The Alabama basketball team may have turned the corner — again.
The Alabama men’s basketball team has had many opportunities to lose its last four games. In each of those contests, the Tide took a large lead, only to see it dwindle to near nothing.
Until I can properly digest the outcome of the national championship game between LSU and Clemson and this week’s basketball game between Auburn and Alabama, I’m taking a look back to 2019 and remembering some of the legendary sports figures who are no longer with us.
After so much talk about “giving” in the months leading up to Christmas, the weeks after have always been about “returning.” Usually it’s an ugly sweater or defective coffee maker, of course, but this year there was one potential return that kept everyone buzzing: The possible return to Alab…
As we come to the close of 2019, it’s only natural to look back at what has transpired over the past year. I made some annual predictions about college football back in April and it’s time to revisit those prognostications.
As if you won’t see this type of article hundreds of times as Jan. 1 approaches, here are my thoughts on various sports-related New Year’s resolutions.

Tuesday has to be the least respected and appreciated day of the week. Mondays signal new beginnings, Wednesdays let you know you are halfway home, Thursdays have the best TV programming, Fridays usher in the weekend, Saturdays are all for football and Sundays are made for chilling.
Alabama’s Mac Jones made the first start of his Crimson Tide career at quarterback, stepping in for an injured Tua Tagolvailoa. Jones was 18 of 22 for 235 yards and three touchdowns in just over two quarters of work as the Tide defeated Arkansas, 48-7, Saturday night.
The second-quarter play seemed rather innocuous at the time. When Alabama’s Tua Tagvailoa was sacked for a minor loss, there was no writhing in pain from the star quarterback. In fact, he actually took another snap.
To the surprise of college football fans around the world Saturday, the game in Athens, Georgia between UGA and South Carolina was actually worth watching. Well, let me rephrase: it was worth seeing to the result.
Big plays on offense and special teams helped No. 1 Alabama to a 47-28 road victory against No. 24 Texas A&M at Kyle Field on Saturday in College Station, Texas.
Last Saturday, Alabama flexed its offensive muscles in a way that would make the Hulk blush. Tua Tagovailoa was deadly accurate and Devonta Smith was extraordinarily X-Box-ish. Those two made records fall like an earthquake in Motown.
Alabama wideout DeVonta Smith had himself more than a day as he shattered multiple school records and tied the Southeastern Conference receiving touchdowns mark Saturday. Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa also broke several records of his own as No. 2 Alabama beat Ole Miss, 59-31 in Br…
Tua Tagovailoa made Alabama history by throwing five touchdown passes for the second consecutive week and the third time in his career as No. 2 Alabama defeated Southern Miss, 49-7, on Saturday. The Crimson Tide moves to 4-0, while the Golden Eagles drop to 2-2 in their 2019 campaign.
The No. 2-ranked Alabama football team put up 603 yards of total offense in its 62-10 win against New Mexico State in the Crimson Tide’s home opener inside Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday. Alabama moved to 2-0 on the season while the Aggies dropped to 0-2.
A stout defense and stellar quarterback play propelled the No. 2 Alabama football team to a 42-3 win over Duke in the 2019 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium ON Saturday. The Crimson Tide improved to 1-0 to start the season and 6-0 all-time in Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games.
With just a few days until college football’s official 2019 kickoff, I now present to you my final, set-in-stone, for-real-this-time predictions. Feel free to use these picks at your local gambling establishment. You can thank me later.
The clock is ticking and we are now only 408 hours (give or take depending on what time you’re actually reading this) away from Auburn’s long-awaited Duck-hunting trip in the state of Texas.
The Reeltown Quarterback Club will be hosting its biggest fundraiser of the year Saturday, Aug. 17 when it hosts a Cow Patty Bingo at the high school baseball field.
Football is in the air again in Tuscaloosa as the University of Alabama opened its 2019 fall camp Friday afternoon. The Crimson Tide hosted a two-hour practice in helmets and shorts at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields.
