Although Lindsey Smith, Jake Adams and I have remained close in the three-plus years since I left Pennsylvania, it’s still hard to get a sense of what’s going on for them on a day-to-day basis.

Before 2010 BCS championship game gave Alabama its 13th (or eighth or 24th or whatever you want to call it) national championship, the last Crimson Tide team to be crowned was done so Jan. 1, 1993. It was the Nokia Sugar Bowl that year and ’Bama defeated a celebrated and unbelievably arrogan…

If you have already listened to last week’s episode of Inside the Lines Podcast, you already know my thoughts on high school athletes returning to practice June 1. I am craving the return of sports as much as everyone else but I have to admit I’m a little worried an early return during the t…

Would you rather try to go for a school record against a team you know you'll beat or try to work on things you need to improve when you have the chance?

As the return of sports inches closer to reality, there are hurdles to be cleared outside of the coronavirus before we see the professionals back on the field. Major League Baseball was in headlines for the wrong reasons again last week for a disagreement about money between the owners and players.

I always see social media posts when people want to single out a family member or friend to celebrate birthdays or holidays but I never participated in those myself. I never have a problem with those posts and it certainly doesn’t mean I don’t care when it’s my friends’ birthdays or anything…

Heading into the 2005 Florida game, I think most ’Bama fans were pretty confident. However, that is nothing new. ’Bama fans always think we should beat anybody and everybody every time no matter unrealistic the circumstances.

When I rolled over to check the time on my phone in my Louisville, Kentucky, hotel room last Tuesday night, I already knew it had to be about 1 a.m. Of course, it was that exact time. After all, it’s always about 1 a.m. when I first mildly wake during the night.

Spring football was canceled, but the “transfer portal” (insert cool sound effect) is still functioning at maximum capacity. Hundreds of student-athletes have already or will soon find a new home and suit up for a different team in 2020.

My brother and I had an opportunity to ride over to Atlanta to watch Auburn take on Tennessee in the Georgia Dome in 2004. My brother-in-law was able to finagle some tickets (thank you Chris Champion) and it still ranks in my top 10 games ever attended.

Not every game in this weekly trip down memory lane of great Alabama games I have personally attended will be meaningful in deciding the SEC champion. That statement is definitely in full effect when discussing the ’Bama versus LSU game of 1998 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The NBA and the NCAA have seemingly worked together over the years to benefit each other from increased ticket sales to elite talent to high TV ratings. Each league has seen some positive impact from whatever rule changes happen between the levels of men’s basketball.

After months of anticipation, ESPN aired the first two episodes of “The Last Dance” on Sunday night, premiering the long-awaited documentary on Michael Jordan’s life and playing career. Basketball fans have gone a month without watching a game so everyone was hungry to tune in and the number…

An odd thing happened last week in the midst of all the sports stories detailing and lamenting how there are no sports stories to talk about. An actual, real-life event occurred that was timely and absolutely related to athletics.

All week I have been seeing posts from baseball and softball accounts across social media as teams are looking to honor their seniors on days that would have marked their final regular-season home games. I even saw one senior’s family set up an entire Senior Night celebration in its front ya…

America’s Team is far from the dream owner and general manager Jerry Jones wants for the storied franchise. Just four years removed from their 2016 season where they posted a 13-3 record and proved to be real threats as Super Bowl contenders, the Dallas Cowboys are holding onto what’s left o…

We often talk a lot about student-athletes needing to be careful about what they post on social media. It’s important for not only their recruiting journeys but also how they are seen by their coaches and communities. There’s no hiding on social media and student-athletes can assume everythi…
