Alabama's backfield remains in good hands

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- T.J. Yeldon's Alabama teammates weren't surprised by the freshman's praiseworthy debut for the top-ranked Crimson Tide. Tight end Michael Williams said he realized Yeldon was special in his first spring practice. Center Barrett Jones believes he might claim the title of Alabama's "next great running back" and knows he's not alone...

Breaking: Nick Saban is definitely still a jerk

When you're the defending national champions, and you're coming off a 41-14 shellacking of a Top 10 team, and you've just climbed to #1 in the polls once again... you'd think that Nick Saban could smile for just one second of his life. Last we saw Nick Saban, he was being a jerk to Heather Cox for asking a simple question during a simple sideline interview....

Nick Saban blows up on media again (Video)

Nick Saban blew up on the media during his press conference on Wednesday in what appeared to be an attempt to control the media’s coverage of his team. The Alabama coach is upset that his team is getting pumped up by the media and fans after one big win over Michigan, and he’s fearful that his players may get too cocky and be thrown off in their quest to win another national...

Week 2 Predictions: The New SEC Rises

In week one, I went a perfect 13-0 (because my upset special picks are just for fun and I don't count Twitter predictions), including a perfect 24-17 pick for the Florida-Bowling Green game. Pretty good start, I'd say. But it wasn't the start I wanted in other respects, if you get what I'm saying. I'd trade 100% on picks for a real win any day. Should I try...

College football: Tailgater best and worst of week 1

 The long wait came to an end this weekend.  As much as we love summer, is there anything worse than those final long weeks that precede the start of the college football season?  The closer we get to season openers, the harder it is to be patient.  Thankfully we now have a full season to look forward to, one that began with a bang.  Two teams from the state of Michigan headlined...

Saban not a "happy camper" Wednesday night

Alabama head coach Nick Saban ripped into reporters after practice Wednesday evening. He felt like the Tide's opponent this week--Western Kentucky--was not receiving enough respectful or positive coverage and he wanted to make sure his opinion on that matter was heard.

Nick Saban thinks the media should 'get everyone involved in the game'

"I'll show you where you can shove that microphone..." College football’s ruling tyrant, Nick Saban, is ordering you, members of the media, to spare him all your love and adoration. On the heels of his team’s dismantling of Michigan over the weekend, Saban berated the hacks in attendance at his Wednesday media session, letting them know that he would prefer...

Video: Alabama’s Nick Saban blows up at media over Western Kentucky game

Check out the video. Alabama head football coach Nick Saban isn’t a happy camper. The Crimson Tide is ranked No. 1 in the country after pounding the Michigan Wolverines. Alabama is a 40-point favorite to beat Western Kentucky on Saturday. That prompted Saban to go off on the media for not showing the Hilltoppers any respect.

Oklahoma falls to No. 5 in latest AP poll

NEW YORK (AP) -- Alabama is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll, moving past Southern California after its resounding victory against Michigan. The Crimson Tide swayed more than enough voters with its 41-14 win Saturday night in Texas to overtake the preseason No. 1 Trojans, who beat Hawaii 49-10. USC entered that game a 40-point favorite at home. The Tide...

Saban: "There’s plenty of room for progress"

Despite being the new No. 1 in the polls and despite beating a then-Top 10 opponent 41-14 in college football's opening weekend, Alabama head coach Nick Saban is focused on correcting the mistakes his team made and said there is plenty of room for progress.

College Football Out of Conference Records & Stats

Alabama was the only SEC team to defeat a top 25 opponent in week one despite the perception of the conference being the most dominant in college football. However, the SEC did have one of the most challenging schedules slated in the opening week and they scored the second most points per game among FBS conferences. The ACC, Big 12, Big East, and Pac 12 did not play top 25 opponents...
