As a member of the Football Writer’s Association of America, I get to cast a ballot for the FWAA All-American team. This year I wanted to be sure that my ballot was made public for anyone to see how I voted if they were interested. The ballots for offense were due Sunday, so I am aware that there are still games to be played. However, I feel comfortable my selections here would...
About an hour before lunch on Monday, Alabama senior offensive guard Anthony Steen got a telephone call from his father. Dad had good news. Anthony had been selected as the Southeastern Conference offensive lineman of the week.
Alabama's offensive woes have been partially masked by its ability to score in other ways, but coach Nick Saban knows improvement on that side of the ball is paramount to his top-ranked team's success moving forward.
That doesn't mean Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze believes his No. 21 Rebels will have it any easier as they try to end a nine-game losing streak to the Crimson...

Alabama's special teams and defense are providing a pretty nice bailout whenever the offense isn't racking up points.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide has scored just about every which way this season - returning a punt, a kick, a blocked punt and two interceptions for touchdowns.
That knack helped Alabama (3-0) beat No. 10 Texas A&M and create more lopsided scores against...

Anthony Steen was back at practice for Alabama Wednesday and Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban said he expected Steen to be the starter at right guard when Bama hosts Colorado State Saturday. But at crunch time last weekend at College Station, Steen was out of the game with an injury. In stepped a veteran back-up on the crucial drive that resulted in the winning touchdown.
HOOVER, Ala. -- Three All-Americans: gone. The Rimington Trophy winner: gone. A combined 160 career starts: gone.
The Crimson Tide's offensive line is going through a major transition period with Barrett Jones, D.J. Fluker and Chance Warmack all in NFL minicamps, but despot those losses, the two-time defending national champions were the runaway favorites in the eyes of those...

College football season is right around the corner. Soon, you can take a break from counting down the days until kickoff and drooling over new uniforms because next week, the SEC media days start in Hoover, Alabama.
Today, the SEC announced the roster with every player that will be in attendance — each school selects three athletes – also, all 14 head...
(Photo Courtesy: USA Today Sports) As Alabama gets set to begin an unprecedented third straight BCS title run this spring, one of the scariest realities for the rest of college football is this: Despite winning a second straight championship in 2012, the Crimson Tide were actually one of the youngest teams in the country last year. Alabama had just 12 seniors on their 2012 roster...
Alabama right guard Anthony Steen has announced that he will return for his senior season next year.
FINALLY, we’ve arrived at the only “meaningful” game of the college bowl season, the National Title Game. The storylines have already made themselves clear, and ESPN and other major outlets have milked those to death already.
But this game is, from my perspective, the final game for many of the prospects in the national championships. Both teams have talent on every level...
Right guard Anthony Steen said he didn't know Alabama was ranked No. 1 in both polls after practice Tuesday night. Clearly, the news is not a hot topic of conversation among the Tide.
