He may not be Denard Robinson or Johnny Manziel, but Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron can run the ball if he has to, and he's given a glimpse of his ability to do so over the past three weeks.
BEST OF MAXIM
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban's press conference this week included one of those simple little questions that Saban responds with an answer several times more complex. The query this time around? Whether or Saban enjoys the Iron Bowl week lead up to the annual rivalry game against Auburn?
"I enjoy coaching, I enjoy the challenges. I enjoy working with the...
The Big 12 outpaced the SEC in average salary pay per coach according to a USA Today report. The SEC still has the top paid coach, Alabama's Nick Saban, and they have eight coaches in the top 25 of the highest paid. The Big Ten has five of the top 25 salaries for coaches and the Big 12 has four. The SEC actually saw a decrease in average salary since last season, but that is...
Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones is comfortable in crimson. Students in elementary, junior high, and high schools across the state of Alabama are familiar with “Spirit Day.” That’s when the students dress in the colors of their favorite team.
I’m sure everyone will be rushing out to buy this football at their local Walmart.
Quality control sure isn’t what is used to be.

Alabama learned a lesson two weeks ago when it lost to Texas A&M--don't overlook your opponent. This week the Crimson Tide must focus on Auburn and block out what could happen in the aftermath of a win--trips to the SEC and national championships.
The finalists for the Outland Trophy was announced Monday November 19 by the Football Writers Association of America. All three players made the College Football Universe All-America Team and I nominated Barrett Jones for the 2012 Outland Trophy; Jones was the 2011 winner. He was also my top rated college offensive football lineman this preseason and is a definite favorite for...
After the Alabama Crimson Tide lost their first game of the 2012 college football season, I wrote that it would be foolish and even a bit ignorant to count them out of the BCS Championship after that one loss. That game dropped them to No. 4 in the BCS Standings, but I cautioned that there was still plenty of time for the tide to change for Alabama.
Yes, I used that same pun in that...
The University of Alabama is looking forward to hosting another sellout crowd when the Crimson Tide football team hosts the Auburn Tigers on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and the UA Athletic Ticket Office wishes to remind fans of the potential danger of being sold counterfeit tickets at Tide home games.
If fans have any doubt about the validity of their tickets, they...
When Alabama Coach Nick Saban gave his Wednesday press briefing, he took time to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and urged all to take note of the many blessings we have. He was speaking to everyone on this celebration that is unique to our nation.
The Crimson Tide's defense, which has struggled in its last two SEC games, hopes to make Auburn's true freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace's first experience in Bryant-Denny Stadium an unpleasant one.
The Iron Bowl will feature two quarterbacks at very different stages in their careers.
Auburn freshman Jonathan Wallace is making his first road start Saturday against AJ McCarron and No. 2 Alabama. Wallace was still in high school with no scholarship offer from the Tigers when McCarron was being named MVP of the national championship game.
Wallace says he is in a good position...
It may seem that Alabama and Auburn football teams don’t have much in common as they approach the end of the regular season with a game at Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday. The Crimson Tide is having an excellent season, while the Tigers are limping to the finish line.
