    The Alabama Crimson Tide paid a visit to the White House the other day and it turned out to be one of those uniquely American moments. For the record I happen to be a Tennessee Volunteer fan but what the Crimson Tide did at the White House transcends football rivalries even Southeastern Conference football rivalries. Coach Nick Saban gladly accepted President Trumps invitation and said the entire national championship team would attend regardless of political proclivities. Coach Saban addressed it and just said, Hey, were doing this regardless of your political thoughts, offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher told...

    The University of Alabama champion Crimson Tide football team showed up for their day at the White House on Tuesday, with several following Coach Nick Saban in saying it was an honor. You know, not many people get invited to the White House, so not many people get invited to see the president and meet the president. So this is a special day for our team. A team that is being honored here because of their achievements in terms of winning the college football national championship, which makes me very proud, said six-time championship winner Saban. A special thanks to...

    It's only fitting that Atlanta, home to the SEC title game, is hosting the all-SEC College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T. No. 4 Alabama didn't play for the SEC title this year because it didn't win the SEC West, but the Tide will have a chance to finish the season as the best team in the conference and the country when they face SEC champion and No. 3 seed Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Georgia, which will be playing roughly 70 miles from its campus in Athens, will be the first team to play a national championship game in...

    Up until one week ago, the worst thing one could claim about Judge Roy Moore was that he stood for the Ten Commandments as a judge and ticked off the ACLU. While arguments exist constitutionally around that particular matter, Moore's actions in doing so were certainly not indicative of a man with a weak character who would exploit young ladies. In fact, he stood for something and risked losing a political position. Another matter that put Moore's political post at risk was his stance on marriage. Again, he didn't go along to get along. He stood for what he...

    Ronald Nelson from Memphis, Tennessee, is a senior at Houston High School. He was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools--that's Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Columbia, Brown, Cornell, and UPenn--along with Johns Hopkins, Stanford, and Vanderbilt, among a few other schools. While any of these schools are fantastic options, Nelson made headlines for another reason: he turned them all down. Nelson will be attending the University of Alabama this fall, as a member of the school's honors program.While it may seem shocking that a student would turn down a prestigious university for a state school, Nelson actually showed impressive maturity...

    In recent presidential primary cycles, the influence of Southern states -- with the exception of Florida, whose "Southern status" is perhaps more locational than anything else -- has been minimal. While pundits like to say that GOP presidential nominees have relied heavily on a "red state" electorate based in the South, that same base has had little to say in determining the nominee. After all, neither John McCain nor Mitt Romney had much in common with the region. Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp sensed that voter turnout intensity in the region could be stronger in November 2016 if...

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. If you could tap into Nick Sabans fondest football dreams, youd probably find the Alabama football coach fantasizing about shutouts and cartilage-rattling tackles and a relentless pass rush. Touchdowns would be down the wish list. But on a surreal November night when the Iron Bowl scoreboard read 55-44 an abomination to the Pat Dye generation Saban could deal with it. Because his team had the 55, and Auburn had the 44. His team has the Southeastern Conference Western Division title, and the Tigers dont. His 11-1 team should still be No. 1 in the College...

    Alabama's New $9 Million Football Facility Is Like Something Out Of MTV Cribs Tony Manfred Jul. 22, 2013, 11:24 AMTide TV The University of Alabama recently spent $9 million renovating its football facility. Last week, they unveiled it in a video tour on the school athletic department website. It's spectacularly over the top. There are arcade games, pool tables, 30-foot-long hot tubs, and much more. In big-time college football, having shiny new facilities is a huge recruiting tool. And it's clear that Alabama included every bell and whistle they could find in order to woo the best high school players...

    20 Cool Things About Mobile, Alabama That I Didn't Know Before Last Week Julie Zeveloff Jun. 24, 2013, 6:17 PM Julie Zeveloff/Business Insider Mobile, Alabama, got pretty miffed several months back when I included it on a list of "miserable" cities, based on health and wellness statistics from Gallup. So when a local mayoral candidate invited me down to prove me wrong, I booked a flight. I'd never been to Mobile before, and figured it would be a good chance to learn about a new city beyond a set of numbers. I won't say that I got an unbiased view:...

    I never had any problems in the short time I lived in the Deep South. My co-workers in Savannah, Ga., told me at times that I was nice for a Yankee, which is to say that thanks to Southern hospitality, I was very politely well-tolerated. Still, there were times I felt as if I needed a passport. I also had never seen an entire aisle at the grocery store dedicated to grits, the way they had it at the Piggly Wiggly. And while that life was a while ago, it was enough to give a sense of some of the...

Like all proper fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, he maintains an abiding hatred of Southeastern Conference rivals Auburn and Tennessee. But there is a third member of his unholy fan trinity, and always has been. "Oh, I hate Notre Dame," Pike said. "I never pull for them." On Nov. 3, Pike and about 50 other Alabama fans were in Louisiana getting ready to watch the Tide play LSU the most anticipated game of the year. But before the game, they were glued to...
