TUSCALOOSA, Alabama - University of Alabama student-athletes are continuing to shine as students, according to the latest Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores released Tuesday by the NCAA.
Three Alabama teams - men's golf, women's golf and women's tennis - produced perfect scores of 1,000, and scores were down for only four teams: baseball (minus-3), softball (minus-3), women's swimming (minus-1) and volleyball (-10).
The national cut-off standard is 930. As has been the case for several years, no Alabama team is close to that score.

DENVER--The Steelers were beat, it was too early to worry about the Patriots, and last Monday afternoon, Doug Reeves was one of the only ones in Denver who wasn’t happy about football. Of course, Reeves had been in Denver for 30 years, and he liked the Broncos. But in the Irish Hound Pub, Reeves wasn’t thinking about the previous day's upset or whether Tim Tebow would come through in the second playoff. After all, his team made Tebow cry.

In the 2013 BCS National Championship game in Miami Gardens, Florida between #1 Notre Dame and #2 Alabama, the stage was set for a slugfest between two of the top programs in the nation with Alabama having 9 AP National Titles and Notre Dame having 8 AP National Titles. Notre Dame's last title was in 1988 when they went undefeated under Coach Lou Holtz with Alabama being #17. Notre Dame became the first unranked team at the beginning of a season to play for the national title. In previous meetings, the Irish dominated with a 5-1 record with Alabama's lone win against ND coming in 1986 with a 28-10 win at Legion Field in Birmingham.
What an amazing turn out this weekend!! We had people pulling up with trailers of donations from all over Colorado, cars packed to the brim, and then some. We had some tireless volunteers put in some unbelievable time this weekend, some working 2 DAYS STRAIGHT. We're tallying up the funds from this weekend, & I don't want to ruin the surprise but it was looking to be FANTASTIC!!
A huge thank you to everyone who came out this weekend: bands, volunteers, Moe's, friends, family, other school's alums & fans, party people, etc. I hope you all had fun too!
