Barrett Jones doesn’t poor-mouth. He knows that Alabama had a good season-opening win over Michigan Saturday night. But he’s also realistic, aware the Crimson Tide can – and must -- make improvement.
BEST OF MAXIM
New ABC Saturday Night Football sideline reporter got a taste of primetime when she tried to ask Alabama head coach Nick Saban about his running back situation and the multiple backs getting playing time and playing well. Saban, in the type of gentle warmness that has seen him take Alabama to the top of college football, responded by shooting arrows of fire into Cox. How dare...
Nobody from Alabama can quite remember when "Nick Satan" became a part of vernacular. Or if they do, they will not say for fear of him making their life hell.
Suffice it to say that enough people believe the nickname fits that T-shirts were made, pitchfork and all. There are a lot of people who do not like the Alabama coach, though none of them are the houndstooth-clad...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says the only thing that has changed for the second-ranked Crimson Tide is the buzz.
Saban said Monday that the talk before the 41-14 rout of No. 8 Michigan was that ''we were too young, too inexperienced, couldn't handle success.''
But he says nothing else is different about the team and ''it's going to be all about the...
Plenty of other coaches do what Nick Saban does. They preach about the process, focus on getting better every day instead of the trophies and championships that await, and want their players to be accountable.
Thing is, Saban does it all better.
He's the best in the business, and just in case anybody had forgotten that fact after a long offseason, the Crimson Tide's 41...
The long wait came to an end this weekend. As much as we love summer, is there anything worse than those final long weeks that precede the start of the college football season? The closer we get to season openers, the harder it is to be patient. Thankfully we now have a full season to look forward to, one that began with a bang. Two teams from the state of Michigan headlined...
QUICK HITS: Alabama coach Nick Saban pokes at the media, discusses where his team needs to improve, his thoughts on young T.J. Yeldon and more at Monday's press conference.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Alabama is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll, moving past Southern California after its resounding victory against Michigan.
The Crimson Tide swayed more than enough voters with its 41-14 win Saturday night in Texas to overtake the preseason No. 1 Trojans, who beat Hawaii 49-10. USC entered that game a 40-point favorite at home.
Despite being the new No. 1 in the polls and despite beating a then-Top 10 opponent 41-14 in college football's opening weekend, Alabama head coach Nick Saban is focused on correcting the mistakes his team made and said there is plenty of room for progress.
Although the message of the day from Alabama Coach Nick Saban on Monday following the Crimson Tide’s impressive Saturday night win over Michigan was that Bama needs continued improvement, he reported that a number of players had good games.
Running back T.J. Yeldon racked up 137 yards on 12 touches in his Alabama debut. Not too shabby for a true freshman against a top 10 opponent in primetime.
We hear from Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban, quarterback A.J. McCarron and others following Saturday night's 41-14 season-opening victory over Michigan.
During Saturday night's ESPN college football television broadcast of the Michigan-Alabama game on ABC, the audio was cut for a few seconds as Brent Musburger was talking at the 2:30 left in the third quarter. As the audio came back, viewers saw Kirk Herbstreit laughing and Musburger admitting to a Freudian slip. Naturally, everyone wondered what Musburger said. Fortunately...
Alabama was the only SEC team to defeat a top 25 opponent in week one despite the perception of the conference being the most dominant in college football. However, the SEC did have one of the most challenging schedules slated in the opening week and they scored the second most points per game among FBS conferences. The ACC, Big 12, Big East, and Pac 12 did not play top 25 opponents...
Alabama junior cornerback Dee Milliner was selected as the Walter Camp Foundation National Defensive Player of the Week on Sunday for his performance in the Crimson Tide’s 41-14 victory over No. 8 Michigan in the Cowboys Classic.
It was almost too easy to pick the “key to victory” for Alabama prior to the season-opening game against Michigan in the Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas. After the game, it was obvious the Crimson Tide was much better than the Wolverines in a lot of areas, but perhaps the most telling was that the “key” was turned.
