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 can visit the UA Athletic Ticket Office at Coleman Coliseum to verify their tickets during regular business hours, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Wednesday. On game day those tickets can be verified beginning at 10:30 a.m. by University officials on Saturday at the stadium by reporting to Gate 3 or Gate 32. Officials will be available at those gates to examine any tickets.
Unfortunately, counterfeit tickets – sold on the Internet and by individuals around the stadium and on campus on game day – can lead to some fans being defrauded. With this in mind, the UA Athletic Ticket Office would like...
BEST OF MAXIM
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.

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...
The hits just keep on coming for Gene Chizik and his program.
As if it wasnt enough that the 2010 BCS national champions are just 3-8 heading into this weekends Iron Bowl against No. 2 Alabama, a Yahoo! Sports report released Wednesday documented an ongoing investigation into the Auburn Tigers football program.

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.
Auburn coach Gene Chizik has declined to ''comment on speculation'' that the NCAA is investigating alleged improprieties involving the football program.
The Birmingham News reported Wednesday that NCAA investigators have interviewed at least one assistant coach and several players this week ahead of the Tigers' game against No. 2 Alabama.
The newspaper, citing...
Jeff Whitaker understands Auburn's situation going into the Iron Bowl. He's aware of the criticism that has been heaped on coach Gene Chizik and that the Tigers are huge underdogs going into the game with No. 2 Alabama.
The Auburn defensive tackle just doesn't need the extra motivation.
''It's Alabama-Auburn. We're not afraid because of your record or...
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.
What jumps out to me when you look at Alabama and Auburn is the turnover margin.
Alabama is plus-12 on the season and Auburn is minus-10. If Auburn is going to have any chance in this game, its going to have to take care of the football. If the Tigers turn it over at all, I think theyre really at an even bigger disadvantage. I dont think they have a chance if they turn it over...
What better way to make fun of your rival than to make a t-shirt and beg them to keep their current coach employed?
