Safety Robert Lester has ascended in the Nick Saban system to a position of leadership in the secondary. The three-year starter embodies all the attributes required to absorb the complex schemes employed by the Alabama staff.

Another Batman spoof: 'The Dark Meyer Rises'

As you may remember, last week we tipped you off to a video called “The Dark Chiz Rises," a goofy Batman spoof, which “starred” Gene Chizik as Bruce Wayne, trying to save a crumbling Gotham City… or in this case, a crumbling college football program down on the Plains. It’s safe to say that the video not only made our week, but quite possibly our entire 2012 as...

Saban impressed with Freeze, Ole Miss

QUICK HITS: Alabama coach Nick Saban said Ole Miss has improved and is a completely different team under new head coach Hugh Freeze, plus other notes from today's press conference.

Ole Miss at Alabama College Football Week 5 Preview: Will The Tide Continue To Roll?

Dave Martin, AP Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide look like the best team in America right now and many are questioning if there is another team even close right now. They defeated a Michigan team that may lose five games, but it wasn’t their fault the Maize and Blue are falling flat on their faces (and the fact they were overrated to begin with). Their offensive line is the best...

No. 1 Bama finding painless ways to learn lessons

No. 1 Alabama is identifying potential issues with minimal stress on the field. The Crimson Tide easily dispatched its fourth straight opponent this season with a 40-7 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday. It's creating opportunities to painlessly focus on the little things each week. Alabama coach Nick Saban says that game was about preparing for Southeastern Conference play...

No. 1 Bama showcasing depth, not flashy stats

Alabama's best players won't be found anywhere near the top of the Southeastern Conference in rushing, receiving, tackles or sacks. The top-ranked Crimson Tide is spreading the wealth widely so far, partly because it has been able to substitute heavily in four straight blowouts. Coach Nick Saban says this Alabama team ''doesn't have as many defined stars as...

Georgia Football: FAU Coach Pelini, Alabama Pressured “more than Georgia”

File this quote under, ‘I’ll get back to you later’, but, after getting trounced by the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Florida Atlantic coach Carl Pelini was asked to compare Georgia (their week three opponent) to Alabama snf here’s what he had to say: “That’s not Georgia we faced today, that’s Alabama – it’s very different. Different scheme-wise. I think they’re...

Square Fits In Perfect With Tide Defense

Damion Square and the Alabama defense have held opponents to a grand total of 21 total points through four games, 2nd nationally with a 5.25 points average. Normally a defensive end in the 3-4 scheme, he has shown the strength and versatility to move inside on pass rushing situations. The Houston native was available for comments at the Monday press conference.

Jones Knows Of Ole Miss Coach

Memphis is the hometown for the celebrated Alabama center Barrett Jones. He recalls competing against the high school team coached by current Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze. The experience was a memorable moment in his prep career for a particular reason.

Alabama sitting pretty atop the polls

After pounding Florida Atlantic 40-7 Saturday, the Crimson Tide remains the No. 1 team in both the AP and Coaches' polls.

Weekend Wrap: Snyderball soars

The Super Six 1. Alabama (4-0): Nick Saban has requested that members of the media give Alabama’s opponents props, so great work on Florida Atlantic’s part for scoring on the Tide. 2. LSU (4-0): The Tigers hung on for an uninspiring 12-10 victory at Auburn and probably deserve to get dropped. Benefit of the doubt. 3. Florida State (3-0): If the Seminoles...

Alabama blows FAU's mind (69 Times).

Alabama managed to show the world on Saturday that Florida Atlantic defensive end Cory Henry was incorrect when he claimed that the Crimson Tide was beatable, and that the Owls could beat them. Alabama showed Henry the error of his ways with a 40-7 FAU whalloping  on Saturday. That it took sixty-nine players to do so is merely a trivial matter, as 'Bama head football coach...
