Notebook: Officials came to talk to Alabama about helmet-to-helmet hits before the season started to re-emphasize the new rule, awareness and the severity and these illegal hits. Plus, is there a "Saban Suffle?" and why did Cyrus Kouandjio bring up Freddy vs. Jason in his interview?

Alabama QB A.J. McCarron before the Alabama-Michigan game.
There were two big questions that the media wanted to know when Alabama starting quarterback A.J. McCarron popped into the Alabama media room after practice on Tuesday afternoon. One was about his right throwing hand, which got stepped on while recovering a fumble during the Tide's victory over Arkansas. "...
BAD IDEA JEANS
Florida Atlantic defensive end Cory Henry doesn't seem too intimidated by the Alabama heading into Saturday's game, saying, "They ain’t what people think."
An Alabama fan produced this video making fun of the Arkansas Razorbacks and their head coach John L. Smith. There was a similiar one produced about Auburn that you may have seen over at CrystalBallRun.com. The Crimson Tide fan has apparently moved on to new teams to joke around with. Arkansas is in a bad state right now. Apparently their interim head coach is nearly broke and they...
Quite a few first- and second-year players were able to get playing time in Alabama's 52-0 route of Arkansas last Saturday. But Nick Saban wasn't pleased with the way some of his youngsters prepared--or didn't prepare--for the game.
Discussion of “first” around Alabama football these days is ordinarily about the Crimson Tide’s national ranking, or perhaps the hope for where Bama will end up at the end of the season. But for many players, mostly freshmen and redshirt freshmen, there are all sorts of firsts going on.
In the 1940s, Auburn – then known as Alabama Polytechnic Institute – saw that its football program was going no where, while the Crimson Tide had been a Rose Bowl staple and had become a national powerhouse. Auburn realized, correctly, that playing Alabama could elevate the Tigers. And so, in 1948, the series was resumed with Bama taking a 55-0 victory.
No comment.Well, actually I do have one comment – I disagree with Clay Travis. If the Tennessee Titans and the University of Alabama Crimson Tide played, it would not be close – it is beyond ridiculous to suggest that an NFL team would lose or even stay close with a college team.
If not for @RHancock19, I’d never have these these tweet gems haha.
No matter how much you dislike Alabama or the SEC, at this point it's hard to argue that the Crimson Tide aren't a cut above the rest of the teams in the nation. Oregon moves to No.2 after USC slips up and loses to Stanford, but if there is a team that could challenge the Crimson Tide defense, it's probably the Oregon Ducks and their astounding team speed. LSU is very...
