Long Time Coming - Roll Tide Roll

Whew. Been waiting for this for a damn long time.

37-21

The Alabama Crimson Tide, National Champions for the 13th time!

Roll Tide Roll!!!!

BCS Championship Game: Alabama Crimson Tide's thunderous hits struck the Texas Longhorns - ESPN:
"PASADENA, Calif. -- Nick Saban's rise to the top of the college football world has been built one thunderous tackle at a time. The wins have kept coming because the hits have kept coming, whether Saban was coaching in Baton Rouge or Tuscaloosa.

His defenses don't just shut offenses down. They beat offenses up."

Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy reveals he suffered two cracked ribs against Florida - ESPN:

"PASADENA, Calif. -- Greg McElroy never had to leave the game. The Alabama junior never had to leave his team in the hands of an untested backup. But it turns out that Texas' Colt McCoy wasn't the only injured quarterback at the Rose Bowl on Thursday night.

'I cracked my ribs in the third quarter against Florida,' McElroy said outside the locker room. 'Two of them -- the ninth and the 10th. Left side. It's bad. I got it numbed up before the game and it was killing me at halftime.'"

Moore ready to erect Saban’s statue | TideSports.com | The Tuscaloosa News | Tuscaloosa, AL
Beside the Walk of Champions outside Bryant-Denny Stadium, in the north end zone plaza, the Crimson Tide’s national championship coaches are honored with a bronze statue. But beside the statue of 1992 national title coach Gene Stallings, there is an empty place for UA’s next national championship coach.

Director of Athletics Mal Moore was asked if he would want Saban’s statue erected immediately.

“It was put there for this, and I will recommend to the president that we go forth,” Moore said. “Well, we’ll talk about (doing it immediately), but yeah. Hell yeah.”
