Alabama coach Nick Saban almost never shows emotion. But after the Tide’s big 38-17 win over LSU tonight, he apparently couldn’t hold back his joy. In a move very unlike anything we’ve ever seen before from the Alabama coach, Saban jumped into quarterback A.J. McCarron’s arms right as the buzzer sounded.
Saban went on to call McCarron “the best quarterback in the country” in his post-game interview. The Alabama lovefest is in full force.

The big moment was after the game, not during. Not when Nick Saban called the fake punt that turned all momentum. After the game, Saban ran over to his quarterback, A.J. McCarron, and jumped into his arms.
Yes, Saban was showing his human side after No. 1 Alabama beat rival LSU 38-17 Saturday.

Nick Saban simply can’t be beat.
Saturday, Saban and his Crimson Tide won their toughest (supposedly) game of the season, pounding LSU for a 38-17 victory. For the fans of teams that need Alabama to lose, things aren’t looking up. The Tide appear to be getting stronger as the season goes on, thanks mostly to their fierce leader, Nick Saban.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- If there's been a potential foil to Nick Saban's reign in Tuscaloosa, the likeliest of spoilers to an unprecedented three BCS titles in four years and the never-ending quest for more, he stood 55 yards across Bryant-Denny Stadium's field on Saturday. He wore his trademark white ballcap and purple pullover, clapped his hands with his elbows tucked in...
The 2013 Heisman Watch got a whole lot closer in week 11 thanks to Oregon’s loss to Stanford. Was it enough to knock Marcus Mariota off his first place pedestal? Here’s my updated top 5:
5. A.J. McCarron, Alabama:

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron wore a special bow tie in honor of a friend with lung cancer prior to the Crimson Tide's game against LSU.
C.J. Mosley racked up tackles, deflected a couple of passes and smoothly handed off on a fake punt that helped get Alabama rolling.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide's All-America linebacker came up big in any number of different ways in Saturday night's 38-17 win over No. 18 LSU.
Really, what else is new? Mosley has been the leader and star of one of the nation's best defenses...
In all the publications I have read, all the newspaper articles that have been written and all the television and radio conversations that have been had this college football season, I have seldom not once heard anything about AJ McCarron being added to the list of Heisman hopefuls.Shame on the establishment.When it comes to great Alabama quarterbacks, I know you may have to dig...
Near the end of the LSU-Alabama game on CBS, we had our first cutaway of Katherine Webb, who as we all know by now, is the girlfriend of Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron. And while Verne Lundquist did mention her sitting next to McCarron's mother, Dee Dee Bonner, he chose not to gush over Webb as his former colleague Brent Musburger did earlier this year.
It's been close to a year since Brent Musburger uttered those now infamous about Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, the lovely Miss Katherine Webb, and the memory of them does not appear to be going away anytime soon.
During the Saturday night broadcast of the Alabama/LSU game the camera eventually found Webb with A.J.'s mom in the stands. Much like the...
Nick Saban spent 4 years as the defensive coordinator under Bill Belichick with the Cleveland Browns and he learned a thing or 2 during his tenure. Bill Belichick helped turn Nick Saban into one of the great defensive minds in football. More than that, though, he taught Saban how to run a successful program, which Saban clearly took to heart. He's gone and built a dynasty at...
We’ve got a dandy going in Tuscaloosa tonight. After LSU took the lead, 7-3, on a 3-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Hill, Alabama struck back on a 52-yard touchdown pass from A.J. McCarron to O.J. Howard. It’s 10-7 in the second quarter.
It's never easy to figure out who will be the last two teams standing under the current BCS system.
Thankfully, that system goes away soon.
In the meantime, the struggle to define and recognize the actual two best teams continues. And this year, it seems to be taking shape.
Alabama continued their run of staking a claim in the BCS title hunt by easily dispatching LSU...
