Two generals. The first one takes command of an army on June 1, 1862. He has 80,000 men at his disposal. Over the next year, he wins battles, always failing to win decisively, at a heavy cost while gaining very little ground. Within 13 months of command, this general has suffered over 80,000 cas...

Though there's some question as to whether it will be a direct sequel or something totally different. Rumor has it that Paramount really wanted to capitalize on the success of the Paranormal Activity franchise and produce a found-footage type movie.

Since I'm an Alabama fan I'm probably going to get raked over the coals for this, but the biggest reason why I don't watch the NFL as religiously as I watch college football is because of the parity that comes with the professional league.

Forget what Stabler or Namath did in the NFL. We're talking strictly college here. He owns practically every record in the Alabama books as far as a QB is concerned.
Can we now officially crown AJ McCarron as Alabama's greatest field general?
