Every college football season is different, right? Yes and no. There are a few things from the 2012 season that will also be true in 2013. They are:
1. Alabama will be tough to beat
I mean, really tough to beat. Nick Saban is a machine who annually finds an awe-inspiring group of players. Does it even matter who the Tide return and who they’ve lost? Whoever is there is going to be immensely talented and coached-up to the smallest of details.
2. Lane Kiffin will be mocked
Lane Kiffin tries too hard. The guy knows football, I think, but something about his approach just doesn’t click and doesn’t inspire confidence. Combine his questionable coaching decisions, the dumbfounded face he tends to make, and the cutthroat fans down in L.A., and you have a recipe for BOOOOOOOO!
3. Penn State will be tougher than you think
Bill O’Brien’s stalwart coaching style is contagious and will continue to inspire a team of below-average talent. Run the ball, don’t turn it ...

Alabama has cinched a commitment who can help a part of the Crimson Tide’s offense that will need reassurance in the future: The front line.
Last week, Minnesota native, JC Hassenauer rose to the top of the prospect pool as a top performer at Nike’s prospect camp, “The Opening”. After quickly accepting Alabama’s scholarship offer, the 6’2″ 290 pound center could finally...
Alabama is known as the Crimson Tide. Now, the football powerhouse will also be associated with a waterfall.

I didn’t grow up a fan of Crimson Tide Football but I was raised to respect their tradition, their fans and their coach—and I do, right up to this day. Still, in a truth is stranger than fiction kind of way, Alabama football began it's own adventure just two years before Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure hit the movie theatres. While the Pee Wee Herman star Paul Ruebens...
You can’t talk about the Men of Troy without mentioning Lane Kiffin and the doubt swirling around his future at USC.
So with that as a backdrop, expectations are actually low for USC standards as the Trojans are coming off a disappointing 7-6 season — remember they were preseason No. 1 by many.
This is USC and the talent is in place to turn it around quickly and possibly...
Look at the positives and negatives of each true contender in the Southeastern Conference.Alabama Crimson Tide Positives Nick Saban is back for his seventh season as the head coach of Alabama. This is probably the most positive factor of all for the Crimson Tide. Whether or not the Tide has a good, or great team, Saban will instill the same discipline that has won him three titles...
Nick Saban’s former Alabama defensive players are starting to have a rough go of it in the NFL. Courtney Upshaw is battling weight and dedication issues.
Rolando McClain retired this off-season after not living up to his lofty draft status. Another former Crimson Tide stalwart is having his share of NFL problems.
Marcell Dareus was supposed to give the Bills a ferocious presence...
