Bama Fans Celebrating Christmas

  You’ll have to look close on some of the photos of Alabama fans celebrating Christmas. Some photos seem simple, like the grown Bama fan wearing his new T.J. Yeldon jersey. You have a grown-ass man full of cheer because someone got him a Yeldon jersey and a Bama hat for Christmas. That’s simply Roll Tide being Roll Tide. Then we have the Bama fan who got some Bama gear, four...

What Constitutes “Go Big”

When I saw the FootballScoop.com story, I cringed. Not because I didn’t want Pitt to aim high. Not because I don’t think they couldn’t get a really good coach. Simply because a story like that sets up disappointment and ridicule. Because when you look around the college football landscape, there aren’t that many realistic “go big” options for a head coach. The landscape...

Photo: There Is Another Alabama Crimson Tide Family “Sky” Portrait

At the time, we figured it was a one-of-a-kind photo. It turns out that’s not the case. Wednesday, a Twitter user named Tyler Busby tweeted a photo of a different family doing the same pose...

Alabama fans hold burglars at gun point until cops come

Alabama fans never disappoint. And not just because they wear Alabama gear 365 days a year. What happens when your home gets broken into? You call the police, right? Not if you're a Bama fan. You call your family -- already clad in Bama gear and carrying their handguns -- and they descend on your home where they subsequently catch the thiefs after the idiot robbers get lost on the...
