Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron used to wander over to athletic director Mal Moore's corner office every couple of weeks for a chat, one Crimson Tide quarterback to another.
So it hit McCarron especially hard when he got the news Saturday that Moore had passed away after a battle with pulmonary problems.
''He was such a legend here and I always liked being around his...
Say what you want about Bret Bielema, but the man knows how to stir up controversy right off the bat. The first-year Arkansas coach managed to raise some eyebrows this week before even coaching a single game in the SEC.
Bielema was speaking to the Saline County Razorback Club, a group of Arkansas boosters, when he managed to say some pretty ridiculous things. Including calling out...
Alabama Coach Nick Saban is helpful in providing a number of Crimson Tide football players for interviews each week. Astute observers will notice, however, that it is a relatively few number of different players. Each week we’ll get AJ McCarron and C.J. Mosley and some others who have earned their stripes.
Alabama Coach Nick Saban allowed the media to watch all of spring football practice Monday, including the secret plays that were being installed and all the position changes that are being made. April Fool! But reporters did get to see a couple of practice periods.
The bottom of the sixth inning did not start well for Alabama baseball Tuesday night. The first two men were meekly erased as Bama looked at a one-run deficit to visiting Southeastern Louisiana. Things did not look good for the Crimson Tide.
The good news for Alabama baseball is that the Crimson Tide gets to play at home this week. The bad news is that one of the top teams in the Southeastern Conference will be coming to Sewell-Thomas Stadium.
Alabama has offered over 115 class of 2014 prospects thus far in the cycle, with four committed as the calendar turns to April. Still, the Crimson Tide is in very good shape for some of the best players in America, and BamaMag.com categorizes each and every one in the latest edition of “sorting the offers.”
Nick Saban knows what he’s doing in the recruiting game, and he’s focusing his attention on some big fish this week. We break that down and check in with plenty of Alabama targets for the absolute latest inside.
Wide receiver Dominique Booth of Indianapolis (Ind.) Pike picked up his 22nd offer today when he went south to visit the Crimson Tide. Booth talks about his day at Alabama and his plan to decide early.
It was hot. It came after more than a week of no practice. And it wasn’t what Alabama Coach Nick Saban wanted to see.
The Patriots are hosting some high-profile NFL draft prospects.
Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan, Florida State defensive end Tank Carradine, Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant, Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker and LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu are all set to visit New England, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Jordan, Carradine, Trufant and Fluker are expected to be first...
Could Luke Joeckel be the first overall pick? (bloguin.com)
Look at the two teams in the Super Bowl this past year and you might think to yourself, "wow, their defenses are pretty good," or, "wow, their offenses are magnificent." In reality, the game was won and lost on the interior line. Baltimore's offensive line protected Joe Flacco on their historic run...
The following article is a none Wisconsin opinion on the status of Bret Bielema. I think you will find it an interesting read. Enjoy!
I am super pumped up about the new Bucky coach and Melvin Gordon for Heisman 2013. I am.
And a few token pics of Bret’s wife Jen to keep you focused. Jen is on the bottom tier of SEC wives but Bret certainly out kicked his coverage.
