Saturday night the Alabama Crimson Tide roll into Death Valley to meet the LSU Tigers. The Tigers are a 9.5 point underdog at home. Will this be the game of the century? Or just another roll of the Tide? Here are three bold predictions.1. Alabama's Defense Will Outscore LSU's OffenseAlabama's defense will outscore LSU's offense by two touchdowns. This may not be as bold as it sounds. LSU's quarterback Zach Mettenberger has just seven touchdown passes this season. Last season in two meetings the Tigers never got to the end zone against the Crimson Tide. This year the Tigers' offense will continue this stat, they will not find the end zone. Saturday night Bama's defense will show the Tigers how to score a touchdown.2. The Tigers' defense will do what hasn't been done against the TideLSU ranks eighth nationally with 13 picks as a team. Saturday night they will show their prowess by intercepting Tide's quarterback A.J. McCarron once.McCarron hasn...

I feel your tongue mom
Pictures of AJ McCarron’s mother with fake boobs is flying around the interweb today. Above we have him kissing her on the mouth. Not so sure how they do things in Alabama but this is kinda weird.-TO
A.J. McCarron’s Mom Is Super Chesty
Nick Saban Has A Tail
LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger was supposed to be the savior for the LSU offense, so far this season that hasn’t happened at all.
Mettenberger looks confused in the pocket and hasn’t made great decisions or throws. Yes, it would be easy to blame the LSU offensive line, who are playing about their 16th player this season, or the wide receivers who have dropped about every good...
Zach Mettenberger was never supposed to be the question.
Mettenberger, who began his career at Georgia, consistently offered an answer, a solution to other teams' problems. He provided an answer for Butler (Kan.) Community College, leading the Grizzlies to the JUCO national title game. During his re-recruitment, FBS programs across the country needed an experienced signal caller...
Thanks to Hurricane Sandy's ability to control the electricity in my house, I unfortunatly was able to publish the scouting notebook on Monday. However, after reviewing film from this past weekend, catching up on previous weeks, and having Alex Brown of Optimum Scouting fill in for one of our pieces.Two of the better SEC and overall junior quarterbacks in the country faced off...
Quarterback AJ McCarron wore his knee brace again, wide receiver Amari Cooper was the most active he's been all week, and some other observations from Wednesday afternoon's Alabama practice.
#1 Alabama vs #5 LSU
A rematch of last years championship game is what is expected for tonight’s battle in Death Valley. The Crimson Tide come in with everything working on all cylinders. The defense is at it’s usual self, giving up only 8.1 pts per game, which leads the nation. Their offense is much improved over last year as AJ McCarron is sneaking into the...
Alabama is putting together a truly dominant year. To describe any part of the Crimson Tide as a "weakness" is really more a matter of degree.
That said, if 'Bama has a flaw, what would it be?
Aaron Torres: First off, I agree that to describe any "weakness" with Alabama is to nitpick at this point.
Frankly, watching this team, that has been my biggest...
The Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers are set to face off this weekend in Death Valley. Thank you LSU for creating this. Tony Stark aka Iron Man quotes were interjected with LSU Head Coach Les Miles giving ever quotable lines. Everything just came together. Alabama could make it to the BCS National Championship game. I’m sure the LSU Tigers would like to stop that from happening...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says game manager is the ultimate compliment for a quarterback.
He says that's what the top-ranked Crimson Tide has in the nation's top-rated passer AJ McCarron. No. 5 LSU would love to get similar efficiency from strong-armed Zach Mettenberger in Saturday night's game.
Both are supported by punishing tailbacks and terrific defenses.
We watched four of our top ten teams go down last weekend so this will be the biggest restructuring of the DC poll in 2012 (so far). With the SEC, Big 12 and Pac 12 Games of the Century of the Millennium of the Week coming let's see how the standings look before our next round of shake ups.
1. ALABAMA (8-0): The Tide faced their "toughest" test of the season against...
College football fans, I’m sorry.
Please understand, I tried all week to find an interesting angle on Saturday’s Alabama-LSU game. I tried reading as much as I could, tried e-mailing fans of each team, tried talking to friends in the media, hoping that someone, anyone really, would give me something interesting to write about.
Unfortunately, they all struck out, just like I...
