Backup quarterback Blake Sims is helping the defense prepare for the Jan. 7 BCS Championship Game against top-ranked Notre Dame. "Blake Sims does a great job giving us a look," Clinton-Dix said. "He can run. Blake is fast. He knows how to get on the edge and he can also throw on the move. So he’s a great help in giving us a look." Sims is giving the defense a feel for what it will be like facing Everett Golson, the Fighting Irish's mobile redshirt freshman quarterback. "Their QB is very explosive," Clinton-Dix said. "So we’ve got to contain him and go out and have a great game."
Who has more national titles, Alabama or Notre Dame? Depends on who's counting | al.com
"As far as I'm concerned, I've always felt Notre Dame had the most and it would be a long time until anybody would catch them," said Wayne Atcheson, a former Alabama sports information director.

Don’t say anything,’" Foshee said. "He made the mistake of after a question saying something back, and Coach Saban really let him have it. He learned that lesson pretty quick."

Notre Dame secondary 'does a lot of things well,' says Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones | al.com
It's been about a year since Jones rose to the occasion when he was unexpectedly summoned to duty after senior Marquis Maze went down with an injury in the 2012 BCS National Championship.

"You really can't tell right now who is going to be that new person that's going to step up because to me, the way we play there's no difference between being a freshman and a senior here," he said. "It's just about when your number is called you've got to be ready to go."
