The nation is going nuts right now. Can you blame them? I mean the World Baseball Classic is in play, the NCAA tournament is about to officially begin, College Football teams have started spring practice, and Tiger Woods is trying to get back to his old self has he returned. But with all this chaos going on I can still only focus on one thing....has Alabama's luck turned?

So let me emphasize on this. What I mean by changing their luck is all their football trouble. It all started when Alabama got half ther wins taken away in 1993 a year after their National Title, then Alabama was put on probation and was not able to go to any bowls for I believe two years, and the we lost Dennis Franchione.

I am not even near done we also hired Mike Price who was fired so we forced to hire Mike Shula, and then we lost six times in a row to Auburn. I finally finish this by saying that even though we have received good recruiting classes we have been hustled down by the NCAA for the selling the books incident.

After all this Alabama has still been able to overcome adversity by hiring a new coach, get a great recruiting class, and win 12 games in Nick Saban's second year. Does this mean that Alabama has returned to the glory days?

I believe that they partially have but aren't all the way there yet. The reason I say that is we can mark new coach, great recruiting class, and great coaching staff of the list, but we have not yet been able to win a conference title or national title.

Yes I know it was Nick Saban's second year and you can't expect that kind of stuff in only two years especially with all the stuff he had to deal with. But I am just saying that even though I am a huge Alabama fan I can not say that Alabama has returned to the glory days just yet. I can promise you though that we will be back in the glory days within the next two or three years, trust me.

So to answer this question more easily, no we have not quite yet returned to the glory days. But we have overcome the tough adversity and been able to cope with the NCAA. We are on are way to the glory days though trust me.

I would like to apologize for my absence and me not being able to right articles for several weeks. You have to remember I am only 14 and I still have to go to school.
