Arrest Of Bama’s Barron A Bunch Of “Bull”

Alabama safety Mark Barron — the Tide’s leading tackler from a year ago — was arrested early yesterday morning on a misdemeanor charge of hindering prosecution.  Great timing as Bama kicks off spring practice today. 

Police officers in Mobile, Alabama — Barron’s hometown — were called to the scene of a car accident involving the player’s car.  We’ll let WALA-TV pick it up from there:

When the officer arrived, Mark Barron was on the scene.  He told the officer he had been at a nightclub on Airport Boulevard, when a person he only knew as “Bull” took his car without permission.

During the investigation, the officer determined that the drive was not “Bull,” but Barron’s cousin Jeremy Lang, and Land had been the driver to leave the scene of the accident.

When the officer asked Barron about the situation again, Barron continued to insist the driver of the car was “Bull.”

The officer said he gave Barron multiple chances to tell the truth.  The officer explained the consequences for Barron not telling the truth.  Barron still refused to change his story.

At least we know Barron’s no snitch.  But he was a second-team All-American last year.  And he’ll probably be doing some extra running as spring drills begin in Tuscaloosa.

Bama DB Transfers To South Alabama

Former five-star prospect BJ Scott will transfer from Alabama to South Alabama this offseason.  The redshirt junior-to-be will be able to play immediately for the Jaguars and is expected to start in their secondary.

The Crimson Tide got a boost this weekend when safety Mark Barron decided to return to Tuscaloosa for his senior season.

Scott played in 15 games for Alabama during his career.  His 2010 season ended with ankle surgery in November.

Beat Auburn.

South Carolina
Content provided by Garnet And Black Attack.

Garnet and Black Attack readers, I am a student at the University of Alabama and write pretty regularly over at Roll Bama Roll. I don’t know if you guys usually take down guest posts but I just wanted to give ya’ll a little insight from our side.

I know USC has already played Auburn once this year and knows what they are going up against, but i feel like at that point in the year it was a completely different football season to where we are now.

First off, I know Alabama blew it, just like we did against LSU. USC was the only team that deserved to take Alabama to the woodshed and rightfully did.

But this is not about Alabama, this is about beating Auburn.

The mindset of the Auburn program is simply to top Alabama, that is ALL they care about.

I believe this will give South Carolina a great advantage going into the SECCG being that many Auburn players, fans, and coaches will have a false sense of a season accomplished after taking down the 4th ranked team in the West.

Cam Newton is an absolute monster, but much like Ellis Johnson showing how to slow Alabama’a rushing game, I think Saban and Kirby Smart gave the blueprint of how to slow down the best professional athlete in college football this year.

Essentially Cliff Matthews and at least two linebackers will have to sell out every play to contain him on the ground. I believe we held him to something like 39 yards rushing which I believe USC can do the same.

Where USC has an advantage over what Alabama couldn’t stop is they have defensive backs that can contain the deep ball. The deep ball to Zachary completely sucked the life out of the Alabama defense much like Jeffery making Milliner and Mark Barron look like absolute ass bags out there in Columbia.

Offensively, USC is in a great spot to take down the tigers. Get enough out of Garcia to Gurley and Jeffery to post up points early then grind it out with the freak Lattimore and the OBC should be bringing the SEC title back to Columbia.

So make you guy’s first trip to Atlanta the best it can be and bring the same intensity to the Georgia Dome that you had in Williams-Brice Stadium when the Tide came to town and you can really take them out of their game.

Best of luck Gamecock supporters, you will have all of us cheering for you this Saturday without a doubt.

Bama Rips Curry, GSU 63-7

Playing against a first-year program — and an FCS program at that — there was little doubt that Alabama would devour Georgia State on ESPN last night.  And that’s exactly what the Crimson Tide did. 

And if you didn’t feel a little sorry for Bill Curry last night, well, you’re probably a Bama or Kentucky fan.

1.  Nick Saban played a lot of his young guys last night.

2.  The low level of fan excitement last night will change for next Friday’s Iron Bowl.

3.  Junior receiver Brandon Gibson was the big star of the night for Bama.

4.  As you might expect, the Tide graded out pretty well last night.

5.  And looking ahead to the Iron Bowl, Kevin Scarbinsky of The Birmingham News wonders “If the NCAA, FBI and TMZ can’t stop Auburn, can Alabama?”

6.  Trent Richardson and Barrett Jones should be ready to go against the Tigers.

7.  Tide safety Mark Barron hopes Cam Newton will be suited up for Auburn.  “I don’t want to play anyone when they’re not at their best.  Anytime you get a chance to go up against great athletes, for me that’s exciting.
