I think these jerseys are absolutely outstanding. I wish more universities would do this. Alabama has some of the best jerseys in college football, so why mess with them? All they did was update the material used and kept the same clean look. They have a recognizable tradition, so why mess it up with a gimmick? Very nice job by Nike and the Crimson Tide Athletic Department...
It’s really happening, Auburn fan. Katherine Webb, 2012 Miss Alabama, an Auburn grad and girlfriend of AJ McCarron, really went out and bought an Alabama jersey. She’s also currently in a Nissan Armada on the road to Miami with McCarron’s family.

The life of a big time college quarterback seems to be pretty good off the field as Johnny Manziel proved late last year. Well Alabama’s A.J. McCarron is continuing the trend after images surfaced of him with Katherine Webb, the Ms. Alabama of 2012 and an Auburn alum to boot. Busted Coverage (by way of [...]

A person with knowledge of the decision identified the players as freshman linebackers Dillon Lee and Ryan Anderson. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school didn't release the names.
A statement from Saban announced the disciplinary action. Alabama...
Manti Te'o and Barrett Jones are two of college football's good guys and best players.
The Notre Dame linebacker and Alabama center have led their teams into the BCS championship after postponing NFL paychecks to return for their senior seasons. They're good academically and have collected numerous awards and honors for football.
Coaches say Te'o and Jones are just...
There’s nothing like turning our attention to the BCS National Championship Game with a little game of what I like to call “Who’s Got the Sports Karma?” This is where I compare both teams – in this case the No. 1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide – by not using boring stuff like statistics and offensive or defensive matchups, but by what they’ve...

The SEC may be considered the strongest conference in college football, but so far the 2012/13 bowl season hasn’t shown it.
Through Thursday’s games, in fact, the SEC is batting a mere .500 (a 3-3 record), with surprising losses for Florida (to Louisville...
When all is said and done, Alabama's first-year offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier will have had much to say and do with AJ McCarron's budding legacy.
NOTEBOOK: After Texas A&M's scrambler Johnny Manziel got the best of Alabama, the Crimson Tide has vowed to make sure that they don't make the same mistakes against Notre Dame's mobile quarterback Everett Golson.
