Who is the most underrated Alabama football player? That’s an honor that usually goes to an offensive lineman, who has no statistics. It seems a bit strange that a man who started every game on defense on a national championship team that led the nation in every defensive statistical category would hardly be mentioned in Crimson Tide outlooks.

Nick Saban and Les Milles will meet at midfield in November. Maybe.

Alabama in a Word: Elite
Las Vegas oddsmaker Todd Fuhrman estimated Southern Cal would be a three-point favorite over Alabama on a neutral field in a fantasy Week 1 matchup. That’s got to irk Tide fans, and likely SEC fans overall.

Most of the national college football awards which are presented in the post-season now have “watch lists” – players whose previous accomplishments make them pre-season candidates for various honors. This year's lists will be released July 9-19, and there will probably be the names of a lot of players who will be going against the Crimson Tide this season.
Fresh off a BCS National Championship win, the Crimson Tide will once again boast one of the top recruiting classes in the nation. Kristen Ledlow caught up with Chad Simmons to discuss Bama's commitments thus far.
There are two Alabama seasons that makes one believe the BCS was better than what we had before. The first is 1966, when the Crimson Tide was the nation’s only undefeated, untied team and finished third when the Associated Press fixed its poll. The second is 1977, when the same Notre Dame prejudice denied Bama the crown.
