Alabama is putting together a truly dominant year. To describe any part of the Crimson Tide as a "weakness" is really more a matter of degree.
That said, if 'Bama has a flaw, what would it be?
Aaron Torres: First off, I agree that to describe any "weakness" with Alabama is to nitpick at this point.
Frankly, watching this team, that has been my biggest takeaway: I don't think they have one.
Statistically, the defense is right on par with last year's historically great one. A.J. McCarron has developed into the best quarterback that Nick Saban has had at Alabama. There's more depth at running back than in years past. The Crimson Tide have three or four legitimate go-to wide receivers, too. And, oh, by the way, they also happen to have one of the best offensive lines I've ever seen in college football.
At this point, I don't think the Tide have any tangible weakness, but if there was one that might concern me, it's the "int...
BEST OF MAXIM
ONE DAY AT A TIME
Nick Saban turned 61 on Halloween and took a reporter along with him for the day. He did make one surprising revelation about the day.
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was so overcome by emotion after leading the Crimson Tide to a go-ahead score against LSU on Saturday night that he began crying on the sidelines.
McCarron and Bama’s offense were quiet in the second half of the game in Baton Rouge. They lost their lead and failed to score until the final minute of the game, when they went 72 yards over five plays...

To celebrate this joyous occasion, and in anticipation of the Alabama/LSU game this weekend, some...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says game manager is the ultimate compliment for a quarterback.
He says that's what the top-ranked Crimson Tide has in the nation's top-rated passer AJ McCarron. No. 5 LSU would love to get similar efficiency from strong-armed Zach Mettenberger in Saturday night's game.
Both are supported by punishing tailbacks and terrific defenses.
With LSU and Alabama set to face off for the third time in a year the Gameday crew rolled into Baton Rouge this morning. We'll see if it actually counts this time...

QUICK HITS: Alabama head coach Nick Saban discussed LSU's pass rush, how his offensive line will deal with it, Tigers' quarterback Zach Mettenberger and more at his Wednesday night press conference.
Quarterback AJ McCarron wore his knee brace again, wide receiver Amari Cooper was the most active he's been all week, and some other observations from Wednesday afternoon's Alabama practice.
With the match-up between Alabama and LSU Saturday, Crimson Tide fans reportedly somehow got their hands on Tigers QB Zach Mettenberger's cell number.
#1 Alabama vs #5 LSU
A rematch of last years championship game is what is expected for tonight’s battle in Death Valley. The Crimson Tide come in with everything working on all cylinders.
