Most everyone knows that between Alabama, Florida, LSU and Auburn, the SEC has won the last six National Championships, but this year there is one team, Oregon, who wants the opportunity to unseat the champion conference. The SEC, who will most likely be represented by the almost NFL Caliber Crimson Tide of Alabama will be ready to compete against whoever is on the other side. Alabama on offense has been running over around and through it opponents ranking 17th in points scored (40.5/gm), but it is defensively where they have manhandled teams as they rank 1st in points allowed (7.5/gm). Last year the Tide lost 5 of their starters on defense to the draft, but Coach Nick Saban has retooled and if it was possible, gotten better. The competition against the SEC has been mostly one dimensional, which Oregon has been for the last few years, but not this year. They still are high scoring as they rank 2nd in points scored (52.3/gm) but they have improved defensively as well as they only ...

No one can argue at this point about which team is number one in college football. It is without a doubt the Alabama Crimson Tide. They easily have the best offensive line in the nation led by center Barrett Jones (Sr. 6-5 302, no sacks allowed) and the rest of the line is loaded with definite future NFL talent. The Tide are currently 25th overall in rushing with 217.2 yards per...
Alabama head coach Nick Saban refuted Tuesday's report which said quarterback AJ McCarron had a slightly torn meniscus, praised Tennessee's offense and discussed which players are capable punt returners at Wednesday night's presser.
Just as in any other week of college football, Week 7 held a little bit of everything: blowouts, upsets, thrillers, the whole 9 yards. That’s part of what makes it such a great sport. And now that we’ve had a little time to piece together all the pieces of the puzzle from yesterday, it’s time to recap some of yesterday’s action. (1) Alabama 42 Missouri 10 What else is...
Alabama head coach Nick Saban wouldn't say if he's suspended defensive end LaMichael Fanning for his body slam tackle of a Missouri player last week, but explained Alabama is handling the matter "internally."
Vinnie and Sal Sunseri are on opposite sides of a prominent Southern rivalry, and not overjoyed about it.
Vinnie is a safety for No. 1 Alabama and father Sal is Tennessee's defensive coordinator, making Saturday night's game a highly stressful family get-together in Knoxville, Tenn.
Father and son have almost identical takes on the situation.
It's a "very, very...
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban chewed out Tide fans earlier this season for disrespecting Western Kentucky's chances of beating the reigning BCS title holder (which the Hilltoppers didn't do, of course). He also tried to deflate the notion that Bama was "invincible" later in the season. Saban's latest Mission: Impossible? Selling Saturday's opponent ...

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's response to today's report that he tore his meniscus against Missouri last weekend? "Rumors are rumors...I feel good. Ready to go."
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron continued to wear a knee brace, wide receiver Christion Jones ran routes for the first time this week, plus a couple other observations from Wednesday's practice.
With new ownership and a fresh approach taking over the front office of the NFL'sCleveland Browns, is there a chance a new era of football could be led by one of the biggest names in college football?
Rumors are starting to spread (they have since been denied) the Browns may be interested in targeting Alabama head coach Nick Saban, who was an assistant with the team from 1991...
Whether Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has a slightly torn meniscus or not, he practiced Tuesday and was not limited in any way. However, he was clearly limping in between drills.
There were very few things pretty about the way the University of Missouri Tigers football team played last Saturday against the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.
In fact, Nick Saban's led team dominated Mizzou physically from the first whistle until the last.
A display of that dominance came on a play in the closing minutes where Alabama linebacker LaMichael Fanning...
