The “Alabama Revenge Tour: 2020” rolled on Saturday night as the Crimson Tide downed homestanding LSU is decisive fashion. If revenge is a dish best served cold, then Nick Saban force fed Ed Orgeron a trough of frozen gumbo with the “could-have-been-a-lot-worse” 55-17 thrashing.

Alabama football has been the most dominant college program in recent memory since acquiring Nick Saban in 2007. Since Saban arrived on campus, five national championships have made their way to Tuscaloosa.

I’ve defended prisons and denounced politicians. I’ve talked of death and being lost in this Jumanji of a year. I’ve celebrated the lives of two grandparents, a cousin and a feline fellow that was the embodiment of Fat Thor.

Unfortunately, the 85th edition of the Iron Bowl went about like I expected it to go. I did believe the Tigers would score more points and be able to move the football a little more efficiently, but the final score of 42-13 wasn’t surprising. Alabama is a much better team than Auburn in 2020 and they proved it.

As decisive as Alabama’s win over Auburn in the Iron Bowl was last Saturday, I somehow left the stadium with more questions than I did answers.

Before the University of Alabama and Auburn University meet on the gridiron, student veterans support groups from both universities will walk together to bring awareness to veteran suicide.

I know Alabama is once again No. 1 in the country. I know Mac Jones, Najee Harris and Devonta Smith are all possible award winners at their respective positions. I know there are many reasons to be thrilled college football has navigated the 2020 hellscape about as well as it could.

The Auburn Tigers continue to cement their reputation as one of the most wildly unpredictable football teams in the Southeastern Conference, if not the entire country.

The NFL and college football seasons are underway, giving Southerners our favorite time of year full of football and friends.

If you watch any long-running TV show, you’ll see most of the protagonists complete a character arch. An initial villain will slowly begin to show heroic traits or a story’s hero will eventually have you guessing if he is really the bad guy after all. That’s what makes the show great and lon…

In every single college football game, there is always some amount of good news and some amount of bad news. The proportions can be overwhelmingly one-sided, but there is most assuredly a silver lining among the refuse if you really, really want to see it. 

The college football coaching profession has been evolving rapidly over the last 30 years. It used to be the norm for a good head coach to spend 20 years at a school with varying degrees of success. However, when salaries started to skyrocket, fans and administrations began to lose patience …

If a football game is played in a practically empty forest, will anyone notice? Well, after attending the ’Bama/Texas A&M game Saturday, I can definitively say, “yes.”

It seemed like every talking head on every sports channel was picking the trendy upset of Kentucky over Auburn. I was told repeatedly that this 2020 Wildcat team was probably the best Mark Stoops has produced in the Bluegrass.  The offensive line was well represented among the All-SEC teams …

SEC football is back. Therefore, so is this edition of “Right, Wrong or TBD”: The article where I review the previous week and determine which predictions I had right, which I had wrong and which are still to be determined.

I write and talk about sports for a living. It’s what I do and I enjoy it. So, it might come as a bit of a surprise this is actually my favorite week of the year. It’s when all the talk can actually stop and the action can begin. There comes a point when all the bases are covered and no more…

When the SEC Basketball Tournament was canceled along with the college baseball season in mid-March, it was an incredibly odd and unsettling feeling. To experience the month of March without any Madness in the form of a buzzer beater or Cinderella story was definitely disheartening.

As the season approaches, it seems like now is as good of a time as ever to reach back into my (imaginary) bag of (nonexistent) fan mail and answer several of the (completely fabricated by me) hard-hitting questions my (grand total of zero) avid readers have:

The 2020 football schedules are set for Alabama, Auburn and all other SEC teams, along with COVID-19 attendance guidelines as the conference seeks to have a season in the face of an unending pandemic.

The Auburn Tigers took the first step Monday in what will undoubtedly be a very long journey by conducting the first organized practice in preparation for the 2020 college football season. There will be bumps in the road, unavoidable detours and even a few pitfalls along the way, but every j…

You look for patterns and themes in your daily life, really in the world around you. For as much of a craptastic carnival of that 2020 has become once you parse down through the political rhetoric, the rising coronavirus numbers and deaths, the perpetually offended and the “peaceful protests…

I’ll admit it: 2020 has landed its share of body blows on my poor torso and, quite frankly, done some damage. I’ve been beaten, battered and even staggered a time or two, but I’m still standing — well, proverbially of course.

You know those horror stories about individuals who hit the lottery? The ones where a guy strikes it rich on Mega Millions but ultimately loses it all because of horrible investments, mismanaged savings and greedy, opportunist family members. Well, I am beginning to see a parallel to that sc…

Years from now when we look back on the year 2020, we’ll undoubtedly remember it with an unprecedented range of emotions. I think it’s safe to say some aspects of our lives will forever be changed. That’s probably a good thing concerning many circumstances and it could very well be a bad thi…
