Kristen Saban (Nick Saban’s daughter) had a College GameDay sign about her flashed on TV

  Welp. It looks like some personal lines have been crossed on College GameDay today. I don’t think Alabama Crimson Tide fans (especially Nick Saban) will like this sign about Kristen Saban. Never want to see a picture of your daughter (who is quite easy on the eyes BTW) with an innuendo under it. I’m surprised this sign wasn’t confiscated at the entrance to GameDay. Now this...

Was Kristen Saban (Nick Saban daughter) Gameday sign over the line?

Kristen Saban, daughter of Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban, and arch-nemesis of Phi Mu sorority sister Sarah Grimes, was the subject of a very controversial sign on ESPN College Gameday this morning. How did this one get past the ESPN Gameday Sign police? Is it over the line? Well you heard about the lawsuit against Kristen Saban, how she allegedly beat her sorority sis Grimes. I don’t...

Nick Saban to Kevin Sumlin: You Just Took 10 Years Off My Life

Texas A&M got itself into a pretty big hole Saturday against Alabama, and nearly pulled out the win before falling to the Tide 49-42 in one wild and crazy game. Like most fans, I was going nuts watching this game and darn near felt like the up and down insanity was making me old before my time. Apparently Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban felt the same and told Kevin...

Saban, Alabama harping on need for improvement

Nick Saban isn't exactly lavishing praise on Alabama's performance in a memorable win over Texas A&M. The top-ranked Crimson Tide showed ''competitive character,'' beat a good division rival and played ''halfway decent'' in the middle of the game between early and late lapses. Those are the positive reviews. Two days after the 49-42 victory...

Johnny Manziel Throws A Pick Six For 73 Int Return (GIF)

Nick Saban had close to a year to figure Johnny Manziel out, and he learned enough during that time to at least slow the Heisman winner down. Manziel threw this pick six to Alabama defensive back Vinny Sunseri, and wiffed on the tackle.  What exactly did Mack Brown see in him as safety?      

Nick Saban made T.J. Yeldon apologize for taunting Johnny Manziel

From USA Today: “I want to apologize to everyone for my selfish actions on Saturday. That is not the way I want to represent myself, my family and our team. That is not the way we do things at Alabama. This is something that I will learn from, and I will use better judgment in the future,” Yeldon said in the release.” Related posts: Get ready for ‘Johnny Cam’, a CBS camera...

Colorado St.-Alabama Preview

Colorado State coach Jim McElwain knows former boss Nick Saban well enough to expect Alabama to be highly motivated to improve on its disappointing defensive performance of last weekend. Saban's former offensive coordinator brings the Rams to Tuscaloosa on Saturday night with the daunting task of facing the top-ranked Crimson Tide, who are eager to get back on track defensively...

Admitting admiration for Nick Saban

The much-hyped 'Game of the Year,' Marcus Mariota's Heisman-worthy day, time is ticking down on Mack Brown and more from Week 3 in college football. ALL EYES ON COLLEGE STATION AND ALABAMA-TEXAS A&M The world halted and clung to its axis for three-and-a-half hours Saturday. That's the easiest way to describe watching No. 1 Alabama at No. 6 Texas A&M. ...

Nick Saban not amused by T.J. Yeldon making "money" gesture after touchdown in Alabama-Texas A&M game.

T.J. Yeldon making money gesture. Photo via Larry Brown Sports. Alabama head football coach Nick Saban wasn't at all too amused with the way Crimson Tide running back T.J. Yeldon celebrated a late-second period touchown against Texas A&M on Saturday. He was probably even less amused with the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty Yeldon got for making it. Yeldon celebrated...

Best College Gameday Signs – Week 3 Edition

As the ESPN College Gameday crew rolled into College Station this weekend for the Texas A&M vs Alabama game, there was bound to be plenty of great signs. Not only did the game feature one of the most talked about athletes in Johnny Manziel but it was also a match up between two SEC teams and two top-10 ranked teams. It is safe to say the people of College Station do not like...

In aftermath of 'Bama-A&M, calm and perspective

The worst defensive performance in the history of Alabama football, at least according to the stat sheet, was no reason for Nick Saban to panic. Scoring 42 points and putting up 628 yards against the No. 1 team in the country - and losing - was not the way Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin expected the most-hyped game of the young college football season to play out. ''Nobody...

Johnny Football Goes Down

Johnny Manziel dropped 42 points on Alabama, but that was not enough to for Texas A&M to roll the Tide.  Alabama deserves to be number one, and after yesterday, it is hard to argue that fact.  Despite the loss, Manziel still impressed.  Not many QBs orchestrate 42 points against Alabama’s defense under Nick Saban.  Even […]
