Cooper, Yeldon make big impact for top-ranked Tide

Yeldon rushed for...

Nick Saban says Derek Dooley “is doing a fantastic job” at Tennessee

It’s not unusual for Nick Saban to make statements that don’t really make sense. Case in point, Saban’s comments about Derek Dooley after Alabama dominated Tennessee 44-13. Saban used his opening statement in his post-game press conference to shower his former assistant with praise. Praise that most in Knoxville don’t agree with it. And since this is obviously “Saban-talk”...

Alabama remains No. 1 in AP poll

Alabama has run its streak of weeks at No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll to eight, the longest stay atop the rankings by the Crimson Tide.

For the first time this year, Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley was NOT selected by the Crimson Tide coaches as one of the players of the week. So when is a negative news? When the leading tackler and the man who made a key interception that led to a touchdown and had a tackle for loss doesn’t merit the list.

Discover Fan Loyalty Poll: Fans Agree, But Should Alabama Crimson Tide Remain No. 1 In 2012 BCS Standings?

The Alabama Crimson Tide are once again the No. 1 team in the latest release of the 2012 BCS Standings, much the same as they are in the AP Top 25 as well as the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll. Alabama is the top team coming off of another SEC Blowout against the Tennessee Volunteers, but do they deserve to remain as the No. 1 team in the BCS rankings? I predicted that the Crimson Tide...

Gators stay at No. 3; FSU up one to No. 11

Mississippi State Next For Alabama

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. “Alabama hasn’t played anyone.” The big test is always coming, and thus far the Crimson Tide has been able to handle it. To be sure, the Crimson Tide benefited from some bad injury luck, Arkansas and Missouri not having their starting quarterbacks when they played Bama. Regardless, drama has not been the theme of Tide football games this season.
