Nick Saban is ecstatic that his Crimson Tide doesn't have to fight off the arrows of being in the college football playoff penthouse, but it doesn't mean the adversity is absent. Injuries, a run game stopped by LSU and other questions abound.....YET, Bama is still unbeaten and #2 in America. Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tider Insider talk about the Mississippi State game upcoming plus a recruiting update.
It is the 100th meeting between Alabama and Tennessee but this rivalry has been anything but as the Tide has won the last 10 meetings although in 2015, they trailed with under 6 minutes to go. Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tider Insider discuss the rivalry, what to look for and provide a recruiting update on the prospects in town plus who is considering Alabama right now.
Relentless is what the "R" stands for in recruiting since Nick Saban has captained the Tide ship for 11 years. With a new December early signing period, the on campus visits in the meat of the SEC schedule become more crucial than normal. It starts this week with Arkansas coming to Tuscaloosa. Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tider Insider have more on the players Bama has an eye on and the talent making plans to check out the Capstone. Also, a preview of the Arkansas game.
Alabama wants to have the exact recipe it has had the previous two SEC games in which they have won by a combined score of 125-3. The message two weeks ago was "don't just win, but defeat your opponent". That message is being preached again and again as the 2017 season progresses. Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tider Insider discuss last week's game, Texas A & M plus the latest recruits who witnessed the Rebel rousing.
That was the message last week from Alabama head coach Nick Saban to his team. That category 5 stormlike performance by Bama showed a glimpse of the talent and potential of the Tide. Now, the thinking is.....can it be done in back to back weeks? Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of TiderInsider.com have thoughts on that plus Nick Saban and a recruiting update and who is visiting Tuscaloosa this weekend.
It was one of the most dominant performances of the Nick Saban era at Alabama. The Tide blistered Vanderbilt 59-0 in the Music City in a game where the score did NOT indicate the superior play of the victor. Six Alabama runners had over 48 yards, records were set and the Tide took a stride towards their annual goal. Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tiderinsider.com share their thoughts along with Nick Saban's thoughts after the game.

Alabama's week three will be far more formidable than week two as Colorado State visits Tuscaloosa. This is one of nine bowl teams on Bama's schedule for 2017 (tied for third most in the country). Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tider Insider dissect the Tide from last week's win and what to look for heading into Saturday night at Bryant Denny stadium.
After such a dramatic stage in the first game against Florida State, Alabama finds themselves in a "typical" second game contest with Fresno State. However, a closer look shows that this contest is far more important than at first glance. The game against the Noles was costly from a bodycount standpoint and it exposed more concern for the Tide's passing game. Scott Griffin of Tide and Tiger and Rodney Orr of Tider Insider take a look.
It is the greatest match-up of the modern area for a first game in college history....at least as far as rankings go. #1 Alabama and #3 Florida State at a brand new venue in the Mercedes Benz stadium in Atlanta. Two talented, experienced Qb's, nasty defenses and coaches are in the top four in the business right now patrolling the sidelines in the college game. Scott Griffin and Rodney Orr discuss the end of Bama's fall camp and previews this game.
