Brace yourself Alabama fans. Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron just told the media that he was never an Alabama fan and that he doesn’t know anything about Bear Bryant. To some Alabama fans, this is pure blasphemy. To others, this is no big deal and it was just a guy that was before his time. I’d expect this quote to get blown out of proportion by some and understood by others. Bear Bryant was a legendary coach at Alabama and reporters are already asking Nick Saban if he considers himself to be as good as Bear Bryant. From reporter Izzy Gould: AJ McCarron on Bear Bryant: “I was never an Alabama fan. I don’t know the history, at all.” AJ McCarron has already won a national championship for the Alabama Crimson Tide under head coach Nick Saban. They look to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on January 7th for a a possible 3rd BCS National Championship. AJ McCarron on Bear Bryant: “I was never an Alabama fan.

I know it seems like every team has played in a bowl game named after everything imaginable from the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl to the Beef ‘O’ Brady Bowl to the GoDaddy.com Bowl, but the game everyone has been waiting for is finally here. The Crimson Tide of Alabama takes on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the BCS Championship game to see who finishes #1 and takes home the...
There were some dark days at Notre Dame and Alabama, dark years really, during which two college football's proudest programs flailed and foundered.
As the 21st century dawned, the Fighting Irish and the Crimson Tide were old news, stodgy remnants of a glorious past, not moving fast enough to keep up with the times, and searching for someone to lead them back to the top.

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...
Alabama coach Nick Saban has sent home two backup players from the BCS championship game for violating curfew.
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...

As he sat at a podium on his old turf at Sun Life Stadium, Alabama head coach Nick Saban was badgered some more about a potential return to the NFL. He says it's not happening.
Alabama coach Nick Saban says he and his team ''honor the opportunity'' to play for a national title.
Speaking on Sunday morning, a day before the second-ranked Crimson Tide faces No. 1 Notre Dame, Saban said that means getting players to stay focused on the moment and what they can control. Saban says ''great preparation gives you the confidence to do that...
It is no longer news that Nick Saban is an SOB.
People have known it for years, even before the Miami Dolphins sent around a memo warning employees not to make smalltalk with him. It is part of his charm. From the outside, we never even see the man smile.
"Neither do we,'' Alabama running back Eddie Lacy said Thursday. "He smiles randomly. I'm not going to...
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.
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer AJ McCarron knows how Alabama quarterbacks are judged.
It's about wins and losses, not yards and touchdowns. Titles matter more than trophies, and you can go from beloved to vilified in the heartbeat it takes for one bad throw.
Fans are tough on Crimson Tide QBs. Guys like Tony McCarron, AJ's father.
There's a school of thought that once the whistle blows and the first kick is in the air head coaches don't matter much, but come Monday in the BCS National Championship is that really the case? We say no, both coaches have a major roll in their respective teams, so perhaps the better question is which coach will actually have the bigger effect on the outcome of the game...
Scratch Brian Kelly’s name from the list of teams seeking a new head coach. While meeting with reporters on Saturday, Kelly said that leaving Notre Dame “isn’t an option.”
While saying a move to the NFL was intriguing., Kelly believes he is in the right place right now.
“I think from my perspective I’ve got the best job in the country, NFL, college, high school, whatever...
Mariano Rivera may pick up a save tonight without even jogging out from the bullpen if Alabama captures the BCS National Championship with a victory over Notre Dame.
It wouldn't go down in the record books as career save No. 609, but could play a small part in the history of Alabama football, nonetheless.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban said he had his players watch a video of...
