Alabama defensive line coach Karl Dunbar’s backpack—which held his playbook and laptop—was stolen from the team’s Atlanta hotel before this week’s national championship game against Georgia.
The Wolves whomped the Cavs last night, 127-99, as LeBron James played one of the spottiest games of his career. But for Jimmy Butler—heard here hollering in the background—the night’s real emotional stakes only came afterwards, as he watched the final moments of the college football championship. Karl-Anthony Towns…
Tua Tagovailoa turned the Alabama offense into something it hasn’t been in living memory: fun. The true freshman, cannon-armed, fleet-legged quarterback who hadn’t played a snap of football that wasn’t in garbage time came on at halftime against Georgia and utterly transformed the moribund Crimson Tide offense into a…
As is our tradition, it’s time for us to compare how broadcasters on radio & TV locally, nationally, and internationally called DeVonta Smith’s 41-yard overtime touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa:
Alabama overcame being shut out at the half to beat Georgia in overtime, 26-23, to win this year’s College Football Championship national championship.
A year and change into his first term in office, it’s still honestly kind of hard to tell why Donald Trump ran for president. At this point, we know enough about him to assume both 1) that it had nothing to do with any of the reasons he offered on the campaign trail and 2) that it’s probably something exponentially…
It’s time for everyone’s favorite tradition: the CPU vs CPU simulation of tonight’s national championship game, using the original Tecmo Super Bowl on NES with fully-updated rosters. CLICK THROUGH TO WATCH:
If you are not PUMPED UP and ready to THROTTLE MEDIOCRITY after watching cartoonishly burly Alabama strength coach Scott Cochran SHATTER Crimson Tide’s second-place trophy from last year’s College Football Playoff final with gravity and also a large hammer, then you’re not ready to TACKLE GREATNESS.
Two days after his team won its College Football Playoff semifinal and advanced to the national title game for the third straight year, Alabama head coach Nick Saban groused that there was only one week between semifinals and the championship. This has more or less been the case since the College Football Playoff…
Alabama manhandled top seed Clemson 24-6 in a downer of a Sugar Bowl unworthy of being the headliner to the double-OT Rose Bowl opening act, and now you’re all going to enjoy a week of gripes about the SEC and the Tide vs. Georgia national championship matchup. Our response to those complaints is the above GIF and a…
Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne pushes well past 300 pounds and bench presses 500. He is a large man. Here’s the large man catching two passes in five minutes—one of them from his own team, for a touchdown—and making us all very happy to be alive. Except for those of us who went to Clemson, and I didn’t go to Clemson.
Just go with it:
The first three teams announced for the college football playoff were no surprise. Clemson was number one, after their savage beatdown of Miami last night, and they were followed by Big 12 champion Oklahoma and SEC champs Georgia, who will play each other in the Rose Bowl.
The Auburn Tigers earned their biggest win in almost exactly four years this afternoon at Jordan-Hare Stadium, defeating Alabama in the Iron Bowl with a comprehensive performance ending in a 26-14 win.
Alabama’s 25th-ranked team faced off against Minnesota in one of today’s marquee men’s basketball games, only to see its entire bench ejected after this brouhaha that, after another foul and an injury, left the team to play more than ten minutes with just three players. AND THEY CAME BACK.
There are several interesting tidbits in ESPN’s profile of Lane Kiffin today, but the best ones are those on Kiffin’s relationship with former boss Nick Saban. There’s this one, about Kiffin continuing to text the Alabama coach even though he knows he’s not ever going to get any response:
Alabama football coach Nick Saban, a man who won’t even crack a smile while his team is beating some cupcake by 31 points, began Wednesday’s press conference with a quick little bit for the assembled media: Jeans are crazy these days, right?
Minkah Fitzpatrick is now out of tonight’s LSU-Alabama game, but not before targeting Russell Gage’s dick and balls as the Tigers receiver tried to hurdle the All-American:
Let it be known that if you’re going to commit a penalty that wipes off a turnover in the red zone, go all the way.
