CRIMSON AND CLOVER
Robert Bentley, the Governor of Alabama, took time out of his hectic gubernatorial work schedule to question Nick Saban's play-calling in Alabama's loss to Texas A&M.
The Alabama Crimson Tide lost their first game since November 5th of 2011 last weekend to the Texas A&M Aggies and their Heisman candidate quarterback Johnny Manziel. Now people are questioning Nick Saban and his play-calling. Even the Governor of Alabama, Robert Bentley seems to think Saban didn’t know what he was doing when he allowed AJ McCarron to pass the ball from the...
Notebook: Head coach Nick Saban thinks offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeir is "doing fine" in his first year at Alabama despite many questioning his play calls on the final drive of last week's loss to Texas A&M.
Now it's out of Alabama's hands.
The fourth-ranked Crimson Tide have not only lost that aura of invincibility that seemed to surround Nick Saban's team through eight games and the final two minutes against LSU, but surrendered control of their fate in the national title derby. No. 9 Texas A&M made sure of that with Johnny Manziel's dazzling performance and a...
After a tough two-week stretch, the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide must refocus, regroup and regain its identity Saturday against an FCS opponent. As head coach Nick Saban said this week, "I don’t think that we need to be worried about who we’re playing as much as we need to worry about how we’re playing."

After suffering a stunning upset loss at home to Texas A&M last weekend, Alabama has likely erased its national championship hopes for the 2012 season. As you may know, the people of Alabama take their football kind of seriously. Fans have not reacted well to the loss to the Aggies. Neither has the governor of Alabama.
Earlier this week, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley was asked...

Special teams players are included as well. Even though the SEC had the most players listed with six (two on special teams). There are no skill players from the SEC listed as an All-American other than in special team...
Western Carolina coach Mark Speir has dealt with some of the challenges Alabama faced in recent years as the team everyone badly wants to beat.
It makes Saturdays that much harder, if decidedly less daunting than taking a 1-9 Football Championship Subdivision team to face the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide (9-1), which is coming off its first loss of the season.
Speir was an assistant...

Longshot National Title Contender
Alabama (9-1, 6-1) – The Tide’s loss to Texas A&M only dropped Nick Saban’s squad to #4 in the BCS and that’s the positive. The negative is that Kirby Smart’s defense has had its share of troubles in the secondary the past few...
