Awards


I know the popular mantra at Alabama is that we're all about winning championships instead of individual awards, but I am seriously rooting for Mark Ingram to win the Heisman and for some of our other players to win the awards they're in competition to win.  I think Coach Saban could and would use this to help recruiting.  Despite hiring Coach Saban and our accomplishments of late, we're still making up ground nationally with recruits and there's no better way to gain exposure than to win championships and to have high profile players.  I know some of you will disagree with me about Alabama needing to make up ground nationally, but I think it's true.  While we've come along way since 2006--we are recognized as a monster program again--we're honestly only two years removed from being a team that most teenagers outside of the Southeast knew nothing about, and a team few teenagers outside of Alabama knew nothing about.  We were knocked for promoting our tradition, which is why Coach Saban said the focus was not on what we've done but what we're doing to prepare to be champions in the future. 

So I say, Go Ingram!  Win the Heisman.  Let's get some hardware, increase our exposure, and attract even more recruits than we're already attracting.  It will only help the Alabama program.
