Alabama defense looks different, results still the same

The college football season is only one-third of the way complete, but thus far Alabama’s defense appears on track with some of its better ones of recent years’ past. The 2016 defense likely won’t attain the phenomenal numbers of the 2011 defense, but that group put up historic numbers. However, it might not be a stretch to say this season’s team could be as strong as the...

Saban rips LSU for firing Miles in middle of season

Nick Saban does not agree with the way LSU went about firing Les Miles. Miles lost his job on Sunday in the wake of a loss to Auburn, which has the Tigers off to a 2-2 start — the worst start of Les Miles’ 12-year tenure with the program. As far as Saban is concerned, that is no reason to fire a coach with Miles’ track record in the middle of a season. Saban: A man wins...

Alabama has found its next generation of star running backs

While everyone's focus on Alabama this off-season seemed to be on the quarterback position, an equally important question went relatively unasked: How would the Crimson Tide replace workhorse and Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry at quarterback?

Alabama DE Dalvin Tomlinson content to float under radar

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Dalvin Tomlinson is Alabama's other defensive end. He should be hard to miss at 6-foot-3, 310-pounds.

Tomlinson, however, is often overshadowed by All-Southeastern Conference teammate Jonathan Allen. ''Dalvin is a big part...
