    Alabama's National Championship season was one for the story books. They were the first team in college football history to defeat the last 5 national champions in one season (Texas '05, LSU '06, Florida '07, LSU '08, Florida '09). Also they were the first team in the SEC to go undefeated and win the National Title since Tennessee's '99 BCS Title. They hope to make a run again this year going into the season #1 and the overall favorite by the media.

    Offense (8 Returning Starters)

    Alabama's offense has the potential to be the most productive in school history. Led by Heisman winner Mark Ingram the rush offense shouldn't lose a step. Even though he's technically the back-up, Trent Richardson could still start for any team in the country and you can look for him to put up some big numbers as well this season. RS-Fr. Eddie Lacy and RS-Jr. Demetrius Goode will also be getting some carries to spell the Tide's top 2 backs. The passing attack will only be better this year with Greg McElroy starting this year as a seasoned veteran compared to last year while continuing his undefeated streak as a starter. Obviously the monstrous Julio Jones will be his biggest (physical) target but Marquis Maze shows the quickness and agility to make guys miss when he has the ball in his hands. Darius Hanks proved to be an excellent player in the slot and will be even more involved this year. The offensive line will replace to starters but one of the replacements is the mammoth 6'6 340 lbs DJ Fluker.

    Defense (3 Returning Starters)

    The defense, although missing a lot of starters from last year, could be even better this year. One thing noticably different this year is the amount of athleticism up front. Chapman is 50 lbs lighter than the man he replaced from last year (Terrence Cody) but double teams are needed just as much for him. Marcell Dareus while getting a great bit of playing time last year was not a starter but he has already shown to be a force for the defense this year. The Linebacker stable for Alabama returns 1 starter from last year (Nico Johnson) and 1 starter from 2 years ago (Donta Hightower). Hightower went down for the season last year in the 4th game but after watching him in the spring you can tell that last years injury has zero effect on him. Jerrell Harris will get his much anticipated start at the Sam LB position (LOLB) and Courtney Upshaw will be taking over the Jack LB spot (ROLB). The secondary got relief when Robby Green, who was previously suspended for the season, was reinstated by the NCAA and cleared of charges for his unknown offense. Him and Mark Barron are the only 2 returning starters in the secondary. At the corner positions, True-So. Dre Kirkpatrick and RS-So. BJ Scott will hold down those spots after proving worthy in the spring. LSU transfer Phelon Jones, JUCO Dequan Menzie, and True-Fr. Demarcus Milliner will be great replacements if needed.

    2011 Alabama 12-2 (8-1)
    Sugar Bowl Winners
    SEC Champions


    Alabama comes into this season after winning their 2nd consecutive BCS Title and NCAA record 14th national title. Alabama is also riding into this season with the nation's longest current win streak with 28 consecutive wins. Tis year will be somewhat opposite of last with Alabama returning more starters on defense than offense. Either way this team should be the favorite to win it all again and become the first team to ever win 3 straight national titles.

    Offense (6 Returning Starters)

    Alabama a new group of starters behind a veteran offensive line that knows ow to push defenses around. Even though the new starters have some big shoes to fill, a lot of them are expected to flourish. So. QB AJ McCarron will start this season but has only dropped back to pass 4 times in his career. Jr. HB Trent Richardson will get the majority of carries and could very well be a Heisman candidate at the end of the season. So. Eddie Lacy and Sr. Demetrius Goode will spell get some carries while Richardson rests. The receivers will be led by the quick and elusive Sr. Marquis Maze. Starting on the other side will be Sr. Brandon Gibson who didn't play a whole lot last year but still had 2 TDs. The 3rd WR for Alabama will be different combinations of Michael Bowman, Kenny Bell, and Kendall Kelly who are all rs-So.

    Defense (8 Returning Starters)

    Returning 8 starters for a defense that played great when it needed to last year is really gonna help this team win. Jr. Damion Square and rs-So. Darrington Sentimore are both new DE starters but should both be able to learn from Sr NT Josh Chapman. So. Ed Stintson as moved from back-up JACK to starting at SAM. Sr. Courtney Upshaw returns as the starting JACK. Sr. Donta Hightower and Jr. Nico Johnson also return at the MIKE and WILL positions respectively. The secondary will be led by junior corners Dre Kirkpatrick and BJ Scott and senior safeties Robby Green and Mark Barron. They lead a group that totaled 17 INTs last season.
