BEST OF MAXIM
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was so overcome by emotion after leading the Crimson Tide to a go-ahead score against LSU on Saturday night that he began crying on the sidelines.
McCarron and Bama’s offense were quiet in the second half of the game in Baton Rouge. They lost their lead and failed to score until the final minute of the game, when they went 72 yards over five plays...
Although Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron has had an excellent season, he has yet to be put in a position where his team has needed him to pull its fat from the fire. That’s what I wrote this past Thursday in my preview of this weekend’s Heisman matchups. And, as it turned out, it was McCarron’s [...]
With Alabama's hopes of a second straight national title hanging by a thread, A.J. McCarron shook off a dismal second half and guided the Crimson Tide right down the field.
Talk about a Saturday night stunner in Death Valley.
McCarron read an LSU blitz and flipped a swing pass to T.J. Yeldon, who did the rest on a 28-yard touchdown with 51 seconds remaining that gave the top...
Just because A.J. McCarron used to be a game manager, and comes from a long line of game managers doesn't mean he should be demeaned as one this season.
The last time that the Alabama quarterback threw an interception, it was a simpler time: Eli Manning only had one ring, LeBron James still had no rings, there was an NBA work stoppage, not an NHL lockout, Dan...
Quarterback AJ McCarron wore his knee brace again, wide receiver Amari Cooper was the most active he's been all week, and some other observations from Wednesday afternoon's Alabama practice.
#1 Alabama vs #5 LSU
A rematch of last years championship game is what is expected for tonight’s battle in Death Valley. The Crimson Tide come in with everything working on all cylinders. The defense is at it’s usual self, giving up only 8.1 pts per game, which leads the nation. Their offense is much improved over last year as AJ McCarron is sneaking into the...
Alabama is putting together a truly dominant year. To describe any part of the Crimson Tide as a "weakness" is really more a matter of degree.
That said, if 'Bama has a flaw, what would it be?
Aaron Torres: First off, I agree that to describe any "weakness" with Alabama is to nitpick at this point.
Frankly, watching this team, that has been my biggest...
Alabama coach Nick Saban says game manager is the ultimate compliment for a quarterback.
He says that's what the top-ranked Crimson Tide has in the nation's top-rated passer AJ McCarron. No. 5 LSU would love to get similar efficiency from strong-armed Zach Mettenberger in Saturday night's game.
Both are supported by punishing tailbacks and terrific defenses.
BATON ROUGE, LA No one could call this one boring.
That, of course, was the knock on the last two meetings between Alabama and LSU, the first being settled solely on the feet of the field goal kickers and the second, the BCS Championship Game, being another defensive slugfest that put many on the east coast asleep before halftime.
Not this one.
Unlike the other two, this year...
Saturday night the Alabama Crimson Tide roll into Death Valley to meet the LSU Tigers. The Tigers are a 9.5 point underdog at home. Will this be the game of the century? Or just another roll of the Tide? Here are three bold predictions.1. Alabama's Defense Will Outscore LSU's OffenseAlabama's defense will outscore LSU's offense by two touchdowns. This may not be...
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- T.J. Yeldon took a swing pass from A.J. McCarron and went 28 yards for a touchdown with 51 seconds remaining, giving top-ranked Alabama a stunning 21-17 victory over No. 5 LSU on a raucous Saturday night in Death Valley.
The Crimson Tide (9-0, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) showed it could come from behind after Zach Mettenberger rallied the Tigers (7-2, 3...
We watched four of our top ten teams go down last weekend so this will be the biggest restructuring of the DC poll in 2012 (so far). With the SEC, Big 12 and Pac 12 Games of the Century of the Millennium of the Week coming let's see how the standings look before our next round of shake ups.
1. ALABAMA (8-0): The Tide faced their "toughest" test of the season against...
