alabama-football-uniform

Lots of Alabama Crimson Tide players raised their NFL Draft stock Monday night, especially on the offensive side of the ball. In their pummeling of Notre Dame, especially the way the OL and running game dominated a previously had been elite defense, some Alabama players made themselves a lot of money in the 42-14 shellacking.

Juniors Dee Milliner and Eddie Lacy announced their decision to enter the 2013 National Football League Draft on Friday morning. Alabama head coach Nick Saban announced that junior D.J. Fluker will also forego his senior season to enter the draft.

#3 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. #23 Penn State Nittany Lions: Brutally Honest Game Preview

College football has really done a much better job of pre-conference scheduling these days. Last week we had two national title contenders squaring off in the Oregon Ducks vs. LSU Tigers, and another solid offering in the Boise State Broncos vs. the Georgia Bulldogs.  This week is significantly weaker, but if this is as bad as the slate gets- I’ll take it.

Because next week you have LSU in another marquee game, this time versus conference foe, the Mississippi State Bulldogs. And two top 5 teams in the Florida State Seminoles vs. the Oklahoma Sooners. Sprinkle in a few conference games here and there, and before you know it- it’s conference season already the next week.

This game is an oddity before it even begins- both have a QB controversy, despite both teams having one signal caller clearly out-performing the other in week one.

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide: College Football 77 in 77

Here it is- the cherry (fitting crimson colored) on the top of the massive college football sundae that was the 77 in 77. I honestly am amazed I survived this. 77 teams in 77 days, and I finish with the SEC powerhouse, Alabama Crimson Tide. The league has produced five straight national champions- I’m saying a sixth in 2011. Other experts believe in the Sooners, but I say Roll Tide.

They’re solid on the OL, WR, RB, DL, LB, DB, ST, K, P, RS- and we shall see now about QB. The defense and special teams will be stellar. If they find the right signal caller, they’ll be ballin’ like Spaulding.
