There’s no place like home, at least in the early part of this baseball season for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Bama is in the middle of an unusual nine-game homestand as Alabama opens Southeastern Conference competition this weekend.
There are game plans to master, along with trends and tendencies to get familiar with as LSU and Alabama get ready to meet at the SEC Tournament. There's something else that looms a little more important for both teams, though, at different levels.
The 7th-seeded Tigers (18-12) and 10 seed Crimson Tide (13-18) are set to square off at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Georgia Dome on the...

Your LSU Men's Basketball team is in Georgia today as they begin play in the 2014 SEC Tournament. The Tigers will need to make the championship game at the very least to have a shot at going to the NCAA Tournament; however, they will probably need to win it all to ensure that goal comes to fruition...

The last time that Alabama met LSU in the Southeastern Conference Basketball Tournament was March 8, 1987, and the stakes were high. It was the championship game of the tournament and the Crimson Tide of Coach Wimp Sanderson took the title with a 69-62 win.

One couldn’t help but appreciate the irony. At Alabama Pro Day, which is for the benefit of the NFL and for the players hoping to be drafted, Alabama Coach Nick Saban took time to address reporters who cover Alabama. He was asked about a report that surfaced last week alledging Cyrus Kouandjio had failed his medical test because of a knee that had been operated on several years ago.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban has already suffered a loss this year – a rarity for the four-time national champion. The proposed “10-second rule”, which Saban was in favor of, would have allowed defenses 10 seconds to substitute before the offense could snap the ball. But it was tabled last week and will not be implemented in NCAA football any time soon. Oklahoma running backs...
As the Alabama men’s basketball team entered the last week of February, it seemed almost certain the Crimson Tide would be a first-day participant in the Southeastern Conference Basketball Tournament. But Bama has had a strong finish to regular season play and gets to wait until Thursday to begin competition.
I am sure you have heard Boosie’s back and even though I don’t know exactly what that means, a lot of people on social media seem to care. If Tupac was back, I think I would understand better, but I digress.
I don’t know what type of pull Boosie has on the recruiting trail, but he is ready to take on Nick Saban and Alabama according to this report by AL.com with video courtesy...

Oklahoma beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, and Oklahoma running backs coach Cale Gundy is offering up a reminder of an off-the-field win for the Sooners, too.
Gundy posted a photo of a note in The Oklahoman newspaper that a possible rule change requiring teams to wait 10 seconds before snapping the ball had been tabled. Alabama coach Nick Saban was pictured.

Freshman pitcher Nick Eicholtz threw seven dominant innings and Alabama got six RBI from freshmen Will Haynie and Casey Hughston, as the Crimson Tide posted a 12-1 victory over the Samford Bulldogs on Tuesday night at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.
Alabama has had success in pulling elite talent from the Tidewater area of Virignia in recent cycles, landing a five-star defensive linemen from the area in each of the last two, and the class of 2015 has similar talent. On Monday, Nick Saban personally offered area five-star Ricky DeBerry and it made an impact despite the junior having more than 50 additional extensions to his name.

We're done looking at the offensive side of the ball. Now it's time to move to the side where championships are won.
Alabama has fielded one of the nation's best defenses in each of the past five years and will look to do the same in 2014.
Today, we look at the Crimson Tide's defensive line, which could be heading for a big season.

Alabama thought it was set at quarterback in the 2015 cycle with Scout’s top signal-caller on board, but a lot has changed in the last six weeks post Ricky Town’s decommitment and eventual pledge to USC. Another top talent in Jarrett Stidham recently came off the board, so what are the Crimson Tide’s options at the position heading into the spring? We examine.
Alabama had a very good week last week. The Crimson Tide baseball team ended what had been a bad week with a win over 10xth ranked Louisiana on the road. Bama then went to Montgomery and defeated Auburn in the Capital City Classic. And last weekend, the Tide swept a three-game series with all shutouts against Mississippi Valley State.
If this is mid-March, college sports fans know what that means. Right. Spring football practice. Although Crimson Tide players have been in off-season workouts, real football begins this week. Or, at least, football in shorts and helmets as mandated by college football rules.
The Alabama pitching staff posted three consecutive shutouts for the first time since 1912, as the Crimson Tide completed the sweep of the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils with a 3-0 victory on Sunday at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. With the fifth straight win, Alabama improves its record to 9-5, while the Delta Devils drop to 0-15.
