Tide handles Rams, but not without blemishes

It wasn’t a shutout. No one who closely follows college football thought it would be. However, Alabama 41, Colorado State 23 Saturday night before a sold-out Bryant-Denny Stadium crowd did show that Jeremy Pruitt and Nick Saban’s defense can function against a hurry-up, no-huddle offense with an accurate quarterback and a future NFL receiver. But it did not do so with consistency.

TI on the Town: Peterson is a beast

The long-time slogan for the city of Snellville has been “Where everybody is somebody.” That is up for debate, I suppose, but no one will argue the fact that most everybody who started on both sides when Brookwood’s Broncos hosted the Packers of Colquitt County has some skills in the game of tackle football. Both sides featured a bevy of young men who will play at the next level, and that showed Friday night when Colquitt was upset by the hosts, 42-25. Here are some observations.

Jackson to Alabama

Versatile Boling, Texas star Vernon Jackson has committed to Alabama. The 6-2, 240-pound Jackson selected the Tide over Texas A&M and TCU during a high school pep rally this afternoon. Jackson, who plays quarterback, is projected by many as a linebacker in college. In limited playing time on defense last season, Jackson flashed great potential. Back in the summer, he was a standout at Bama's camp. More later.
