ATLANTA Barrett Jones hobbled into Alabama's locker room in the bowels of the Georgia Dome, two crutches supporting the 6-foot-5, 302-pound All-America center's frame.
"You guys don't mind if I take a seat, do you?" Jones asked the collected media as he sat in front off his locker, his No. 2 Crimson Tide having beat third-ranked Georgia 32-28 for the SEC title and a spot in the BCS Championship Game.
He was drained.
Physically suffering an undisclosed injury he said wouldn't keep him from playing for a national title and emotionally after a game that he would call "probably my favorite win I've ever had."
But Alabama isn't finished yet. For much of the nation, this was the national title game. The Tide, though, have simply earned the right to play to keep their conference perched atop the college football world.
Six consecutive SEC titles, two of which came courtesy of these Tide. Standing between them and No. 7 is top-ranked Notr...

Alabama defender Quinton Dial delivered a vicious helmet to helmet hit on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray late in the second quarter. The hit came after Murray threw an interception and was returned by Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix to the Georgia 47. The Crimson Tide would score a field goal on the drive following the hit, entering half time with a 10-7 lead.
Nothing has to be worse than throwing a horrific interception directly to Ha’Sean Clinton-Dixon and then getting absolutely leveled by a massive Alabama defensive tackle. This hit was definitely helmet to helmet, but it wasn’t as much of a blindside hit as you might think. If you look closely, Murray sees Dial at the very last second, but unfortunately for him it was too...
Talk about a battle between two heavyweights who stood in the middle of the ring and just kept delivering haymakers against each other, wondering who would be standing at the end saw a second half point spree that resulted in a 32-28 victory by the Crimson Tide. With this victory, Alabama gets a chance to repeat as it will play the #1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the BCS Championship...
Alabama vs. Notre Dame. The BCS championship game couldn't get much bigger.
The Crimson Tide locked up a spot in the title game in Miami on Jan. 7 with a 32-28 victory over Georgia in the SEC championship game Saturday.
Now the hype can begin for what could be the most-watched BCS title game since the system was implemented in 1998. It'd be hard to find two more popular...
It was setting up to being one of the most dramatic endings to an SEC Championship, but then the Georgia Bulldogs finished it like only Georgia could. Alabama’s defense was on its heels when Georgia reached the 8-yard line with only 15 seconds remaining. The obvious thing to do at this point was to clock [...]
Alabama is back in the national championship for the third time in four seasons. The Crimson Tide survived an early November loss to Texas A&M...
The Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs went at it hard until the final 6 seconds of the game. The Tide rushed for 350 yards on the Dawgs defense and AJ McCarron threw for 162 and a touchdown. Georgia went down 32 – 28 after a beautiful pass from McCarron to Cooper where there was a possible holding call missed. Aaron Murray came out and led the Dawgs all the way down the...
Alabama will get its shot at BCS history. For the first time since Ohio State made back-to-back trips to the BCS National Championship Game in 2007 and 2008, we have a return contender for the BCS title in the Crimson Tide.
But unlike the Buckeyes, who lost both attempts to lift the crystal football, the Crimson Tide have a shot to make history — and win a second straight BCS national...

Kelly comments on the Crimson Tide, injuries to his Irish, bowl preparation plans, and a mental victory in Atlanta.
The Southeastern Conference was begun and, fittingly, Alabama won the first SEC Championship. Saturday night in Atlanta, the Crimson Tide won its 23rd. A part of that remarkable record is that Bama is the only team to have won league titles in each of the parts of nine decades of the conference.
