Epic troll job, Carson. Well done.

10 things you shouldn't say to an Alabama fan | AL.com

7. Better coach: Mike Shula or Mike DuBose? Crimson Tide fans would probably prefer to forget these coaching tenures ever happened.

Mike Shula and it isn't even close. He may not have won a ton of games but comparing him to Dubose is disrespectful in every possible way.

Amari Cooper and Landon Collins voted unanimous All-American

The pair are two of five total Crimson Tide players to be named first-team All-Americans by one of the five NCAA-recognized lists (Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America, Walter Camp Foundation and Sporting News).

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said to be considering Michigan job - ESPN

According to multiple reports, Michigan has made a six-year, $49 million offer to Harbaugh. The offer was earlier reported by CBS5 in Arizona. The annual average pay of $8.17 million would make Harbaugh the highest-paid college football coach, surpassing Alabama's Nick Saban by more than $1.21 million.

Nick Saban has 1.2 million lost somewhere in his couch cushions.

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu of Oregon Ducks out for season due to knee injury - ESPN

Oregon star cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu suffered a severe knee injury during the Ducks' practice Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season, a source confirmed to ESPN. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu has a $3 million loss of value insurance policy, which has been paid for by the University of Oregon, according to a source. The senior is the cornerstone of Oregon's secondary and has already received numerous All-American team spots as well as being a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the country's top defensive back. Senior defensive back Dior Mathis, who spent the spring and fall battling with Troy Hill for the corner spot opposite Ekpre-Olomu, will likely move into Ekpre-Olomu's spot for the second-ranked Ducks' College Football Playoff matchup with No. 3 Florida State in the Rose Bowl.

Welp. As if it already wasn't headed in this direction to begin with, the loss of Oregon's top corner basically guarantees this game ends in a 50-54 final score.
