  • It was fixed! Conspiracies abound over Alabama’s win over Georgia

    For some Georgia fans Monday’s loss to Alabama in the College Football Championship, though tragically heartbreaking, filled them with hope and pride. For other Bulldogs watchers it was deja vu watching a team rise in joy only to crumble in defeat. And yet for others, the overtime loss was the result of a sinister force -- the Big Ten referees officiating the game. Media outlets and fans alike point to a litany of missed calls that allowed Alabama to claim its fifth title in nine seasons. Here are some of the cited incidents of flagrant favoritism to the Tide: •...

    Any mystery about Alabama's runner-up trophy from last season was answered Thursday. It exists no longer. A video posted from the Instagram account of Crimson Tide receiver Jerry Jeudy shows strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran destroying the hardware. He raised the trophy above his head and threw it to what appears to be the locker room floor. Cochran finished off the remains with a sledgehammer. The language was not suited for all ages. Alabama lost 35-31 to Clemson in last season's national championship game. The Tide plays Georgia on Monday night for this season's title. Watch the full video...
  • Nick Saban on anthem protests: ‘I … respect everyone’s rights not to be censored’

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. ― Asked about the national anthem protests taking place in the NFL, Alabama coach Nick Saban said Monday he’s “just a football coach” who hasn’t been following what’s going on. That doesn’t mean the former NFL coach doesn’t have an opinion. “To me, some of the things that we do in our country ― when I grew up ― they were unifying events, and it’s a little painful to see that those things are not so right now,” Saban said. “But I also respect everyone’s rights not to be censored in terms of the way they express their...
  • Tua Tagovailoa Dazzles In Alabama Debut, But Jalen Hurts' Starting Job Is And Should Be Safe

    Tua Tagovailoa It seems silly to have to write this: Jalen Hurts is Alabama’s starting quarterback. Hurts was both the SEC’s freshman and offensive player of the year in 2016 as he led the Crimson Tide to a national runner-up finish. He threw for 2,780 yards and 23 touchdowns while also gaining 954 yards and scoring 13 times on the ground. This was all as a true freshman. Sure, he struggled in the College Football Playoff against top-notch defenses as a passer. Again, he was a true freshman. He had a fantastic season, but now the Tide, like always, brought...

Keep reading for all the details on this epic matchup! What an amazing game! Alabama, the reigning National and SEC champions, defeated a strong Washington Huskies team 24-7 in the Peach Bowl.

    Bill Connelly December 1, 2016 This might be Nick Saban’s best team ever. But some of college football’s best teams ever have dropped games before. Is it possible for an Alabama team to be underrated? Have we just gotten bored with talking about Nick Saban's Tide? Most of the talk regarding college football's Championship Weekend has centered around the fun matchups in Penn State-Wisconsin, whether Colorado or Virginia Tech has a shot at an upset, or what the Playoff committee might do about Michigan. But we haven't had much to say about Bama, defending national champion and winner of four...

    The picture, taken outside the University of Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, shows a Crimson Tide fan holding a sign directed at opponents University of Mississippi. “Ole Miss Girls Are Easier Than Their Out-Of-Conference Schedule,” reads the sign, a reference to the first two games on the Rebels’ schedule. They scored 76 and 73 points in those games. The image, posted on the official College GameDay social media accounts, included the caption “Just no chill,” or not cool. Anchor Rece Davis and analyst Kirk Herbstreit rebuked the image as it flashed on the screen during the broadcast among other fan...

    Do you enjoy hearing the song "Dixieland Delight" sung by a packed Bryant-Denny Stadium during Alabama football games? Well, it appears we’ve heard it for the last time – at least for now. The singing of "Dixieland Delight" has been a Crimson Tide tradition for years, but the school has decided to put a stop to the song because Bama fans turn it into a vulgar taunt of the opponent. An email was recently sent around Alabama’s marketing folks requesting the song be removed from all athletic events until the university’s AD decides otherwise.

Investigators did say the altercation involved only students. The incident was captured on video, and was posted on You Tube.

    Well, here it is, the final game of the 2009 college football season. For much of the bowl season, I've had to work, get my car fixed, and Google search any insignificant question and computer problem my grandparents call me about. (You would think with their age and guile they'd have the answers to various things readily available. You would think). So needless to say, this has kept me from my assigned college football commenting duties. For that I apologize, but tonight I will get the festivities going. So without further ado...

    Tuscaloosa, Ala. – Every good Southerner knows there are only two religions in Alabama – football and football. This week, a new maxim emerged: When it comes to the state judicial system, there’s a lot of crimson hiding beneath those billowing black robes. Circuit Judge Dan King announced Wednesday he would grant a delay in the civil suit Traywick v. Energen Corporation, which was scheduled for trial Jan. 4 in Bessemer, Ala., a suburb of Birmingham. The reason? Energen’s defense attorneys want to attend the showdown between the University of Alabama and University of Texas at Austin, scheduled for Jan....

    Jack Mildren died earlier this year and a number of scenes from the Okie 71 season have been available on youtube. Just once in my life have I seen a situation in which an amateur version of a sport outgrew the pro version: the wishbone era of college football. The contrast with pro-style football is stark; instead of the offense being outnumbered 11-10 on running plays (the quarterback isn't contributing anything but a turkey imitation), if it's done right the DEFENSE is effectively being outnumbered something like 12 or 13 - 11. Note that when Mildren went to throw the...
