It was the one that happened in March 1993. When it arrived in the southeast it was about as powerful as a Category 3 hurricane, producing 12-foot storm surges along the Florida coast as well as tornadoes. Places as far south as Mobile got up to 4 inches of snow, while Birmingham got slammed with ...

It's about the group Samuel Adams founded and ran throughout the 1760s-1770s. Judging by the trailer, it looks as if History has done their best to make it look as hip as possible.
It premieres tonight at 8:00 central.

I think most of us can agree that a blowout is when a team gets beat by 17-21 points or more. I think Alabama might be able to print some shirts when it comes to this. Why? Just take a look at the list of teams who have beaten us by 17+ points in the last 10 years.
Arkansas: 10-27 (1...

Just saw that on Twitter. What a sad story this is. Richardson clearly has the talent to succeed in the NFL as his rookie season showed us. However, it seems as if he's gone ahead and checked out for his career because he got paid. This happens a lot. And sadly it has happened to him. ...

Probably one of the sloppiest games ever played between Alabama and LSU. LSU had over 100 penalty yards and Alabama wasn't too far behind.
The most memorable aspect of the game was no doubt redshirt freshman Shaun Alexander's 291 rushing yards and 4 rushing TDs. Almost all of that yardage cam...
