Given his size and lack of athleticism, it’s...

What can Alabama do differently in its rematch with LSU so that the Crimson Tide can win the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 9 in New Orleans? Here’s something for starters:
Colorado State has called a news conference for Tuesday to introduce its new football coach amid reports that it's Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain.
McElwain would replace Steve Fairchild, who was fired last week by new athletic director Jack Graham after going 16-33 in four seasons with the Rams, including three straight 3-9 finishes.
McElwain, who's preparing...
This is the time of year when once upon a time the greatest interests among Alabama fans were the national championship and bowl game and recruiting. These days an additional topic is that of which underclassmen will leave the Crimson Tide to try the National Football League.
