Found September 23, 2012 on Crystal Ball Run:
The Super Six 1. Alabama (4-0): Nick Saban has requested that members of the media give Alabama’s opponents props, so great work on Florida Atlantic’s part for scoring on the Tide. 2. LSU (4-0): The Tigers hung on for an uninspiring 12-10 victory at Auburn and probably deserve to get dropped. Benefit of the doubt. 3. Florida State (3-0): If the Seminoles’ offense continues to give that kind of effort, no team in the ACC can touch them. (Probably true if it doesn’t, too.) 4. Oregon (4-0): The offense was its usual stellar self, but the Duck D made a big statement in a 49-0 shutout of Arizona. 5. Georgia (4-0): No cause for postgame posturing in the Bulldogs’ 48-3 drubbing of Vanderbilt..    6. Florida (4-0): That’s one helluva race that is shaping up in the SEC East. Team of the Week: Kansas State In the Wildcats 24-19 win over Oklahoma, wily Bill Snyder once again reminded us that he should go down as one of the best college football coaches...

Saban impressed with Freeze, Ole Miss

QUICK HITS: Alabama coach Nick Saban said Ole Miss has improved and is a completely different team under new head coach Hugh Freeze, plus other notes from today's press conference.

Another Batman spoof: 'The Dark Meyer Rises'

As you may remember, last week we tipped you off to a video called “The Dark Chiz Rises," a goofy Batman spoof, which “starred” Gene Chizik as Bruce Wayne, trying to save a crumbling Gotham City… or in this case, a crumbling college football program down on the Plains. It’s safe to say that the video not only made our week, but quite possibly our entire 2012 as...

Ole Miss at Alabama College Football Week 5 Preview: Will The Tide Continue To Roll?

Dave Martin, AP Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide look like the best team in America right now and many are questioning if there is another team even close right now. They defeated a Michigan team that may lose five games, but it wasn’t their fault the Maize and Blue are falling flat on their faces (and the fact they were overrated to begin with). Their offensive line is the best...

Saban 'pleased' with win, shutout or not

Alabama may not have gotten its third consecutive shutout, but a win is a win, especially if it pleased head coach Nick Saban, who thought his team played better this week than it did last week against Arkansas.

No. 1 Bama finding painless ways to learn lessons

No. 1 Alabama is identifying potential issues with minimal stress on the field. The Crimson Tide easily dispatched its fourth straight opponent this season with a 40-7 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday. It's creating opportunities to painlessly focus on the little things each week. Alabama coach Nick Saban says that game was about preparing for Southeastern Conference play...

No. 1 Bama showcasing depth, not flashy stats

Alabama's best players won't be found anywhere near the top of the Southeastern Conference in rushing, receiving, tackles or sacks. The top-ranked Crimson Tide is spreading the wealth widely so far, partly because it has been able to substitute heavily in four straight blowouts. Coach Nick Saban says this Alabama team ''doesn't have as many defined stars as...

Alabama blows FAU's mind (69 Times).

Alabama managed to show the world on Saturday that Florida Atlantic defensive end Cory Henry was incorrect when he claimed that the Crimson Tide was beatable, and that the Owls could beat them. Alabama showed Henry the error of his ways with a 40-7 FAU whalloping  on Saturday. That it took sixty-nine players to do so is merely a trivial matter, as 'Bama head football coach...

Lester Communicates For Tide Defense

Safety Robert Lester has ascended in the Nick Saban system to a position of leadership in the secondary. The three-year starter embodies all the attributes required to absorb the complex schemes employed by the Alabama staff.

Mississippi-Alabama Preview

Alabama's best players can't be found anywhere near the top of the Southeastern Conference in rushing, receiving, tackles or sacks. The top-ranked Crimson Tide is spreading the wealth widely so far, building depth and getting youngsters valuable experience in case they're really needed down the line. The starters consequently are getting plenty of relief but not huge...
