Alabama has shut out its bowl opponents and claimed the national championship three times in the football program's long and storied history. As we all know, the most recent instance was the 21-0 humiliation of LSU in the 2011 BCS National Championship game. The instance prior was the 1963 Orange Bowl when the Tide blanked Oklahoma 17-0. The very first time was the 1931 Rose Bowl when Alabama demolished Washington State 17-0. Recently, the WSU library uploaded a four minute film of this game onto YouTube which I discovered doing research for Remember the Rose Bowl. There's more info at that site as well as on the YouTube page. The main thing you need to know is Alabama is in the white uniforms.

A federal appeals court in Atlanta sided today in favor of Daniel Moore in the most significant issues of the University of Alabama's 7-year-old case against the Birmingham artist. The university had claimed that Moore's paintings of Alabama football violated the school's trademark rights. The 11th U.S. Circuit of Appeals upheld a district court's ruling that Moore's paintings and prints are protected by the First Amendment, and reversed the lower court's decision by also protecting Moore's prints on calendars.

Artist Daniel Moore wins key issues in appeals case over Alabama paintings | al.com Daniel Moore jumped the shark about 10 paintings (this year ZING!) ago, but glad to see he's winning. The lawsuit against him has to be one of the most boneheaded decisions by the University since Mike Price, from a waste of time and resources angle to just plain old public relations. Let it go already.

Alabama lands commitment from JUCO lineman Leon Brown | al.com "I talked to Coach Stoutland and Coach Saban and they both said they were proud about my decision and couldn't wait to get me down there," Brown told BamaOnline. "I play left tackle- they like the way I play and feel like I have a chance to come in and contribute." And the recruiting news just keeps rolling in. Brown makes commitment number 17 for the 2013 class, and is a pretty interesting target for us. We've talked plenty here on RBR about the targeting and signing of JUCO players and the expectation that they will fill an immediate hole on the roster (and given the track record of guys like Terrence Cody, James Carpenter, and DeQuan Menzie, it's been a pretty productive philosophy), so you have to wonder what this says about how the staff views the depth along the offensive line. With Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack graduating, only one more year of eligibility for D.J. Fluker (plus the prospect of an early departure for the NFL), and the continued knee issues of the Kouandjio brothers, the future looks a bit shaky along the line and gut instinct tells me this signing is a response to that.
