ALABAMA DEGREES: Alabama's success on the field over the past two seasons under the direction of head coach Nick Saban has also coincided with the Crimson Tide's success in the classroom. An impressive 12 Crimson Tide players will take the field in 2009 with degrees already in hand, including Eryk Anders (Health Studies), Drew Davis (marketing), P.J. Fitzgerald (management), Mike Johnson (consumer affairs), Tyrone King (Health Studies), Greg McElroy (business marketing), Cory Reamer (finance), Chris Rogers (consumer affairs), Ali Sharrief (human environmental science), Travis Sikes (consumer affairs), Heath Thomas and Lorenzo Washington (human environmental science). McElroy finished his undergraduate degree in just three years with a 3.86 grade point average while graduating magna cum laude. On top of that, another 10 players are on track to graduate in December of 2009. In 2008, Alabama had six players with degrees already in hand.

TIDE LEADS NATION IN GRADUATES: Alabama's 12 graduates on the 2009 roster are the most of any school in the Bowl Championship Subdivision. The Crimson Tide is four graduates ahead of any other SEC school with Auburn checking in fifth with eight graduates. Boston College and the Tide season-opening opponent Virginia Tech are tied for second with 10 graduates while Miami and Penn State are fourth with nine. (see sidebar for complete list)
