Alabama head coach Nick Saban demands a lot from his players and expects that they’ll be prepared both mentally and physically come game day. The guys over at The Weather Channel have taken notice. Check out this hilarious conversation between whoever runs TWC’s Twitter account and SBNation’s Spencer Hall from late last night.
It appears that Saban really wants to gain every advantage possible.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban has not won three of the past four BCS National Championship Games by paying attention to distractions. Anything that is not directly related to football is a distraction, including AJ McCarron’s all-American smile on the latest cover of Sports Illustrated. On Wednesday, a reporter made the mistake of asking Saban […]
Do you take Nick Saban for the type of person who reads magazines? If you do, don’t ever tell him, because he apparently doesn’t have the time of day for reading a few articles, and he gets offended if you think he does. Tonight a reporter asked Saban what he thought of AJ McCarron’s new cover on this week’s Sports Illustrated, and Nick was not pleased. His response was...
Alabama’s game against Chattanooga earlier Saturday afternoon was a bit of a snoozer – the Tide blanked the Mocs, 49-0, in its final tuneup before the Iron Bowl matchup against Auburn next week. But there was one significant moment during the affair, at least for the McCarron family. Quarterback A.J. completed a pass to his brother, Corey, in the third quarter of the contest...
Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban was asked about AJ McCarron’s appearance on Sports Illustrated this week and his response was utterly priceless. Classic Saban.
AJ McCarron almost certainly will finish the day with more wins than any other Alabama quarterback. C.J. Mosley is probably on his way to becoming a two-time All-America linebacker.
Those two and six other senior starters - and possibly a few underclassmen - will play their final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday against Chattanooga. It might be the only piece of drama in a...
The Alabama football program has reportedly fired its assistant strength and conditioning coach, according to The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News.
Corey Harris, who had been serving an indefinite suspension for his apparent involvement in the Ha Ha Clinton-Dix ordeal providing impermissible benefits to the junior was apparently dropped from the program, prior to the Crimson Tide's...
Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban believes that the Florida State Seminoles is arguably the best team in the nation right now.
The assistant strength and conditioning coach who reportedly gave Alabama safety HaHa Clinton-Dix a short-term loan is no longer employed by the university.
Alabama spokesman Doug Walker said Saturday that Corey Harris ''is no longer on the staff.'' He couldn't elaborate because it is a personnel issue.
Clinton-Dix was suspended in October and missed the Kentucky...
As you’d imagine, tickets for the Auburn vs. Alabama football game next Saturday are hard to come by (or out of most fans’ price range). AU’s miracle victory over Georgia this past weekend results in a winner-take-all battle between the Tigers and the Tide for the SEC West and a spot in the SEC Championship Game. In what’s sure to be regarded as a thoughtful move, the school...
The same week noted Alabama Football beat writer Kevin Scarbinski tweeted,
“Call me crazy, but seriously, why not Alabama’s C.J. Mosley for Heisman?” http://t.co/x9nsedlszN

the senior linebacker was named one of five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and one of four finalists for the Rotary Lombardi Award.
AJ McCarron passed for two touchdowns and became No. 1 Alabama's winningest quarterback in Saturday's 49-0 victory over Chattanooga.
McCarron completed 13 of 16 passes for 171 yards before leaving one drive into the second half of his final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the Crimson Tide (11-0). He improved to 36-2 as a starter, breaking a tie with Jay Barker for the school...
Alabama last hosted Josh Frazier for the showdown with LSU earlier in November, and he may have been leaning towards the Crimson Tide ever since. He announced his intentions to sign with the No. 1 program in America on Saturday evening.
When Kevin Norwood pulled in a 28-yard touchdown pass from fellow senior AJ McCarron to end the third quarter of Alabama’s 49-0 win over Chattanooga, it marked the fourth consecutive game Norwood had scored. He now has 11 career touchdowns, six this season.
There’s the old joke about how a team won with the kicking game. “We kicked their ass.” Alabama won in every phase of the game Saturday as the Crimson Tide pasted Chattanooga, 49-0, in the final home game of the season. Alabama didn’t punt and Alabama didn’t try a field goal, and yet the game had its moments in the kicking game.
ESPN has made it official – the College GameDay crew will be heading to Auburn next Saturday ahead of the Iron Bowl, the annual matchup between the Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Given the magnitude of the game this year, the decision was a no-brainer for the Worldwide Leader.
