Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's response to today's report that he tore his meniscus against Missouri last weekend? "Rumors are rumors...I feel good. Ready to go."
BEST OF MAXIM

A.J. McCarron's knee is still fine.
Because Alabama center Barrett Jones...
Whether Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has a slightly torn meniscus or not, he practiced Tuesday and was not limited in any way. However, he was clearly limping in between drills.
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron continued to wear a knee brace, wide receiver Christion Jones ran routes for the first time this week, plus a couple other observations from Wednesday's practice.
Most everyone knows that between Alabama, Florida, LSU and Auburn, the SEC has won the last six National Championships, but this year there is one team, Oregon, who wants the opportunity to unseat the champion conference. The SEC, who will most likely be represented by the almost NFL Caliber Crimson Tide of Alabama will be ready to compete against whoever is on the other side....
Alabama head coach Nick Saban refuted Tuesday's report which said quarterback AJ McCarron had a slightly torn meniscus, praised Tennessee's offense and discussed which players are capable punt returners at Wednesday night's presser.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban wouldn't say if he's suspended defensive end LaMichael Fanning for his body slam tackle of a Missouri player last week, but explained Alabama is handling the matter "internally."
At his weekly Monday press conference, Alabama head coach Nick Saban gave an injury update, told reporters he was tired of talking about rankings and said he felt bad about not getting the intensity up enough after Saturday's rain delay in Missouri.
C.J. Mosley probably doesn't have the most memorable defensive play of the game remembered by those who saw Alabama defeat Missouri, 42-14, in Columbia Saturday. That would probably go to one of the defensive backs, Vinnie Sunseri or HaHa Clinton-Dix, who got interceptions off tips. Or maybe defensive lineman LaMichael Fanning for his slam dunk of a Tigers running back.
No one can argue at this point about which team is number one in college football. It is without a doubt the Alabama Crimson Tide. They easily have the best offensive line in the nation led by center Barrett Jones (Sr. 6-5 302, no sacks allowed) and the rest of the line is loaded with definite future NFL talent. The Tide are currently 25th overall in rushing with 217.2 yards per...
#1 Alabama If the "Crimson Tide" hadn't of started at #2 in the nation, they would not be the BCS's #1 team in the country. Who have they played? Michigan is the best team that Alabama has played this season, but I'm still trying to find them in the BCS top 25. The combined record for Bama's opposing teams is 20-19. The defense is good, but what offenses...
