Bama's Dial destroys UGA's Murray with block

Alabama defender Quinton Dial delivered a vicious helmet to helmet hit on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray late in the second quarter. The hit came after Murray threw an interception and was returned by Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix to the Georgia 47. The Crimson Tide would score a field goal on the drive following the hit, entering half time with a 10-7 lead.

Alabama fan gets an intense tattoo

An Alabama Crimson Tide fan got this pretty intense tattoo of Mark Ingram from a moment in the 2009 BCS National Championship Game against the Texas Longhorns. Mark Ingram ran the ball into the end zone and looked right into the cameras. He stared at them and held up his Nike Pro Combat gloves to form the Crimson Tide “A.” This is one of the most intense tattoos we’ve ever...

Alabama, Notre Dame to play for BCS title

Alabama vs. Notre Dame. The BCS championship game couldn't get much bigger. The Crimson Tide locked up a spot in the title game in Miami on Jan. 7 with a 32-28 victory over Georgia in the SEC championship game Saturday. Now the hype can begin for what could be the most-watched BCS title game since the system was implemented in 1998. It'd be hard to find two more popular...

Georgia QB Aaron Murray is leveled by Alabama’s Quinton Dial

Nothing has to be worse than throwing a horrific interception directly to Ha’Sean Clinton-Dixon and then getting absolutely leveled by a massive Alabama defensive tackle.  This hit was definitely helmet to helmet, but it wasn’t as much of a blindside hit as you might think.  If you look closely, Murray sees Dial at the very last second, but unfortunately for him it was too...

Alabama Wins SEC Crown, Will Get Shot At A Repeat BCS National Title

Alabama will get its shot at BCS history. For the first time since Ohio State made back-to-back trips to the BCS National Championship Game in 2007 and 2008, we have a return contender for the BCS title in the Crimson Tide.

Tide to face top-ranked Irish for BCS title

ATLANTA -- Barrett Jones hobbled into Alabama's locker room in the bowels of the Georgia Dome, two crutches supporting the 6-foot-5, 302-pound All-America center's frame. "You guys don't mind if I take a seat, do you?" Jones asked the collected media as he took a seat in front off his locker, his No. 2 Crimson Tide having beat third-ranked Georgia 32-28 for...

Tide's Jones Finalist For Rimington Award

Much of the attention on Alabama senior center Barrett Jones this season was whether he could become the second man to win the Outland Award as the nation's best lineman. Dave Rimington, a center who played at Nebraska, is the only player to do it. Ironically, there is now an award named for Rimington, and Jones is one of six finalists for it.

One Title Down, One To Go For Tide

The Southeastern Conference was begun and, fittingly, Alabama won the first SEC Championship. Saturday night in Atlanta, the Crimson Tide won its 23rd. A part of that remarkable record is that Bama is the only team to have won league titles in each of the parts of nine decades of the conference.
