Found September 11, 2013 on Throw The Flag:
DJ Fluker was a dominant player for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Apparently, according to this screenshot from 4/23/13, he said he took money while in college. This tweet could be total BS. It may not be real. It may  be a joke. Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports posted an article saying that multiple players from SEC schools took money. This tweet was probably not a good idea after this article came out. For September 11, NEVAR FORGET! #Fluker pic.twitter.com/4VY3mj9ry5 — ⒶⓊⒸⓗⓘⓩⓐⓓ (@AUChizad) September 11, 2013

Sports report on a former player getting impermissible benefits and...

Alabama fans place flag on top of A&M campus entrance sign

It seems as though the Alabama Crimson Tide fans have begun to invade College Station for this weekend’s matchup with Texas A&M.  I’m sure putting this Alabama flag over the Texas A&M sign is only the beginning of the mayhem that will happen this week in College Station. [@gbdawkins]

Saban, Sumlin Talk About Game

The next time a coach accuses the media of hype, consider this sentence from Alabama Coach Nick Saban during Wednesday’s Southeastern Conference teleconference: “Texas A&M has an outstanding team, one of the best offensive teams probably in college football, maybe in the history of college football in term’s of their quarterback’s ability to make plays and the great job...

Nick Saban Walks Out

Nick Saban gives the cold shoulder to the press after they focused on grilling him about Yahoo’s allegations that former offensive linemen stud DJ Fluker was funneling cash into the Alabama program.  Sure Nick Saban is one smug bastard, but these idiots couldn’t ask one question about the biggest game of the season thus far.  We are just days away from a Johnny Football v Crimson...

Barkley says Manziel makes him root for Alabama

Without any professional basketball since June, Charles Barkley hasn't had a chance to speak his mind on television on a regular basis.

We are fast approaching the HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE SEC battle Texas A&M and the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday in College Station.

Many Connections As Tide Meets Ags

It seems an unlikely place to look for connections, this Alabama vs. Texas A&M match-up. After all, the teams have played against one another in football only five times. Bama leads the series, 3-2, but the biggest wins for the Crimson Tide may have come in coaching tie-ins. And the winner in that arena has clearly been Alabama.
