The Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers are set to face off this weekend in Death Valley. Thank you LSU for creating this. Tony Stark aka Iron Man quotes were interjected with LSU Head Coach Les Miles giving ever quotable lines. Everything just came together. Alabama could make it to the BCS National Championship game. I’m sure the LSU Tigers would like to stop that from happening. Nick Saban returns to his former stadium where he won a championship in 2003. Excuse me. I’ll be watching this for the next 3 to 4 hours. HT College Football Section and Sourthern Gameday
BEST OF MAXIM
ONE DAY AT A TIME
Nick Saban turned 61 on Halloween and took a reporter along with him for the day. He did make one surprising revelation about the day.
BOLD MOVE, LSU FAN
Happy birthday, Nick Saban…you might want to get that growth removed before the weekend Today is Halloween. Today is also Nick Saban’s birthday. these two things are mutually exclusive and totally independent of each other…but the Devil appreciates the irony nonetheless. To celebrate this joyous occasion, and in anticipation of the Alabama/LSU game this weekend, some...
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.
LSU coach Les Miles holds a place somewhere near the top of the college coaching ranks. Ironically, though, he doesn’t exactly have a reputation as a master tactician.
Whatever Miles’ shortcomings may be in the Xs-and-Os department, they haven’t stopped the Tigers from kicking ass when given extra time to prepare for an opponent. Since taking over at LSU, The Hat's teams...
Les Miles met with the media Wednesday evening to give the latest preview of LSU-Alabama.
Thanks to Hurricane Sandy's ability to control the electricity in my house, I unfortunatly was able to publish the scouting notebook on Monday. However, after reviewing film from this past weekend, catching up on previous weeks, and having Alex Brown of Optimum Scouting fill in for one of our pieces.Two of the better SEC and overall junior quarterbacks in the country faced off...
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.
Remember when Nick Saban called his defense young and inexperienced at the start of the season? Well nine weeks in, Alabama ranks No. 1 nationally in four major defensive statistical categories and No. 2 in another.
Les Miles has enjoyed a good deal of success during his LSU career coaching in big games. To beat 'Bama this Saturday, his Tigers will have to make some changes.
They wont be the dominant forces on the Tiger Stadium turf when No. 1 Alabama and No. 5 LSU collide Saturday night. That designation would fall on the defenses, which are ranked first (Crimson Tide) and third (Tigers) in the nation.
But for Alabama QB A.J. McCarron and his counterpart, Zach Mettenberger, this could be a defining game.
McCarron has been quietly building steam as...
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...
Just when you think you've seen any possible WTF fashion faux-pas you can in the SEC, another one pops up that takes things up a notch further than you could ever think possible. LSU quarterback Zack Mettenberger sat down to talk to reporters sporting a pair of multi-colored striped shoes. Pretty gnarly looking multi-colored striped shoes. (And not in the good way.)
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.
