A.J. McCarron: The Steal of the 2014 NFL Draft

The NFL draft is less than three weeks away. Since the college football season ended (and even before that) we’ve been hearing names such as Clowney, Manziel and Mack: names of players who will likely be selected in the first few picks in May’s NFL draft. Those of you who, like me, are hardcore football fans know that teams are built with players selected on the second and sometimes...

Manning, Gase “visit” to Saban may have violated offseason rules

The meeting between former Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning and current Alabama coach Nick Saban will raise plenty of eyebrows among Volunteers fans who voluntarily wear on Saturdays in the fall an objectively unattractive shade of orange.

Alabama Safety Landon Collins Talks Trash To Oklahoma Fans; “Play For BCS Then Talk”

Alabama safety Landon Collins likely won’t be welcome in the Sooner state any time soon. The Crimson Tide’s All-American safety is fueled by his team’s 45-31 loss to Oklahoma in January’s Sugar Bowl.
