    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A woman charged with killing a fellow Alabama fan after the end of last weekend's Iron Bowl football game was angry that the victim and others didn't seem upset over the Crimson Tide's loss to archrival Auburn, said the sister of the slain woman.

    A fight broke out on campus at Alabama State University Monday and now a full investigation by ASU's campus police department is underway. The fight involved two groups inside a campus cafeteria. There were no apparent serious injuries. ASU Police are not releasing any specifics because they don't want to jeopardize the investigation. 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...

    Well, I searched, and found nothing about Alabama's gutty win over LSU last night, so here it is, 27-21. http://blog.al.com/tidecorner/2008/11/alabama_vs_lsu_the_full_recap.html So, Roll Tide. On a personal note, while I don't know Rashad Johnson, and have never even met him, I work with his father who is a foreman at the company at which I am employed. He's proud as a peacock, of course, and my bet is that once Rashad signs that NFL contract, he will retire and follow his son aound to every game.
  • Judge nixes $5M verdict against NCAA in Alabama boster suit

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A judge threw out the $5 million verdict an Alabama football fan won in his lawsuit accusing the NCAA of slander, ruling in a decision made public Wednesday that jurors were wrongly swayed by prejudice against the sanctioning organization. Circuit Judge William Gordon granted the NCAA’s request for a new trial in a lawsuit filed by timber dealer Ray Keller of Stevenson, but he did not set a date. Gordon said in a 13-page opinion that the multimillion-dollar verdict wasn’t supported by evidence, and he ruled the award “is the result of passion or prejudice.” He also...

    The Tide came rolling in on National Signing Day. After an impressive flurry of commitments in the past 48 hours, and thanks to a solid recruiting foundation that was laid in the spring and summer, Alabama has been crowned by Rivals.com as the recruiting national champions for the class of 2008. The Crimson Tide finished with an amazing run in Nick Saban's second recruiting class in Tuscaloosa. Saban and his staff landed three five-star players and 18 four-star recruits, giving them enough of a push to edge Notre Dame and SEC rival Florida. As of 3 p.m. EST, the Tide...

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - With large swaths of the Gulf Coast still in ruins from Hurricane Katrina, rich federal tax breaks designed to spur rebuilding are flowing hundreds of miles inland to investors who are buying up luxury condos near the University of Alabama's football stadium. About 10 condominium projects are going up in and around Tuscaloosa, and builders are asking up to $1 million for units with granite countertops, king-size bathtubs and 'Bama decor, including crimson couches and Bear Bryant wall art. While many of the buyers are Crimson Tide alumni or ardent football fans not entitled to any special...

    Alabama fired coach Mike Shula less than a year after the Crimson Tide finished a 10-2 season, according to a newspaper report. Shula told his assistant coaches late Sunday night that Alabama athletic director Mal Moore had dismissed him, The Tuscaloosa News reported on its Web site. An official announcement is expected Monday. Reached at home, Moore declined comment Monday morning but said he would hold a news conference later in the day. The Crimson Tide went 6-6 this season, finishing the season with three straight losses. Shula, a former Alabama quarterback, was winless in four tries against Auburn, his...

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala., Nov. 7 — In the solemn cathedral of college football devotion and instruction that is the Paul W. Bryant Museum here, a large painting dominates the main chamber. It is called “The Sack,” and it shows an encounter between a Notre Dame quarterback and a human locomotive in crimson and white. “I’ve never been hit like that before,” the quarterback, Steve Beuerlein, said after his near-lethal sack by Cornelius Bennett in 1986, in the University of Alabama’s first victory ever over his team. Daniel A. Moore, who painted “The Sack” and scores of other renditions of signal moments...

    WASHINGTON, April 17 — Frustrated with the performance of the American Red Cross, Alabama's governor has asked Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff for the federal aid necessary to let the state assume primary responsibility for operating its own emergency shelters in disasters. The move comes after months of criticism of the Red Cross, inspired by what even the organization's own leaders acknowledge was its inadequate response to Hurricane Katrina last year.

Logan Young was convicted of bribing a high school coach to get a top recruit for the Tide. (AP) Police hadn't yet confirmed the body was that of Logan Young, but his defense attorney said it was the Alabama booster. "We're treating it as a mystery homicide," Sgt.

    Fred Glasgow, the pastor of Marble City Baptist Church in Sylacauga, Ala., had not expected to meet the great man when he wrote him a letter. He was hoping perhaps to obtain an autographed picture for his son, Fred Jr., who was about to celebrate his 16th birthday. But miracles can happen, and so it was that the Glasgows found themselves in the University of Alabama football office on Jan. 22, 1983, shaking hands with the Crimson Tide's recently retired football coach, Paul "Bear" Bryant. And the preacher chided the coach for working at 10:30 on a Saturday morning instead...

    Fifty years later, Tommy Lewis remained afraid of being booed. Lewis is best remembered as the Alabama player who came off the sideline to tackle Rice's Dicky Maegle in the 1954 Cotton Bowl. Even today, as Mississippi and Oklahoma State prepare to meet in Friday's SBC Cotton Bowl Classic, that act is remembered as the most famous play in Cotton Bowl history and one of the most bizarre events in any sport. Maegle has enjoyed a lifetime of fame because of the play – an instant conversation piece. Lewis has suffered lifelong grief and embarrassment. Only this fall did Lewis...
