Georgia in the SEC championship game next week.
It is not unexpected when Trevor Releford has a big night in an Alabama basketball win, and Releford was excellent with 22 points and six assists in the Crimson Tide’s 59-46 win over Charleston Southern Friday night in Coleman Coliseum. It was a surprise, though, that junior center Carl Engstrom, getting only his second career start, was instrumental in the Bama win.
It may seem that Alabama and Auburn football teams don’t have much in common as they approach the end of the regular season with a game at Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday. The Crimson Tide is having an excellent season, while the Tigers are limping to the finish line.
When Alabama Coach Nick Saban gave his Wednesday press briefing, he took time to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and urged all to take note of the many blessings we have. He was speaking to everyone on this celebration that is unique to our nation.
The No. 2 Crimson Tide scored seven touchdowns on seven possessions and handed Auburn its ninth loss of the season. Alabama now looks forward to facing Georgia in the SEC championship game next week.
Although Alabama Coach Nick Saban is a proponent of “the process,” it doesn’t mean he doesn’t have goals, and he has said on more than one occasion that the Southeastern Conference championship is a desired result. (We get it that the process is what makes the result.)
