The University of Alabama doesn't play around when it comes to its trademark.
No, not even when a local bakery, who are huge supporters of the Crimson Tide, decides to create elephant-shaped cookies with a script "A" on them. Seriously? Yeah, seriously.
From The Big Lead
:Mary’s Cake and Pastries received a cease and desist letter, and a request for documentation of how many $1.75 cookies had been sold so Alabama and CLC could collect damages.
The modest bakery wasn't the only party Alabama and the Collegiate Licensing Company went after, though. They also spent more than $1.4 million on a failed lawsuit against artist Daniel Moore for depicting the Alabama uniform in artwork. Oh, and the school is also trying to assert control over the houndstooth patter, because legendary coach Bear Bryant used to wear it.
Do you take Nick Saban for the type of person who reads magazines? If you do, don’t ever tell him, because he apparently doesn’t have the time of day for reading a few articles, and he gets offended if you think he does. Tonight a reporter asked Saban what he thought of AJ McCarron’s new cover on this week’s Sports Illustrated, and Nick was not pleased. His response was...
The Alabama football team certainly had its struggles on Saturday night against Mississippi State in Starkville, Mississippi. But this game could actually benefit the Tide in many ways before they face the 6th ranked Auburn Tigers on November 30th for the annual Iron Bowl.
Although the Tide played a sloppy game of football, this game, in a way, humbled the Tide– something that...
The 2013 Heisman Watch is closer now than it has been all season. Week 12 shook up the top 5, and here’s how the candidates stand in my updated list:
5. Sean Mannion, Oregon State:
Yes, Oregon State did take a really hard L this weekend to Arizona State. And yes, the Beavers have fallen off the face of the earth in the second half of the season. However, the junior quarterbacks...
Lynch Toyota of Auburn is offering free cars if the Auburn Tigers shut out the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl on November 30.
AJ McCarron is on the verge of leading Alabama to its third consecutive national title. His run has also raised the prominence of his girlfriend, Katherine Webb, and to a different extent, his mom, Dee Dee Bonner.
We caught up with the woman who gave a different meaning to red -- not Crimson -- in gaining a gathering on social media. Dee Dee's doing pretty well on Twitter, too...
Nick Saban is a no nonsense, football oriented kind of guy (in case you didn't know). He is not in to the all the extraneous crap that fills up space for newspapers and web sites. As long as he has been coaching football you would think reporters that regularly cover him and the Alabama football team would know this.
Well, apparently one has still not figured this out--and...
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron graces the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, as the debate rages on where he ranks among college football quarterbacks of today and historically. It's an interesting choice of covers because so much happened in college football last weekend, and this cover choice would have been better suited for Iron Bowl week, where it would upset Nick...
When you are 35-2 as a starter in college, it would appear fair for people to bring your name up in the discussion of all-time greats. That’s exactly what Sports Illustrated is doing with it’s latest cover featuring Alabama QB AJ McCarron. “King Crimson” is what they call the Bama star who is currently trying to lead his team to three straight national championships:
Alabama is 10-0 right now and well on its way to a third straight BCS National Championship. It has been another ridiculously dominant season for the Crimson Tide, and a major reason for that success is signal-caller AJ McCarron. McCarron has never received the hype or accolades that many other quarterbacks across the nation often do, but what he certainly doesn’t lack is a football...
It is something of a measure of where Nick Saban has the Alabama football team that the Crimson Tide can go on the road in the Southeastern Conference and win a game by two touchdowns and have most of the focus on what went wrong.
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron is featured on this week's cover of Sports Illustrated. Is it time to start thinking about him as one of the best ever?
Alabama was able to sleepwalk through a victory at Mississippi State last weekend without dire consequences.
Opponents in the near future probably won't be as forgiving.
The two-week hype begins for one of the most anticipated Iron Bowls in years, but No. 1 Alabama has one more game in the interim - against FCS-level Chattanooga on Saturday - and it will give the Crimson Tide...
