Alabama Football Film Room: Reuben Foster

It took the human missile a couple years, but Foster finally earned regular starts after correcting his tackling form and staying healthy. With the departure of Reggie Ragland, Foster becomes the unquestioned leader of the linebacker corps. Many of you probably remember the recruiting saga of Reuben Foster.  He initially committed to Alabama before transferring to Auburn High School and flipping his commitment to Auburn University.  Many months and an Auburn tattoo - which he turned into a tribute for a murdered cousin - later, Foster flipped back to Alabama. He saw playing time right...

Entitlement, Thy Name is Maurice

The problem isn’t Maurice wanting to go to UGA. It’s his believing he is entitled to do so. The drama surrounding Maurice Smith and his desire to transfer to Georgia has made national news and, predictably, most of the coverage and commentary has revolved around that cherished click magnet: the evil that is Nick Saban and the Alabama program. Plenty has and will be written about the specifics. Yesterday, we discussed the rules that are in place and laid out the case for both sides. As noted, Alabama is well within its rights to deny Smith a waiver that will allow him to play...

2016 Alabama Football Unit Previews: Outside Linebackers

Sacks, sacks, and more sacks Last season, Alabama fielded on of the most dangerous front sevens that college football has ever seen. They were a flurry of speed and ferociousness that surpassed even the usual expected nastiness of a Crimson Tide linebacking corps. So as not to bore you with a 3000 word article, I’m breaking this up into two articles: the outside linebackers and inside linebackers. Theoretically, in a base 3-4, Alabama uses four designations— Sam, Mike, Will, and Jack— for each starting linebacker. The Sam is the "strong outside linebacker," one who typically will line...
