Alabama Crimson Tide
Texas A&M Aggies
No. 1 Alabama (1-0) at No. 6 Texas A&M (2-0)
Saturday, 3:30 PM EST, CBS
Line: Alabama -7.5
Love them or hate them, the SEC has delivered some marquee match-ups for the fans very early in the 2013 college football season. In week one, the SEC featured Alabama (vs Virginia Tech), Georgia (at Clemson) and LSU (vs TCU) all in key games. In the second week, two of three biggest games involved SEC teams as Georgia hosted South Carolina and Florida traveled down to Miami. This week it's the game that has been highlighted on many calendars since last year when the Aggies upset the eventual National Champion Crimson Tide in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
One guy who has had this date circled on his calendar is Nick Saban. The last team to beat the Tide was the Aggies. The last team to beat the Tide before that? It was LSU in 2011 and we all remember what happened in that game, right? As a quick reminder, the Tide won 21-0 and took home the National Championship. I think LSU is still...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Welp. It looks like some personal lines have been crossed on College GameDay today. I don’t think Alabama Crimson Tide fans (especially Nick Saban) will like this sign about Kristen Saban. Never want to see a picture of your daughter (who is quite easy on the eyes BTW) with an innuendo under it. I’m surprised this sign wasn’t confiscated at the entrance to GameDay. Now this...
Kristen Saban, daughter of Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban, and arch-nemesis of Phi Mu sorority sister Sarah Grimes, was the subject of a very controversial sign on ESPN College Gameday this morning. How did this one get past the ESPN Gameday Sign police?
Is it over the line? Well you heard about the lawsuit against Kristen Saban, how she allegedly beat her sorority sis Grimes. I don’t...
Nick Saban's face turned red. His voice grew loud, into a bullying yell:
"I made a statement,'' he said. "DON'T ASK ME ABOUT THAT AGAIN.''
Saban took a non-story that nobody on earth was ever going to care about, especially during Texas A&M week -- something about a Yahoo! Sports report on a former player getting impermissible benefits and...
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban walked out of a Wednesday press conference after the multiple questions from the media regarding allegations made in an investigation by Yahoo! Sports that former Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker had taken improper benefits while in school. He eventually walked out.
Here's video of the press conference, via The Crimson White.
Texas A&M got itself into a pretty big hole Saturday against Alabama, and nearly pulled out the win before falling to the Tide 49-42 in one wild and crazy game. Like most fans, I was going nuts watching this game and darn near felt like the up and down insanity was making me old before my time.
Apparently Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban felt the same and told Kevin...
Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban stormed out of his press conference on Wednesday when he fielded three questions in a row about the story/allegations against DJ Fluker and four other SEC players. The story says that the five players received improper benefits and Saban figured that he wouldn’t have to answer any questions about it after he gave a blanket statement...
The next time a coach accuses the media of hype, consider this sentence from Alabama Coach Nick Saban during Wednesday’s Southeastern Conference teleconference: “Texas A&M has an outstanding team, one of the best offensive teams probably in college football, maybe in the history of college football in term’s of their quarterback’s ability to make plays and the great job...
Check out that picture of Nick Saban and a half dozen coaches and assistants on the Alabama sideline. I can only see two non-obscured people, I can't see any shoes or cleats, and I still counted 14 swooshes. That's still not enough for Nike.
The retail giant that built the entire Oregon football program and rebranded half of the country this offseason wasn't satisfied...
Nick Saban gives the cold shoulder to the press after they focused on grilling him about Yahoo’s allegations that former offensive linemen stud DJ Fluker was funneling cash into the Alabama program. Sure Nick Saban is one smug bastard, but these idiots couldn’t ask one question about the biggest game of the season thus far. We are just days away from a Johnny Football v Crimson...
Nick Saban had close to a year to figure Johnny Manziel out, and he learned enough during that time to at least slow the Heisman winner down.
Manziel threw this pick six to Alabama defensive back Vinny Sunseri, and wiffed on the tackle. What exactly did Mack Brown see in him as safety?
All eyes might be on Johnny Manziel in Saturday's Alabama-Texas A&M game - except for the Crimson Tide's defensive backs.
Top-ranked Alabama coach Nick Saban doesn't want his DBs turning back to check out No. 6 Texas A&M's electric quarterback when he's moving around in the backfield.
Too many things can happen, and most of them bad.
The most anticipated game of the early season takes place Saturday when No. 1 Alabama travels to play No. 6 Texas A&M in a matchup of two SEC powers, and a pair of teams that are expected to challenge for the national championship.
Nick Saban and his Tide will have revenge on their minds after losing to the Aggies last November, while Texas A&M will be looking to stun the...

Alabama at Texas A&M: Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide have been looking forward to this matchup ever since the Aggies walked out of Tuscaloosa with a 29-24 win...
