Penalties, Richardson do in Rebs

Ole Miss proved to be a hospitable guest Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Critical penalties, a slow first half and a busted tackle on Trent Richardson’s 85-yard touchdown reception proved to be too much on Saturday as the Ole Miss Rebels fell at No. 8 Alabama 23-10.

By the end of the game, the Rebels, who entered the game as the Southeastern Conference’s least-penalized team, committed 10 penalties for 106 yards. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)

Ole Miss is idle Saturday after playing five straight games including four at home. Nutt said that Ole Miss Head Athletic Trainer Tim Mullins will track the progress of the two players who suffered concussions in Saturday’s win over Kentucky each day.

Saban says talk about 2009 title win is over

The hiring of Nick Saban three years ago really started to pay dividends last season for the Alabama Crimson Tide. A program that is used to winning national titles under legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant was treated to yet another title last season when the Crimson Tide defeated Texas in the BCS Championship game.

If you ask Alabama fans about which team will win the title this year, the answer is simple, the Crimson Tide of course. But for Saban, last year’s team and what they accomplished is in the past. He’s more worried about the 2010 version and what this younger, but still talented group can accomplish. (August 23, 2010, Page 2B)
