Harvey Updyke, the obsessive Bama fan accused of poisoning the legendary oak trees at Toomer’s Corner in Auburn, was spotted on Bourbon Street in New Orleans on the eve of the BCS National Championship Game between Alabama and LSU. Check out the photos from al.com. Updyke told al.com reporter Izzy Gould that he’s tired of his 15 minutes of fame. That’s an odd statement considering the fact that Updyke wore a jacket branded with his now infamous phrase, “Roll Damn Tide.”

The spoils of victory? For Les Miles, about $5.7 million.

Miles misses out on pay boost with loss (AP)

Les Miles wound up one victory short of a hefty pay raise. The LSU coach already has a lucrative contract that pays him about $3.75 million a year and that runs through the 2017 season, thanks to a three-year extension he received last January. Clearly, he won't be hurting for cash. But he did miss out on a salary increase of nearly $1 million.

Alabama wins BCS title on strength of 3 point shooting

NEW ORLEANS—Stymied down low for most of the game by LSU’s vaunted defense, Alabama was forced to score from distance in order to capture victory in last night’s BCS title game. The Crimson Tide, whose strength wasn’t in their scoring, rode a hot streak as they went 5 for 7 from downtown. “We adapted tonight,” said Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban on his team’s...

BCS National Title 2012 Preview: a Rematch for the Ages, LSU to wash out the Tide

Film history is littered with bad sequels to fantastic movies – Godfather, Caddyshack and The Matrix come to mind as examples of producers who didn’t know when to stop. You have no doubt seen this analogy heading in to the 2012 BCS Title Game between the LSU Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide but it has two flaws – 1) the original game was not entertaining nor played at a...

Column: 'Every Game Counts' - until it doesn't

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist The same people who said LSU was the best team in college football all season had to concede that Alabama was the far better team Monday night. So who's really No. 1? That depends on whether you buy into the Bowl Championship Series' version of a national title. Remember that after you strip away the pseudo-science...

There's No Doubt Who's No. 1: Alabama Is National Champions

 When the final whistle blew back on November 5 ending the first LSU-Alabama showdown, I couldn’t help but get one nauseating, gut-wrenching, pit out of my stomach. No, it had nothing to do with the Mexican food I'd eaten earlier that night, but instead was the idea that I’d seen the best team in college football that night… and seen them lose. Above all, I couldn...

Ex-Auburn RB Dyer heading to Ark. St. (AP)

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that former Auburn tailback Mike Dyer is transferring to Arkansas State. The person confirmed the move Monday on condition of anonymity because Arkansas State has not announced the move.
