Alabama had a pretty good idea of what it was getting when it recruited Barrett Jones out of Evangelical Christian School in Germantown, Tenn., in 2008. Scout.com had ranked him the 18th best lineman in the nation, a four-star prospect, and the top prospect in the state of Tennessee. There was a question of where he might play. He was projected as a tackle by some, a center by others.
BEST OF MAXIM
Nick Saban reportedly is being targeted by several NFL teams, but he reportedly is telling them he is not interested in leaving Bama.
During the Civil War, you often literally had brother vs. brother. According to the Alabama Crimson Tide fight song they are “Dixie’s football pride.” And Indiana (despite the fact that it often votes with the old Confederacy these days in elections) was a Union state. So this Notre Dame vs. Alabama national title game matchup does have a bit of a Civil War feel to it.
HONOLULU – The Alabama women’s basketball team (10-3) grinded out a 44-43 victory over Hawaii (4-7) on Sunday at the Stan Sheriff Center to win the Bank of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine Invitational. Crimson Tide junior Shafontaye Myers was named Tournament MVP following the game while senior Alicia Mitcham earned all-tournament team honors.
My dad and I briefly discuss some keys to the big game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Alabama Crimson Tide on January 7th including: the Louis Nix/Barrett Jones match-up, the run game, and as always, lots of randomness.
