Alabama head football coach Nick Saban's press conference this week included one of those simple little questions that Saban responds with an answer several times more complex. The query this time around? Whether or Saban enjoys the Iron Bowl week lead up to the annual rivalry game against Auburn?
"I enjoy coaching, I enjoy the challenges. I enjoy working with the
players, trying to prepare them. I look forward to the opportunity we've
created for ourselves. It's what great competitors, or people who like
to compete, really enjoy doing. That's what you work for, to have an
opportunity to win a division, win a big rivalry game, whatever the
emphasis might be. That's what we work for. That's what's fun. From a
coach's perspective, we need to be positive and energetic about the fact
that we have this opportunity. We can't as coaches get all uptight and
expect the players not to get all uptight. We need to approach this in a...

The Big 12 outpaced the SEC in average salary pay per coach according to a USA Today report. The SEC still has the top paid coach, Alabama's Nick Saban, and they have eight coaches in the top 25 of the highest paid. The Big Ten has five of the top 25 salaries for coaches and the Big 12 has four. The SEC actually saw a decrease in average salary since last season, but that is...
Alabama Crimson Tide football fans celebrated Saturday night after Kansas State and Oregon both suffered upset losses, putting Alabama back in prime position for the BCS national championship game.
To get a feel for what the scenes were like, one Crimson Tide fan compiled some fan reaction videos together into one Youtube post.

He may not be Denard Robinson or Johnny Manziel, but Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron can run the ball if he has to, and he's given a glimpse of his ability to do so over the past three weeks.
Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones is comfortable in crimson. Students in elementary, junior high, and high schools across the state of Alabama are familiar with “Spirit Day.” That’s when the students dress in the colors of their favorite team.
There isn’t a ton of drama remaining in the regular season. Assuming Alabama beats Auburn — and Nick Saban’s team is favored by over four...
I’m sure everyone will be rushing out to buy this football at their local Walmart.
Quality control sure isn’t what is used to be.

QUICK HITS: On Wednesday's SEC Coaches Teleconference, Alabama coach Nick Saban explained that despite the heat that comes with the Iron Bowl rivalry, there's no bitterness between him and Auburn's Gene Chizik
Cornerback John Fulton (turf toe) looked back to his old self at Alabama's practice Tuesday afternoon. Watch a video of him and the rest of the Alabama defensive backs inside...
Alabama learned a lesson two weeks ago when it lost to Texas A&M--don't overlook your opponent. This week the Crimson Tide must focus on Auburn and block out what could happen in the aftermath of a win--trips to the SEC and national championships.

The University of Alabama is looking forward to hosting another sellout crowd when the Crimson Tide football team hosts the Auburn Tigers on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and the UA Athletic Ticket Office wishes to remind fans of the potential danger of being sold counterfeit tickets at Tide home games.
If fans have any doubt about the validity of their tickets, they...
After the Alabama Crimson Tide lost their first game of the 2012 college football season, I wrote that it would be foolish and even a bit ignorant to count them out of the BCS Championship after that one loss. That game dropped them to No. 4 in the BCS Standings, but I cautioned that there was still plenty of time for the tide to change for Alabama.
Yes, I used that same pun in that...
Each week the Alabama coaching staff selects players of the week from the previous game. The Crimson Tide had a relatively easy time of it last Saturday with a 49-0 win over Western Carolina and starters did not get a lot of playing time. The Bama coaches took note of the men in the trenches for most of the honors.
It’s surprising to me, albeit only mildly, that no one has re-hashed the whole Shaun King-John Gruden debacle, what-with all the chatter about Gruden possibly landing a job in the college football ranks come 2013. I mean, it wasn’t all that long ago that King was pointing a not-so-nice finger at Mr. Gruden—essentially calling him a liar—and saying he wasn’t a coach...
The Crimson Tide's defense, which has struggled in its last two SEC games, hopes to make Auburn's true freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace's first experience in Bryant-Denny Stadium an unpleasant one.
