LOOK: Alabama fan already has custom license plate updated for latest national title


The numbers 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017 won’t fit on one license plate, so this will have to do.

Alabama now has five national titles in the last nine years, and this Crimson Tide fan driving around in his or her Mercedes-Benz wants everyone to know it.

As Cecil Hurt points out, this has to be some kind of record turnaround time for the Alabama Department of Motor Vehicles. It has barely been a month since the Crimson Tide defeated Georgia for the national championship.

Then again, anyone driving a Mercedes-Benz can probably afford to have the plate expidicted. It also won’t get past any Alabama fan that the Crimson Tide have won two of their titles in stadiums sponsored by that car brand.

Although the plate also won’t make statistical sense after the next football season because it will either be five titles in 10 years with a loss or 6 titles in 10 years if the Crimson Tide manage to win another national championship.

Over the nine-year stretch, Nick Saban has only lost 12 total games while winning more than 100. His teams have also survived two playoff systems both with computers and human selection.

Three shots were holed from the fairway on par-4 holes for eagles at the Honda Classic Saturday, one of them by a young man who just might be the next big thing in golf: Sam Burns.

Even Justin Thomas admits it. While the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year has won seven times in three years on Tour, the fact that two of them have come in Malaysia and two more in Hawaii has left his resume a bit on the light side. Winning the Honda Championship on Sunday would go a long way to change that. Thomas shot a tournament-best 31 on...

If unheralded German Peter Gojowczyk had his way, he’d play an American in every round of every tournament for the rest of his career. Gojowczyk added another red-white-and-blue notch to his late-blooming resume with a solid 7-6 (3), 6-3 victory over Steve Johnson Saturday afternoon to reach the final of the Delray Beach Open. Gojowczyk had already...

Tiger thinks he has a shot at Honda but Sunday rally seems unrealistic

Tiger Woods is still thinking like he once did, imagining a Sunday climb over the 10 names that are above his on the leader board. The only way to win the Honda Classic, however, is to start playing like old times, too. Remember the 2012 Honda? That was four back procedures ago for Tiger. He came to PGA National as the No. 1 player in the world, and...
