Alabama coach Nick Saban has suspended cornerback Geno Smith for the season opener with Virginia Tech after a weekend drunken driving arrest.
Smith, a projected starter at nickel back, was arrested Sunday morning and charged with DUI. The sophomore was at practice Tuesday for the top-ranked Crimson Tide.
Saban says Smith hasn't had previous discipline problems with Alabama. He says the player has some ''in-house things'' he must do before returning.
Smith played in all 13 games as a freshman during last season's national championship run, and his role on the nation's top defense increased late in the year.
Starting middle linebacker Trey DePriest also returned after Saban suspended him last week for violating team rules, saying the suspension would be a short one.

Nick Saban is a handsome older feller, with great success. He is happily married with adult children and appears to be a solid family man. But for whatever reason, he has an aura about him that has given him the appearance to some as Lucifer at work in college football. Can you really blame people for thinking this way? I mean, the man is from the tree of Belichick. One of his former...
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has a hot girlfriend. But too bad AJ McCarron’s NFL draft stock isn’t as hot as Katherine Webb. Well, it’s luke warm. According to some NFL scouts his draft stock is high. But he has his detractors though too.

Alabama Coach Nick Saban has discussed his philosophy of discipline in the past, and anyone who was paying attention should not have been surprised at his suspension of cornerback Geno Smith for the Crimson Tide’s season-opening game.

I am all for Alabama getting knocked off its pedestal this season. It has been too long since someone other than the Crimson Tide ended the season as national champions. Yes, they did deserve it, but its time for a change.
In the meantime the Alabama Faithful have very reason to be proud of their team, and no reason to hide it. While I am not one for arrogance with the number...

If you can name Alabama’s starting quarterbacks over the past 50 or 60 years, you are not really special. Thousands of Crimson Tide fans could do it with a fair degree of accuracy. But if you have BEEN one of those quarterbacks, now that’s special. The latest in that special position is AJ McCarron.
The Alabama Crimson Tide will make history, winning their third consecutive national championship to clinch dynasty status in one of the sports it is most unlikely to establish such a foothold. With a veteran and proven winning quarterback manning the offense, a ground game that should be punishing, a defense that is always going to be difficult to penetrate consistently, and the...
There’s a slightly predictable cycle in following Alabama football players. When they are prospects, there is much interest in the recruiting process. Once they become a part of the team, they tend to fall off the radar, in part because Bama practices are closed to the media, but in greater part because the Crimson Tide has built itself into a position where it doesn’t have to...

For those of you keeping score at home the Crimson Tide were voted #1 in all preseason polls. Do you think the Tide will run the table? It’s so hard to go undefeated, but it might be even harder to see them losing a game. National Championship here they come.

It’s the nature of the position that the safety can see everyone on the field. When it comes to Alabama, everyone on the offensive side of the field needs to know the location of Crimson Tide safety HaHa Clinton-Dix.
