LSU Fans Hacked An Alabama Assistant Coach’s Twitter Account

It’s been less than a week that new Alabama defensive backs coach Mel Tucker has been on the job. But it looks like he’s already become the victim of a rival team’s fan base having a little bit of fun on Twitter. Tucker joined the social media network on January 27, and sent out a few pro-Crimson Tide tweets in the days that followed. But over the past 18 hours, his account...

Giants Draft Watch: Landon Collins, S, Alabama

Picking a safety would only be needed if Antrel Rolle leaves in free agency. But considering he is 32 and has played a decade in the NFL, if he expects a big contract from the Giants he will be disappointed. I could see some team paying him a large chunk of money to go elsewhere. At 6' 222 pounds, Collins is a big defensive back, destined to play strong safety in the NFL that could...

Feldman: Alabama QB Blake Sims invited to NFL Combine

Alabama QB Blake Sims has been invited to next month's NFL Combine, a source told FOX Sports on Wednesday.  The idea that Sims could become an NFL quarterback would've sounded very far-fetched a year ago at this time, but the 6-0, 205-pounder ended up beating out touted FSU transfer Jacob Coker for the Crimson Tide's starting job and he led Bama to a College Football Playoff berth...

Tight games becoming norm for Alabama basketball

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) Alabama is getting used to heart-thumping finishes, for better and worse.
