Minnesota Vikings could be a landing spot for Alabama QB AJ McCarron

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has a hot girlfriend. But too bad AJ McCarron’s NFL draft stock isn’t as hot as Katherine Webb. Well, it’s luke warm. According to some NFL scouts his draft stock is high. But he has his detractors though too.

There were three NFL head coaches and three general managers in attendance at Alabama’s Pro Day. Were they see to AJ McCarron? Well, yes, no and maybe. The head coaches included Sean Payton (Saints), Marvin Lewis (Bengals) and Chip Kelly (Eagles).

Video: Katherine Webb sticks up for Musburger, ESPN apology was stupid

katherine-webb

The actual college football game was a total joke- the Alabama Crimson Tide totally crushed Notre Dame right from the start. The game was over at kickoff. Serves ESPN right for over-promoting the hell out of the game for the past month and change. So what captivated the viewers since the football was anything but interesting? Katherine Webb, Miss Alabama 2012 and girlfriend of Tide QB A.J. McCarron. And ironically an Auburn graduate.

Her, along with the hot mom of McCarron, Dee Dee Sonders got a TON of ESPN air time tonight, and with that they almost broke Twitter and the internet. And turned legendary sportscaster Brent Musburger into a national punchline. And wrongfully so. I posted the video after the game and pointed out the web making fun of Musburger, but I don’t think it was right. Musburger didn’t say anything offensive. And he certainly didn’t say anything any different from what us guys were thinking.

Webb thinks so too.

D’eaux Tigers! Alabama Blanks LSU to Claim National Title

Ever since the rematch between Alabama and LSU was announced at the conclusion of the NCAA football season, there has been a heated debate as to whether or not these two teams deserved to face each other in New Orleans.

After all, Alabama lost at home to LSU, and they didn’t even play for their conference championship in December. In contrast, Oklahoma State won the Big 12 and only lost one game on the road.

Even with all of that animosity toward their presence in the game, Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide rolled into hostile territory in New Orleans and executed a defensive game plan that was one of the smartest ever displayed on this big of a stage. They held LSU to 92 total yards of offense, and only allowed the Tigers to cross the 50-yard line once en route to a 21-0 shutout victory to claim the school’s ninth national championship. AJ McCarron threw for 234 yards, and Trent Richardson rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown in the victory.

Alabama Demolishes Florida, Puts Nation on Notice in Big Win

In what was supposed to be a showcase of two of the best defenses in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide steamrolled the Florida Gators 38-10 on Saturday night in Gainesville. Trent Richardson racked up 181 rushing yards and scored twice, and Courtney Upshaw returned an intercepted John Brantley pass 45 yards for a touchdown as the Tide dealt the Gators a crushing defeat, especially on a day when the SEC East was right there for the taking.

#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

Alabama basketball

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.
