    Alabama, in context: Putting the 2012 champs in their historical place

    Great article here: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot...storical-place

    Some amazing perspective here - this part stood out to me:
    The Crimson Tide have always been defined by defense, but 2012 also produced one of the most productive offenses in Alabama history, one that obliterated school records for points (542), yards (6,237) and touchdowns (71). The Crimson Tide also produced two 1,000-yard rushers, Yeldon and Eddie Lacy, for the first time in school history, as well as the most efficient passer in the nation, AJ McCarron, the first Bama quarterback with 30 touchdown passes in a season.

    Despite its conservative, salt-of-the-earth reputation, the offense thrived on balance, averaging 227.5 yards per game rushing and 218 yards passing, and was one of only five that went over 3,000 yards by both ground and air.
    DISCLAIMER: I hereby reserve the right to discuss any game on the Alabama schedule I wish, at any time during the season, as I am not a part of the Crimson Tide football program. I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. 2009-2014, crimsonaudio

    Lurch Backwater!

    We weren't very impressive, were we?

    One flaw... his article references a link with Cooper being 1 yard shy of 1000; however, the NCAA has him listed right at 1000. It's 1 yard, true, but it's a milestone yard.

    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    11 TD's....wow. Not even Julio did that in a single season.
