Darius Paige, a little known defensive line recruit, has committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Paige stars for Pensacola (Fla.) Booker T. Washington High School, and has been a relative unknown until this point, likely due to his film not being distributed to the major recruiting services or even YouTube. His other major offers are from Louisville and Kentucky. Paige stands 6'4" and weighs 285 pounds, which would make him a defensive tackle for most schools but, in Alabama's 3-4 alignment, he will likely play the 5-technique end position.Darius Paige Commits To Alabama - SBNation.com The Tide picks up another commitment this week, this time adding some much needed defensive line depth. Via al.com: "The reason why I decided to commit to them is they'll stick with me, they have a good winning program, and it's kind of close to home." Paige recorded 97 tackles, including 32 for loss, three sacks, and three forced fumbles as a Junior. Welcome aboard. Rivals Profile - Scout Profile - ESPN Profile

2009 Alabama Crimson Tide Running Plays I was actually just looking for a clip of Roy Upchurch destroying that poor Virginia Tech DB for a touchdown, and came across this.

In the old days, Bama players needed permission from the boss to get married. Many refused to go see him and ask the question, preferring to disappoint their girlfriends than engender Coach Bryant's wrath. Listen in on Crimson Replay's Time Capsule podcast as Jimmy Fuller, who played on the line for the Tide in the mid-1960s, shares the ordeal he went through to get Coach Bryant's blessing.
Screw the Rose Bowl. This will be much more exciting.
$2000 fine and 180 days in jail, but how much will this reallt cost him in terms of his salary with the Raiders? Come on Ro, get your ish together!
